A FLANNEL Guide to Melbourne Wine Bars

There is nothing like a shopping trip to the iconic fashion capital of Australia and days spent wandering Melbourne's favourite shopping strips. Of course, what follows shopping days are wine bar evenings to showcase your favourite purchases. Peppered across the bustling streets of Melbourne lies a collection of wine bars, each offering a bespoke blend of ambiance and flavour.

No need to worry which you’ll choose, we’ve done the hard search for you! As curators of playfulness and individual essence, join us as we uncork the next 5 wine destinations for your hit list:

  1. Wally’s: Nothing builds up a thirst quite like a shopping splurge, conveniently this one is just a 2 minute walk from our FLANNEL and FLANNEL Him Albert Park stores. Wally’s embodies a European-esque vibe, with an emphasis on rare and vintage French wines, and a regularly-evolving snack menu. Think stylish comfort, a new local favourite that you can’t miss! Only open Tuesday-Sundays.

  2. Albert's Wine Bar: Step into the world of timeless elegance at Albert's Wine Bar, tucked away just behind Armadale’s famous Kings Arcade. With its sophisticated decor and intimate ambiance, Albert's exudes an air of refined luxury that's sure to impress even the most discerning palate. Indulge in a glass of your favourite vintage or explore their curated global wine list (featuring a strong selection of non-wine options). Only open Tuesday-Sundays.

  3. Lilac Wine Bar: Nestled in the backstreets of Cremorne, Lilac Wine Bar is a hidden gem, the latest by Melbourne’s beloved Mulberry Group. From its wood-fired cooking to its extensive wine list, every detail at Lilac is designed to delight the senses. Casual-industrial meets intimate-chic atmosphere. With great music and courtyard dining available for those warmer evenings, this one is a must! Only open Tuesday-Saturdays.

  4. Don's: For those in search of a lively atmosphere and vibrant energy, Don's in Prahran is the ultimate destination for great hospitality, offering a dynamic mix of cocktails, plates (especially famous for their spoonfuls of pasta and focaccia) and fun people. Hot tip: They don’t take bookings so get in quick on a Saturday evening.

  5. Toorak Cellars: Just a quick 10-minute stroll from our FLANNEL Hawksburn store, with its welcoming ambiance and expertly curated selection of wines, Toorak Cellars invites guests to explore the world of wine with curiosity and sophistication.
