Top 5 Wine Bars in Melbourne

Melbourne is known for its excellent devotion to all things culture, and Melbourne tours will take you to refined restaurants, upmarket galleries and everything in between. One of the best ways to dive headfirst into the heady culture on offer is to grab a bottle and watch the world go by from one of the city’s welcoming wine bars.

Throughout the streets of Melbourne, you’ll come across wine bars in all shapes and sizes, ranging from local, family-run affairs, to high-end offerings that have been opened by renowned chefs and sommeliers. Let’s dig into some of the best. 


Embla marks the spot for professional people in the Central Business District. Set behind Carlton’s popular Town Mouse, this stylish bar promises plenty of delicious wines alongside simple snacks and appetizers.

Cumulus Up

Set on the popular Flinders Lane, Cumulus Up was designed by renowned architect Pascal Gomes-McNabb, who has given it a flourish of interior charm with an industrial edge. Run by Andrew McConnell, you can expect relaxed snacks. like anchovies on toast and double
cooked duck buns. while you sip on mouth-watering grape varieties.

Kirk’s Wine Bar

Tucked away down Hardware Lane, Kirk’s Wine Bar offers visitors a local look into wine life in the city. Grab a seat outside and tuck into one of the many flavours from Europe and the rest of the world, or sit inside where the huge windows flood the room with a beautiful, natural light. 

Bar Liberty

Formerly a taqueria, Bar Liberty boasts a minimalist design with polished concrete floors, low pendant lights, and a collection of vintage curiosities that draw in visitors from far and wide. The cosy atmosphere makes the perfect backdrop for a relaxing after-dinner drink or two. 

Bellota Wine Bar

Located on the Left Bank in southern Melbourne, Bellota has an expansive wine list that’s served up alongside a range of snacks. On the blackboard, you can choose from one of many hyper-local wines or unusual imports, which you can enjoy by the glass or carafe – or simply have a taste if that’s all you fancy.

Melbourne’s wine scene feels incredibly local thanks to the sprawl of vineyards and valleys that surround the city. When you’re in town, it’s worth picking out a wine bar or two to snuggle down into, sample some of the local wine flavours, and watch the world unfold around you.
