The 18th Amendment Bar – Geelong

Step back in time to 1920s Chicago in the Prohibition era

Golden Plate Awards in 2022

  • HIGHLY COMMENDED Best Cocktail Bar or Cellar Door

FIRST round judgES COMMENTS in 2022         

18th Amendment in Geelong screams “speakeasy”. Celebrating everything ‘Prohibition era’, without the actual prohibition, this gem channels the boozy dens of the 1920s Chicago and New York except here the jazz and booze flow freely and the Feds have better things to do.

Personalised professional service defines 18th Amendment. Service standards were good. The FOH teams served within a reasonable time considering the number of customers. I’m delighted that 18th Amendment has upped the quality of foods and serviced since our last visit. The food and drinks look great with a variety of produce adorned with spreads and gels and the portion sizes were generous.

With a wall of spirits stretching to the ceiling and a team of mixologists slinging signature cocktails to suit any taste and budget, an hour or two in the 18th Amendment will reward customers with great booze, atmospheric jazz, terrific grazing options and the chance to meet old chums and new in a warm, comfortable atmosphere. One for a special occasion of any kind. Pricing across the board is perfect for the target market, and the quality and presentation of the cocktails especially is outstanding. For the depth of service engagement, the variety of stock available, and the uniqueness of the venue – the value for money at 18th Amendment is exceptional. Recommended.
