1806 is the year that the word Cocktail was first defined in print.
1806 is also the name of the internationally recognised Cocktail bar which in 2008 won an award for
“The Worlds Best Cocktail menu”
Since inconspicuously opening their doors in late 2007 this Classic styled Cocktail bar has embedded itself as a key player in the Melbourne bar scene. The aforementioned award winning cocktail menu tells the history of the world through the bottom of a glass. Starting in the mid 1700’s with the Fish House Punch the drinks list contains a different cocktail from almost every decade as well as their notable descendants. There is literally a drink to suit every palate all accompanied by a short but informative anecdote regarding their origin.
The other notable thing about 1806 is our teams amazing attention to detail regarding the service they provide. With the venue being treated in the same manner as a fine restaurant you are greeted at the door and escorted to a table. Here you are provided with ice cold water and a warm smile thus allowing you sit back, relax and watch the show comfortably within your own space. Seating is limited so to avoid disappointment we recommend reserving a table especially if you are hoping to join us as part of a large group on the weekend.* With a recently launched sharing style food offering and a great selection of beer and wine 1806 is a wonderful destination venue that has something for everyone.
1806 is also well known for providing unique experiences such as our Make your own cocktail classes and the increasingly popular Murder Mystery nights. For more information these events please follow this link 1806 Events.
1806 is a drinking experience like no other, so come down and get in on the secret.
