Restaurant and Cafe

Hide away in Dessous for a few hours and soak up the best of Melbourne’s wine-bar culture.

Translating to ‘underneath’ in French, this basement bar is tucked under Flinders Lane, serving wine-friendly food from evening until late. Come for snacks or sit down to a chef’s menu – the choice is yours.

Pork katsu sandos, roast duck, lobster doughnuts, or crab noodles with nori and XO sauce could be on the menu when you visit.

The bar at Dessous can handle everything from classic cocktails to creative and highly seasonal drinks, while the wine list numbers more than 100 bottles.

There is an emphasis on biodynamic and sustainable winemakers, and lesser-known varieties and regions, so you’re bound to try something you’ve never had before.

The look is glamorous yet moody, with low lights, green marble, black lacquered tables, dark floral wallpaper and vintage objects scattered around. And there are plenty of hidden nooks perfect for whiling away a couple of hours – or even the whole night.
