Cabinet Bar Geelong

Everyone loves a cocktail. Whether it’s a whisky sour, a mojito or an espresso martini, you’ll find an abundance of little bars making drinks with big personalities. One very special venue is Cabinet Bar Geelong, Melbourne’s sister venue to Cabinet Bar & Balcony.

Located in the heart of Little Malop Street, you will be met with many decisions to make and many concoctions to be had.

The bar keeps with the theme of its established Melbourne origins (which has been going for an impressive 10 years), and maintains their focus on stylish cocktails, bar drinks and share-style food, in a pleasing intimate atmosphere.

Our favourite thing about this cosy bar is that it actually takes inspiration from its Geelong customers for its cocktail menu, truly making its regulars feel at home.

From well-done classics to elaborate concoctions, the original classics are the heroes with names such as Penny from the Block, Rachel Rebel, Wendy’s Tonic and The Howie. We hear the Brandy Snap Matt is the one to try though, tasting literally like a brandy snap in a glass – yes please! And just for $18, these delicious concoctions are a steal!

You can also enjoy beer and wine if you are that way inclined – especially with their happy hour from 5:30pm everyday and all day Tuesday. With $4 Furphy’s and $6 house wines, what’s not to love?

While the drink options and decor more than hold their own, it’s the meal options at Cabinet that capture our attention, with a range of share dishes. Flatbreads and a mix of tapas provide the backbone to a much-loved menu. We recommend you indulge in the flatbreads which have six different topping combinations to choose from. Perfect for a group catch up with the guarantee of a flavour to suit everyone – and you can get them for just $10 on Wednesdays.

With a strong focus on customer service, the friendly and intimate vibe is most fitting for this stunning venue, which features patterned floor tiles, a deep brown wooden bar and seating that allows you to look out onto the street. Add cocktails, classic decor and balcony to the mix, and you can see why Cabinet Bar and Balcony remains so popular.

Cabinet Bar is all about the cocktails, good times and good vibes.
