Woods of Windsor

I felt as though I stepped back into 1920s Melbourne chancing upon an illegal whiskey bar.  Amidst the hustle and bustle of Chapel Street, The Woods of Windsor is sophisticated and charming and definitely worth a look.  Beautifully furnished with decadent dark wood and dotted with nods to yesteryear with stunning attention to detail.   Taxidermy animals peer at you from the shelves of the well stocked bar as you peruse the cocktail menu.  The Woods is a culmination of good food and wine with an astounding whiskey collection.
