1806 / the year that defined the Cocktail.

Since its humble beginnings over a decade ago, 1806 has very quickly reached international recognition, winning the award for The Worlds Best Cocktail Menu in 2008, less than a year after opening its doors. Since then it has become firmly steeped in the Melbourne cocktail culture, attracting the finest mixologists from Melbourne and abroad. The amazing attention to detail – from preparation to service – is world class and we pride ourselves on the unique expertise of each of our individual mixologists and hostesses/hosts.

1806 is Melbourne’s most unique, full service, cocktail bar. Combining “prohibition-era” decor, and quirky, insightful staff, with a repertoire of classic cocktails to please everyone from the casual patron to the connoisseur, 1806 is an experience like no other.

We are unable to accommodate any guests under the age of 18 years in the venue.
Under the Liquor Control Reform Act 1998 it is an offence

to supply alcohol to a person under the age of 18 years (Penalty exceeds $8,000)
For a person under the age of 18 years to purchase or receive liquor (Penalty exceeds $700)

After Dark - Recipes for the Restless

Partnering with JT. Productions, at-home audiences will be shown how to master the art of perfectly balanced cocktails from the team at 1806. To keep our mixologists on their toes, the episodes will be co-hosted by a locally renowned comedian.

Step by step, our team will instruct the comedian and live audience how to mix your own cocktails from the comfort of your own homes. Each episode in the three part series will focus on a particular spirit; whisky, gin and vodka.

We hope you will join us for a fun evening of cocktail mixing and drinking!
