52 of the best beer and wine bars in Melbourne

The world’s dominant beverages born of grape and grain have witnessed unprecedented growth over the past few years, and in Melbourne, this is no exception. So where is the best spot to sip on some in the city?

Locals and tourists alike are never far from a great glass of wine or refreshing brew in Melbourne. The idea of a third space away from home or work creates an area where individuals can truly relax and be looked after in pleasant surroundings, free from their responsibilities. As an additional bonus, these spaces are friendly and fully inclusive, in stark contrast to the restrictive old-fashioned pubs we’re used to.

Not all wine bars and craft beer venues are created equal. When you’re seeking a delicious experience that stimulates the senses, hopping aimlessly from place to place won’t do. This is where the Luckie Guides step in, offering independent, trusted and curator-researched recommendations – in a one-of-a-kind portable deck of cards.

Melbourne DRINKS WINE by Luckie guides features 52 enchanting wine bars, more than half of which opened in the past few years. These are the new grown-up corner stores that express the maturation and essential nature of our relationship with wine. Also newly launched, Melbourne DRINKS BEER by Luckie Guides is an informative and accessible guide to 52 of the best places to discover and experience craft beer, featuring specialty craft beer pubs, dedicated craft beer bars, urban breweries and even a sustainable craft beer pizzeria.

The guides also include an additional two ‘Luckie Seven’ cards that list seven of the best establishments. The Melbourne DRINKS WINE and Melbourne DRINKS BEER guides profile the most impressive hidden craft beer and wine bar gems based on experienced research and recommendations.
