From the owners of Pawn & Co. and 29th Apartment, comes the magical concept behind StoryVille.

Steve and Keti Thomas have conjured the ultimate themed-bar located in the midst of Melbourne CBD. Divert off Lonsdale St and stumble upon the hidden gateway to a place combining your favourite stories with your favourite spirits.

The fairytale theme will resonate with many guests and their childhood. The first stop when you walk in is the Mushroom Palace, decorated with illuminated toadstools, including one arching psychedelically over the bar.

Innovative cocktails highlight the fairy tale theme including the signature "Through the Looking Glass", alcohol vanilla cream tea served in a teapot over dry ice.

Sip on these whimsical concoctions whilst sitting in the Birdcage, a sitting area enclosed by an enormous gold birdcage.

Head up to the second level to revel in a Narnia themed lounge and extravagant, towering library.

There is definitely not a dull moment in this establishment. Their fun drinks menu is aided by a small menu of cheese, cured meat and jaffles, which come with fun names such as "Cinderella's Ride" for a jaffle with pumpkin filling.
