Enter the Void at MONA's underworld loungeTasmania, Australia

Whirl down a jutting, spiral staircase and into the Void (Bar). You’ll find it lurking on the lowest level of Mona – the Museum of Old and New Art – carved beneath its rusted steel casing and dwarfed by the vast slab of Triassic sandstone against which it rests. Dabble in a pot of local Moo Brew beer before you tackle the 6000 square metre labyrinth of provocative art.

A shot of absinthe helps the colours pop, but indulge in a second and find the museum’s wall of porcelain vaginas, or the working set of bowels really speaks to you – really. Admire the legs on a glass of Moorilla from the winery above as you sink into an Edwardian armchair.

Prep for your adventure the right way – it’s time for Absinthe.
