Red Eye Bar

Location:  17 Carlisle St, St Kilda VIC 3182, Australia

Hours: 3pm-1am (Monday-Wednesday), 3pm-2:30am (Thursday-Saturday), 3pm-11pm (Sunday),

The official bar of Base X backpackers hostel. Maybe not one for the locals but if you are in Melbourne for just a short time, a night at the Red Eye Bar is not to be missed. Each night they put on a different event to get involved in. Think beer pong tournaments, fancy dress events, and legendary boozy bingo nights. The drinks list may not be up to the best standard but no doubt there is fun to be had at this debaucherous drinking hole.
