We visited the bar after dinner to try a selection of their absinthe. They have a great international range of absinthe including 3 from Australia. They also have an extensive cocktail menu. We enjoyed the service and atmosphere. The bar is open until 3am.

found this by accident but loved the vibe and the music. staff were great. By far best lemon lime bitters and the shared plates were really nice.

Hi Miss Ryan,

Thank you for your glowing feedback on Ryan who is our venue manager and has impeccable customer service.

I am sorry to hear you no longer come to our venue because of a single staff member. Hopefully the two stars isn't your rating for our business.

Please pop back again one day and give us another go, we strive to give the best customer service in town.

Regards

Bar Ampere

We visited Bar Ampere after the theatre and really enjoyed it! The décor is so much fun with over 11 artists adding their art to the outside walls and ceiling. We had the absinthe fountain which is definitely an experience and then went on to a good red wine. We also had a charcuterie plate and a cheese platter which were very good.

Great music, good atmosphere, a very typical Melbourne laneway bar - chilled and relaxed.

I was in the City yesterday afternoon and decided to drop in at Bar Ampere for a drink because it was pouring heavily. My friend and I have been here many times and have always recommended it to friends or brought people along.

We got there about 10 mins to 4pm and was told by the staff setting up that they open at 4pm. The manner of the staff was "I'm annoyed, please go away" and we were slightly uncomfortable but decided to wait outside as it was pouring rain.

We were waiting quietly at a corner at the outside sitting area and a few minutes later this same staff came out and started banging and moving all the tables and chairs very loudly. He finally then went through the front door and slammed it hard deliberately behind him.

By this time we were quite put off and a bit intimidated by the display. We decided to head off to another place despite the rain as we didn't want to be served by him when the bar did eventually open.

Unfortunately even if the bar is not officially open, staff do represent the business while on the premises and this experience had such a negative impact I won't be returning again despite the good wine, nor recommend anyone to.
