    What to Expect
    We start by meeting guests at The Atrium for a quick get-to-know you. The tour begins with a short background about the founding of Melbourne, and a history of our early infatuation with booze.

    Walking through Melbourne's eastern laneways, we arrive at our first bar for a quick libation and a light snack. We depart for more stories of murders, secret men's clubs and racing icons, before arriving at our second bar, and the spiritual home of Melbourne's laneway culture.

    We then walk through Melbourne's old red light district and China Town, before finally arriving at our third and final bar for dinner on the rooftop overlooking the magnificent State Parliament. After dinner, guests are welcome to stay at our final bar at their leisure.

    Fun night! We found ourselves in the back alleys of Melbourne, reliving well told stories which either confirm or refute the legends we had heard about growing up... Karina, was enthusiastic and fun. The food was magnificent. Great format...thank you.

    Unique tour and carina was exceptional with her knowledge of Melbourne and its history. Some info for Ben, the last stop was out of the way being a table by itself on the top floor of a bar. Would have been better to finish off...More
