BAR/D UP Video Feature // Less Than Zero // South Yarra

In collaboration with The Yamazaki Single Malt Whisky

Those living South of the city often feel hard done by. They feel like the cool bars that specialise in something are either in the CBD or Northside. Not true. Less Than Zero in Commercial Rd on the Prahran – South Yarra border boasts Melbourne’s largest collection of Japanese whisky, not to mention an extensive offering of Scotch as well. The boys who run this place are very specific about the liquor they keep and are passionate about making sure that the alcohol itself is celebrated. That’s what happens when you use quality products which are often hard to come by. Lately it has become increasingly rare to find age statement whiskies from the larger distilleries and those from Japan are no exception. Luckily these guys have some on the shelf for you to sample, either neat or in some cracking whisky cocktails which are their specialty.

The beverages may be of a very high standard but don’t be fooled, this is still a very down to earth venue, rustic and homely with food like burgers, sliders and fried chicken ribs filling the menu. If you don’t feel like sitting downstairs, you can take your drinks out into the courtyard or head up to the second level for a game of pool and on Fridays and Saturdays there are live DJs which attract a large crowd.

Whether you’re a local or coming from across the Yarra, you’re always made to feel welcome at Less than Zero and you’ll leave more than satisfied.
