Welcome to Cabinet Bar & Balcony.


01.A delicious tapas menu takes you through a range of tastes and side dishes to compliment any of our wines. Break bread and enjoy an ever changing flatbread pizza menu, or just huddle over a warm shared plate.


02.Not just pretty faces, our wine list is a corker, our steady hands and love bring you the best cocktails in Melbourne concocted with the precision of a surgeon. The beer is cold and the mulled wine a specialty.


03.Overlooking busy Swanston Street, you can remove yourself from the hussle and crazies. Just relax and watch the world pass you by from the balcony. With good company what is there to worry about?


04.Its pretty much your loungeroom with table service. relaxed, smooth and just a delight. Our friendly staff are here to serve and make your visit a special one. If we didnt work here we would be regulars.
