Melbourne has an extremely high concentration of funky bars. Many are quite hard to find unless you know where you are going! There's a bit of a joke that the stinkier the alleyway, the better the bar at the end of it...
Also - are you looking for bars in the CBD, or in a particular suburb, or just anywhere?
