With a pedigree firmly rooted in New York’s now defunct Milk & Honey, The Everleigh is without question Australia’s best bar for classic, pre-Prohibition cocktails. The bartenders are impeccably trained, the vibe is no-details-missed 1920s, and every shard of ice is frozen in a custom-built freezer and carved by hand. Shelves around the room are adorned with first-edition cocktail guides and every drink comes in heavy-cut crystal tumblers or delicately etched coupettes. This is about as elegant as it gets in Melbourne.
