Eau-de-Vie is a French expression that translates to ‘water of life’. Spirits such as French brandy (eaux-de-vie), whisk(e)y, vodka and aquavit from Norway, all take their names from the alchemic notion that spirits were an elixir of life.

Eau de Vie Melbourne is an intimate, dimly lit, jazz infused speakeasy created for the discerning bon vivant. Let our amicable host and expert team of bartenders, transport you back to a much forgotten era where great service, cocktails, tommy guns and good times were king.

Come in for after work cocktails and hors d’oeuvres or book our Whisky Room for your exclusive event to impress clients with walls of rare whisky to gaze at. Celebrating something special? Join us for a 5-course cocktail degustation and let our host take you on a journey around the world, incorporating global flavours.

Come by on a Sunday afternoon, to soak in the back bar of 400+ bottles whilst you sip on whisky, as clouds of liquid nitrogen escape from the custom designed copper taps from behind the bar. Come to Eau-de-Vie for the theatre and stay for the fine drinks, food and hospitality.
