Time Out says

This Asian-leaning bar is like Chin Chin’s gothic cousin

Subterranean Go Go Bar is the little sister to upstairs restaurant Chin Chin, and like most younger siblings, is much cooler than you. We’re talking super-hip bar staff, great music, neon signs – Melbourne at its finest, which means it’s underground, crazy popular and certainly not somewhere that cares for Pimms in the sunshine.

Standout cocktails are the Thai Basil, a bracing concoction of Thai basil, gin, lemon, chartreuse, and pepper syrup; and the more complex and tangy Candied Ginger, with preserved ginger-infused Japanese whisky, lemon, honey, aromatic bitters, egg white, and peated whisky for a double dose of the good stuff.

Asian beers like Shiki, Singha, Chang and Asahi are a perfect match for a spicy menu that goes beyond bar snacks into proper sit-down options. Start with a kingfish ceviche and then get serious with the braised duck Red Curry.
