About This Bar
Nestled in a secluded leafy lane way, between the Rialto and the Aquarium, Highlander is one of Melbourne’s best kept secrets. A wee taste of Scotland in the heart of the CBD, we serve contemporary Scottish cuisine from Haggis balls to Highlander Burgers and a range of Scottish cocktails, whiskies & ales. Our fun and friendly venue is the ideal place for lunch, dinner, drinks or your next function – whatever the occasion may be.
We love good food, good drinks and good fun and aim to provide you with a comfortable, warm and welcoming space with a relaxed atmosphere and friendly, flexible and genuine staff that know the true meaning of hospitality.

I would definitely recommend Highlander to any of our friends and family looking to have a function or just a night out. We had such a great time, all of the staff were so friendly, helpful and welcoming to us. They treated all of our guests with the utmost care and I really couldn’t think of anything to improve on. It was the perfect night.

Every time we hold an event at Highlander, it’s an absolute pleasure. Staff and management know how to answer questions and make for a low-stress, yet delightful night. A unique mix of bar, nightclub and lounge, the venue’s interior is perfect for all occasions; the space has warmth and energy.
