Embla review image



122 Russell Street, Melbourne

There’ll always be a place in this world for quiet bars, but if drinking in a library isn’t your bag, get yourself to Embla, where the music is loud and the room is almost always ​​chockablock. The crew here want you to have a good time—they certainly are—and make traversing the broad-ranging wine list effortless and fun. Within it you’ll find a mix of progressive and old-school producers from Australia and around the world, as well as a few hard-to-find drops not normally available to the public. The food, most of which gets fire-adjacent at some point, is ridiculously good, too.
