    Beautiful atmosphere as usual and great fun. Understand service is tricky coming out of the lockdowns. But we waited for ages in the line at the front to get in and we had a booking. Lost 20 mins of our 2 hr timeslot in the line. Probably need more staff on if possible.

    This was our 2nd time here, and I don’t know if it’s because I’m comparing it to our awesome first experience but the service just wasn’t the same. Upon walking in the doors the whole place had an odour that I just couldn’t pick but it didn’t seem to fade for our whole 2 hours. The last time we were there the staff were so onto it, always checking in and especially when it came to ordering our first drink, we even got a free shot when settling our bill. But we didn’t get served after we sat down for what felt like awhile, so much so we had to pull someone aside and ask if we could order a drink which is not the style of service we had previously received. The staff behind the bar were awesome and so open to telling us about the drinks they were creating so that really saved us. Overall it’s a beautiful place and still highly recommend it, I know covid has put us all through a lot and just hope that is was just the staff getting back into the swing of it.

    Definitely a lovely place. We ordered 4 cocktail drinks and they are all amazing. The food was decent too. Perfect place for a date. The only area of improvement is that when we are trying to order a second round of cocktails while still going with the first round because we were under time pressure - the staff assumed we were asking when our food was coming. She came to us and explained that the kitchen was busy and didn't give us a chance to speak and then turned to serve the customer next to our table then left. We had to wait for another 10 mins before getting a hold of her. Understand she was trying to be helpful and it was a busy night, but it's equally important to hear the customer's needs. Otherwise, it was a great night!

    We had the most wonderful afternoon at Nick & Nora’s yesterday. Everyone was completely bedazzled by such a venue and all the quirky and luxurious details of such a hidden-away gem. Most importantly, my Mum had a brilliant gathering. The service was excellent and everything wriggled along seamlessly. The food and drinks we ordered were delicious and we worked our way through any dietary concerns easily. Enormous gratitude to your lovely, vivacious and talented staff. Thanks again for accommodating us and making it such a special occasion. We ‘retired’ to the Green Room at La Madonna in the Next Hotel for coffee, cake and more bubbles and it capped off a really stunning Melbourne afternoon.

    Unusual cocktails, small menu, great concept let down by rude, arrogant staff. Particularly the greeting hostess. Derogatory at best. Waiters were okay, we had a 2 hour sitting that we were then rushed out of after spending half our sitting waiting for our food to arrive, we ordered a charcuterie board that required no cooking …

    Absolutely love Nick & Nora and recommend it to everyone to book which they have been doing However last night I especially booked to have a Jimeny Cricket cocktail (my favourite) but at 9pm they’d sold out!!! It was explained that they had sold 300 of them since 5pm when they normally sell 100. I was amazed! So hopefully next time I can have one again I did love my Belle of Barbados though xx

The drinks are expensive but strong and delicious, so totally worth it! The ambience here was incredible and the stories behind the cocktails were such a nice touch! The bathrooms were also incredibly clean!! The staff were incredible! So fun and always working super hard!! Overall the experience was incredible and totally worth the price, I just didn’t want to leave!!

    If you like a 1920's/murder mystery theme, this is the bar for you. The service is exceptional - from the door greeting to the regular check-ins of the staff and manager. This has become one of our go-to places for a few wines or cocktails. If you've never been, look the location up properly ahead of time. Highly recommend.
