Melbourne's Most Romantic Hidden Bar

A cellar since 1854

Tucked away in the old bluestone cellars of the original Victoria Brewery, hides Life’s Too Short – Melbourne’s most romantic petite luxe wine & cocktail bar.

Our menus feature back-vintage wines, top shelf spirits, incredible cocktails and artisan produce lovingly curated by our team.

With it’s own Sommelier, Mixologist and Chef, the old cellar is also home to Everything But Gin Distillery and regular Wine Matchmaker events.

all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.”
