Bar Clara is one of Melbourne’s most intimate cocktail experiences. Located at the theatre end of Chinatown, this small underground bar is lined with plush green velvet couches and comfortable leather bar stools, ideal for connecting with friends, debriefing workmates, or impressing that someone special.

It’s classy yet unpretentious, catering to the local dining, theatre, and professional crowd. Settle into a cosy corner with lo-fi beats and indulge yourself with one of the exquisite cocktails on offer, like the ‘Banoffee Special’ – inspired by the delicious banana and toffee dessert of the same name, a clarified banana whisky sour is topped with meringue and blow-torched to perfection.

Tasty cheese boards, olives, and other bar snacks are there to keep the hunger pangs at bay. Friendly and passionate bar tenders work their magic throughout the evening, producing drinks reflecting the seasons like the summer cocktail ‘Back Porch Mangoes’: tequila, fresh mango, and coconut syrup.

The menu is updated for summer, autumn, winter, and spring so there is always something new and exciting to try when the ingredients are at their most fresh and delicious!

Happy hour is available daily between 5pm and 7pm with $12 cocktail specials for a cheeky after work drop in!
