Union Electric Bar & Rooftop Gin Garden

13 Heffernan Ln, Melbourne VIC 3000

A cheeky little laneway cocktail bar and rooftop gin garden serving up the finest cocktails, craft beers, gin, rum, loud shirts and old school hip hop.

We are restless creators: constantly evolving drink menus, inventing strange and wonderful new flavours for your mouth hole and bending rules as we twist and reshape the classics, utilising and supporting Australia’s glorious local suppliers… All under the watchful eye of Mr. Bill Murray.

We take our craft (but certainly not ourselves) seriously and try our very best to provide a great atmosphere in which to sip top class drinks without the hoity-toity bar tender clichés.

You’ll find us hidden under the lightning bolt on Heffernan Lane in Melbourne’s Chinatown.

And after the chaos of the past few years it’s so great to be back doing what we were born to do…

Make great drinks, wear loud shirts, listen to awesome music and have a good time.

Union Electric is back.
