Melbourne is known for its hipster-hyped cafes, romantic restaurants and of course its bar scene. If you are keen to get out and away from your usual watering hole and explore different and unique bars, you have to check out the list I’ve composed of the best themed bars in Melbourne that you may not have heard of and I can guarantee, at least one of these bad boys are going to suit your unique style.

29th Apartment 29 Fitzroy St, St Kilda:

Say you are one of those people who can’t decide whether you want to go out or you want to stay in; well fear no more, because with a cocktail lounge in the style and theme of a classic New York apartment, you will feel like you’re at home (well at least some New Yorker’s home anyway) and spend a quality night eating movie-themed bar snacks with an ‘Acropolitan’.

The Carton Club 193 Bourke St, Melbourne:

Summon your inner beast and get wild at the jungle themed Carton Club. With three epic floors, featuring The Carton on level one, which is overseen by Wally the Ostrich and Gerald the Giraffe is the main bar with a dining room and balcony. Then we have Hasti Bala, on the third floor, making a statement with its velvet booths and DJ booth framed with an elephant head. Then lastly, there is the Palmz, a rooftop bar that is a secluded hideaway to escape the craziness that is the dance floor.

Berlin Bar 16 Corrs Ln, Melbourne:

Known as Melbourne’s secret cocktail bar, concealed high above a myriad of laneways, occupying an unlikely location, Berlin Bar is unique bar inspired by the wall that once divided Berlin. East meets west at Berlin, where east features white banquettes, crystal curtains and throbbing beats and west sports black steel bunk beds, 80’s tabletop video games. Come here if you like a bit of sugar in your crazy cocktail.
