Tailor-made cocktails at CloakroomMelbourne, Victoria

If you thought Melbourne's drinking scene was lacking in the tailor-cum-bar department, you'll be thrilled to hear about The Cloakroom Bar.

This 40-person establishment, hidden on the 46th floor of Southbank’s Shadow Play by Peppers, is managed by just three bartenders who make almost all of the specialty elements – infused liqueurs, house-smoked preserves – ahead of time.

The 10-strong beverage list is heavily influenced by Japanese flavours (most evident in the Day 1, a sake, Haku vodka and miso-infused pickled tomato cocktail), which makes perfect sense when you discover the made-to-measure suits are laser cut and handcrafted in Tokyo. The bar and tailor shop are separated only by a glass cabinet, although both spaces enjoy panoramic views across Melbourne’s cityscape.
