The Verdict

The newest bar addition to Swanston Street draws from the building’s seedy past, which saw it house a medical supplier whose ‘supplies’ included human skeletons. Fun stuff.

Rather than bury (pun definitely intended) the seedy underbelly, the owners decided to embrace it and have opened House Of Correction, a place for you to have a few drinks, and hopefully not find yourself in the drunk tank at the end of the night.

Featuring architectural accents that hark back to the bar’s name, you’ll find padded booths and beautiful art deco swivel chairs at the bar. The venue itself will host a four-week rotating mixed drinks menu which is supported by the well stocked back bar, a solid range of tapped beers, and a small—but well chosen we’re informed—wine selection.

Mr Kwok will be on hand to feed your needs as well, serving food until the early hours of the morning.
