One of Melbourne’s best-kept secrets, The Bar at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal is powered by the same historical fundamentals as the restaurant, with a pinch of present-day fairy-dust thrown in.

Look no further than the intriguing cocktail flights distilling the Blumenthal ethos into drinkable form. History and innovation collide in three-part riffs on classic drinks from the Martini to the Negroni, with snacks taken care of thanks to duck and beetroot crackers seasoned with native peppers and a Scotched quail egg with devilled ketchup. Newly open to non-diners without a booking (although it may be wise to secure a spot online), just turn up to claim a perch overlooking the greatest bartending show in town.
