Why locals love it

In a city filled with unusual and quirky bars, Section 8 stands out as a fun choice for a warm summer’s evening. Caged off down one of Melbourne’s many laneways (don’t be afraid to wander down them, they’re all basically safe), you’ll find an inviting beer garden, and a bar with a difference.

Why you should visit it

The bar at Section 8 has been constructed inside a shipping container (those big ones you see on the back of international boats)! And the tables are old shipping pallets. Aside from this fun gimmick, Section 8 is an open air bar, that allows you to take full advantage of the warm weather, and has a great range of beers, wines and cocktails.

Special tip

Section 8 can be a little difficult to find for newcomers it’s on Tattersalls Lane, off Chinatown.

A little quirky outdoor spot with chilled out tunes and a relaxed vibe, but in the middle of the city.
