Have a look at new bar, Boilermaker House


There’s a new destination for beer and whisky aficionados in Melbourne: Boilermaker House.

Coming from the Speakeasy Group (Eau de Vie Sydney and Melbourne, The Roosevelt), Boilermaker House has opened with an offering that steps away somewhat from the cocktail focus of other Speakeasy Group venues. The focus here is instead on craft beer, whisky (there’s some 700-odd bottles wrapped around the walls inside) and food.

The bar is another Melbourne partnership between Speakeasy Group owner Sven Almenning, and Eau de Vie Melbourne co-owner Greg Sanderson.

They’ve got 12 rotating tap beers and a selection of 50-odd craft brews in the fridge. Food is a big focus here, with a full kitchen and a meat and cheese bar, because let’s face it, who doesn’t like cured meats, whisky and beer?



On the drinks list the succinct selection of Boilermakers take pride of place, and they’ve arranged their whiskies and beers by flavour, rather than style or region.

And, given the high quality cocktail pedigree of the Speakeasy Group, you can also satisfy your cocktail thirst, too.

“Great service and great cocktails are what we’re known for,” said Sanderson, “so we’ve compiled a short list of killer cocktails of definitive Eau de Vie standard, all of it of course delivered with the same fun and flair we’ve become known for at Eau de Vie.”

Sanderson is overseeing the bar operations, while Jack Sotti has come across from Eau de Vie to take up the general manager role at Boilermaker House.

Boilermaker House is open seven days a week at 209-211 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne.
