Melbourne's Most Romantic Hidden Bar

A cellar since 1834

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

Our menus feature back-vintage wines, fine spirits, incredible cocktails and artisan produce lovingly curated by our team of three: a Sommelier, a Mixologist and a Chef.

The venue is also home to Everything But Gin Distillery and Wine Matchmaker events.

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