The Noble Experiment


A VENUE WITH A FLAir FOR FINE COCKTAILS, WHISKIES & UPMARKET FARE

The Noble Experiment draws its name and inspiration from the 1920's prohibition era. The iconic building sits on a cosy corner in eclectic Collingwood. 

As its name suggests, the venue is impassioned by experimentation, creativity and strives to offer patrons a unique experience in the hospitality capital. The Noble Experiment has the largest collection of bottle and barrel aged cocktails in the country and cocktail maestro, Linus Schaxmann, widely recognised as an international cocktail connoisseur, prudently manages this delicate process. 

If whisky is your tipple of choice, owner Daniel Lemura will satisfy your penchant for unique and obscure whiskies from Australia and around the world. Noteworthy champagnes, wine and craft beer also populate the drinks menu. 

The food, courtesy of Chef Cameron Bell is inspiring, rustic and focused on quality ingredients. Its food that you can come to eat with friends and family, sharing in the experience of the flavours and cooking techniques. 

The Noble Experiment has three distinct spaces, which span the length of the building. Upstairs is a quaint and intimate cocktail bar perfect for quiet drinks, downstairs is the ambient and calming restaurant hall and the basement is a mysterious and animated space that is used for functions and pop up concepts. 

 

Eat

Food is better shared and we love the idea of collective dining, be it your partner for a quiet date or family and friends for a special occasion. The food is all about the quality, with a strong emphasis on local and regional produce and fare.

Drink

We are famous for our bottle and barrel aged cocktails here at The Noble Experiment but cater to all tipple persuasions. Conventional cocktails with a twist, boutique whiskies, French champagne, local vino and interesting craft beer will satisfy the most discerning of palates. 

Be Merry

The Noble Experiment is all about having a good time. We have regular whisky master classes, some saucy burlesque, dj's and everything in between to take your fancy. Join our Noble Experimenters and stay up to date with all that's going on.
