Prahran has no shortage of places for an evening tipple, be it a casual beer with friends, or a spesh cocktail date with the girls. There are sultry bars and lively enclaves to enjoy early afternoon drinks, bites or even nightcaps.

If you’re absolutely dying for a drink, or at the very least a bit parched, you’ll have no problem finding an amazing place to settle in for a short while.

Swish, suave and may we say a little naughty?  Tokosan is Greville’s call to Japan.  This Prahran gem is sophisticated & the bar has been meticulously designed – the cocktails are absolute perfection too. On a warm night, enjoy your drink otherwise stay cosy inside until it’s time to move on.

Best Bars in Prahran

Sometimes all you need is a little southern hospitality. In this case, it’s from the southern inspired bar & dining hotspot White Oaks Saloon. Craft beers, wines, spirits shipped in from the states give you something more than what you’re used to. Paired with Southern style bites & you have yourself a drink, cheeky snack & a good time.

Go from the South of the USA to Paris is a few short steps. Chez Olivier boasts to be the most authentic French Bistro in Melbourne. French wine and cocktails? – Oh mon Dieu! While they can’t give you the dazzling lights of the Eiffel Tower, the soft lighting of Greville Street at night is equally magical.

Pizza, wine, beer & a roaring fire. Sound like the perfect winter drinking spot? It’s exactly what you’ll get from Ladro Tap. Stop by with a big group, or a cute date, either way you’re sure to have a great time before you head off for your evening adventures!

Rufus Bar Prahran

Rufus is a London styled cocktail parlour fit for Winston Churchill himself. You’ll find champagne, martinis, whisky & butlers as well as the glimmering of chandeliers overhead. Quite possibly one of the best bars in Melbourne, Rufus makes an exceptional special occasion destination, or simply a beautiful setting to savour a mid-week drink.

Best Bars in Prahran

Go from London glamour, to New York grit at the Cullen’s Gramercy Social. A lively, or as the kids would call ‘bangin’ bar at the corner of Grattan Street & Commercial Road. The cocktail menu includes all of your favourites and the happy hour (between 4-7pm daily) is exceptional value. The Gramercy Social is a perfect place to start off the night, and even catch a bite to eat if you’re famished!

Bars for Sunday Sessions

Best saved for your nightcap location! Pawn & Co have just moved into Greville Street, but are not newcomers to the Chapel Street Precinct. This nightlife magnet has a reputation for hosting some of the biggest parties & a Sunday Day Spa that would shock your mother. Drop in for a drink, buy or sell a few items & leave with a few stories to tell.
