  • Bon vivant and raconteur Vernon Chalker is a Melbourne hospitality legend. All his venues are worth bending an elbow at, but Bar Ampere is his most distinctive, which is saying something.
  • Food and cocktails open late - very important to society
  • Amazing atmosphere, great staff, and cozy setting. Unfortunately i don't like absinth, so as cool as the place is, there isn't much for me to drink.
  • Hot buttered rum, yum!
  • Amazing space great cocktails and good staff
  • Best housemade ginger beer in town
  • You know when you've found a good bar when you can get a Hanky Panky and some beef short ribs after midnight on a Wednesday
  • if the other bars are too packed go here, but a little pricey
  • Great vermouth selection. Have one.
  • Lovely. Really very lovely.
  • Really funky little bar great bar food and good French wine see the secret passage to Gin Palace when you're there
  • Burger is delicious no doubt. But a bit high on the price. Good variety of gin cocktails. :)
  • Is it cocktail hour yet? Bar Ampere serve up some great drinks and you can get food into the early hours of the morning.
  • The menu is always changing. This is awesome and bad at the same time.
  • Bifteck a LHambourgeoise A burger of two beef patties, a buttermilk bun, Swiss Gruyre, carrot & grain mustard wombok slaw, finished with a side of cornichons & tomato chutney. - yessir!
  • Try a vermouth aperitif
  • It's a cool bar with the funkiest toilet.
  • Be sure to try the burger, the best in the CBD
  • Great atmosphere and good cocktails. Ask the barman for the specials as its not all on the menu.
  • Cocktail? (yeah, go on, you deserve it). Make sure to chat to the bar staff about them, the menu is mostly designed in-house (they make the classics too of course, but be adventurous!)
