We spent a couple of hours in here with friends to chat and try the cocktails. The menu is good explaining the history of the drinks. Some of the cocktails could be improved by putting some better quality spirit in them instead of the stock standard. You can upgrade but you have to ask. The Hanky Panky's was by far the best and they had a range for the sweet tooth. The snacks were quite good, we tried the Haloumi fries and olives. Service was very slow when we first got there, only approached once in the first 45 minutes but quickened after that.

It was a last minute decision on a Friday night to get pre dinner drinks. We called a few places and they were booked. We decided to just show up at 1806 and hope for the best. We were immediately seated upstairs. The staff was friendly and efficient. We loved the menu with a little blurb about every era and the menu of cocktails for that same time period. We were only there about an hour, but it was very enjoyable and we will most definitely be looking forward to a return visit

Third visit here this year, this time with friends, a group of eight, the maximum here. Cleverly, no standing, so capacity is once all seats are allocated. Our timing was perfect, a big enough area became available as we arrived. Beers, cocktails of course and smooth, speedy service amidst a great atmosphere. One of Melbourne’s very best at any time of the night.

The sausage rolls her are absolutely delicious. Definately try if you are pecking. The decor is lovely and the music isn't too loud. There was A LOT of cocktails to choose from. The two we chose were nice but nothing incredible. It's a busy place so go early or make sure to reserve!
