Milney's BarMelbourne, Australia

In Melbourne on Valentines Day weekend? Needing somewhere to take that someone special? Say no more - Milney's has you covered.

You could be forgiven for not noticing the discreet entrance to Milney's as you walk down the northern end of busy Brunswick Street. It's literally just a door without signage; nothing to suggest one of Melbourne's most chic spots lies a gentle turn of the handle behind.

But that is exactly what awaits, a luscious plant and light-filled courtyard backing onto a dimly lit bar area perfect for whispering sweet-nothings into someone's ear, provided of course that you know that person.

In fairness, Milney's is much more than just a Valentines Day specialist - it's a bar that perfects the difficult-to-perfect balance between uber-cool and unpretentious; for instance, you can pay $90 for caviar, which comes served with a side of Pringles - straight out of the box.

There's a solid cocktail list, craft and old-school beers, wines and more.

Get there before everyone knows about it.
