An American-style dive bar through and through.

UPDATE: MARCH 25, 2020 — Heartbreaker has teamed up with Connie's Pizza to offer free delivery of beer, bottled cocktails and pizza to a heap of Melbourne suburbs. There are two at-home drink hampers to choose from: the Heartbreaker House Party ($75) and the Heartbreaker All American ($50). Deliveries are available every night from 5–11pm. To order, call (03) 9041 0856 or head online.


When you hear that the guys behind 1806 and The Everleigh have teamed up on a new city bar, you probably imagine something fairly sophisticated. Boy, are you in for a surprise. Heartbreaker is an American-style dive bar through and through. We're talking red neon signs, black leather booths, a pool table and a jukebox full of 70s rock 'n' roll. Plus, you can grab pizza by the slice or pie from the cute little Connie's Pizza window.

Refreshment options include local and American craft beers along with a selection of whisky, mezcal and tequila — but the real standouts are their pre-batched bottled cocktails. Chose from a Negroni, a Martini, a Manhattan or an Old Fashioned. If you can't decide, take them all home with you – their 'Liquor to Go' bottle shop is open until 11pm.
