Established in 2016, Whisky Den was modeled after a hybrid of the tiny 'yokocho' alley bars of Japan and the Hutong bars of Beijing. We've scaled up (our capacity is 40, rather than 3-5), but retained that cozy feel. Our layout includes a large booth in the back and a couch-strewn mezzanine level, but the best seats in the house are at the bar. There you can chat with the staff about everything from the distillation process to the effects of climate on maturation.
Our bartenders are friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about whisky, and we're always happy to recommend a dram tailored to your taste and budget. We'll even curate a whisky flight specifically for you. Our ever-expanding list currently boasts around 370 expressions, so there's something for everyone - see our sample menu for more info.
Please note: due to our size, our evening trade is walk-in only. If you would like to schedule a set tasting we have afternoon bookings available. Email us for more info at email@example.com, or using the contact form below.
We're open from noon, daily. Come in during the day for an even more personalised experience!
We aim to highlight Australian and Japanese expressions, but our huge range includes drams from Scotland to North America and everywhere in between. We carry single malts and blends, bourbons, ryes and other grain whiskies, and even some un-aged spirit. Check the upstairs chalkboard for last pours, new arrivals and off-menu items!
We know that not everyone drinks whisky, so we stock a range of red, white, and sparkling wines, lager, ales, and dark beers, alcoholic ginger beer, pear and apple cider, and basic, premium-brand spirits.
We serve classic, whisky-based cocktails - our Old Fashioned is particularly popular.
"There's a genuine desire here to get you drinking something you can afford that you've never tried before."
"Whisky Den is small, there's no getting around it [...] but that intimacy actually fosters conversation."
"Staff are extremely knowledgeable and there's a complete lack of pretension."
