Whether you're craving a decadent cocktail or a well-executed classic, Melbourne has the answer. From old favourites to new spots, this fair city of ours knows how to cater to your beverage dreams. And, at some of them, they might even cook you up a feast for the ages while you sip inventive concoctions, local brews or world-class wines.
That's the type of fun you went searching for in 2020, and these are the results. Our most-viewed bars and pubs of the year provides a snapshot of your recent faves and a roadmap of places to visit if you haven't yet. This year, you'll find a selection of venues that persevered through a year of closures and restrictions and provided us with a respite from 2020's chaos. Mosey along to a new one or head back to your pick of the bunch and say cheers to Melbourne's most popular watering holes as chosen by your busily clicking fingers.
