Martinis and cocktails in a quirky basement lounge with eclectic old-world decor

In the latter 1800’s, down a dark Melbourne alley, there once was an infamous hospitality venue. How it was frowned upon during daylight hours, yet surprisingly, or maybe not so surprisingly, how it was frequented by all kinds at night. Whether through popular opinion, a desire for frankness, or a sense of irony, it adopted the title “Gin Palace”. However to the delight of the local wowsers and press, this drinking house was abruptly shut down by command.

With its hidden nooks and alcoves it’s hard not to immediately feel the outside world slip away. As you sip on your first martini of the night you become part of the ambience of this institution without even realising it’s happening. 

MF Imbibo has been created purely for the purpose of meeting and talking to other members and, in the short time that these monthly events have been running, many great relationships have developed among our attendee's - particularly for guests that are interested in joining the Melbourne Forum. There is no entry fee, you just need to pay for your purchases as you go, and although bookings are not essential, it's nice to know how many people we are anticipating will attend.

So, lock the last Thursday of every month into your diary and explore the hidden treasures that Melbourne offers.
