Say hello to Geelong's newest bar

“Our love of wine led to us starting a collection. It all started with this collection, sharing its contents with friends. This collection led to a whisky collection, a gin collection, rum… This is our collection…this is our Archive.”
This is the philosophy for Archive.
If you’re like me, and your favourite things in the world are wine, cheese and live music, then Geelong’s newest bar, Archive, is the place to go.
Previously known as Unwined, Archive is a wine bar, bottle shop and deli concept with an extensive by the glass offering.
Archive Wine Bar offers 10 wines on their ever-changing and evolving by the glass list as well as more than 50 wines that will be available from their Coravin system – which has everything from aged Geelong Pinot Noir to Grand Cru Burgundy and extremely rare wines from all around the world. Archive offers a carefully curated selection of wines by the glass as well as craft beer and spirits from hard to find distilleries.
You’ll also be able to try some delicious cheeses, salami and charcuterie while you’re enjoying a glass of wine, beer or sampling their extensive range of whisky, gin and rum. And once you’re done drinking and sampling, you can browse through their bottle shop and deli range that will definitely meet your needs for all your home entertaining, taking something nice along to a party or just wanting something to eat on your way back to the car.
Luckily for us local music lovers, Archive is committed to supporting Geelong’s live music scene and will be focusing on offering emerging and original artists a place to play – with Melanie Horsnell from NSW on August 15 and My Elephant Ride launching a single on August 23. What more could you want??
Archive also has spaces for private functions – perfect for all your celebration needs. Give them a look for any function needs you may have.
Head to their Facebook for upcoming events or check the Forte gig guide.
Archive is located 140 High Street, Belmont.
