In the belly of The Lost Ones Contemporary Art Gallery you can find a welcoming cave of whisky, wine, cake and conversation.

Originally the Masonic Temple's dining hall for the masons, The Lost Ones Basement Bar is deliberately hard to find, but once you've found us there's no forgetting.

Our wine, spirits and cocktail list changes to respond to the seasons as well as the tastes and the dilettante nature of our guests.We offer a range of bar snacks and tasting plates to tempt the palate, and warming the heart. With an ever-growing wine list of local names, right through to well respected national and international names, you can be guaranteed to sample something you know as well as try something different.

We have a passion for the spirits, carrying a wide range of Australian and international labels and a frequently changing menu of cocktails.
