  3. Bar Margaux

    Melbourne CBD, Melbourne, Victoria

    Hidden down a laneway, it’s not easy to find this sultry late-night speak-easy and 80-seat restaurant – but its decadent decor and boujee French fare are well worth the effort. Order anything until 1am on some weekdays and 3am on weekends.

  8. China Doll
