Big Mouth Cocktails

Bars, restaurants and cafes come and go in Melbourne. This is especially true of our favourite beachside suburb St Kilda, which has undergone several massive transformations over the past few decades.

Keep Your Big Mouth Open

But one main-stayer is this place. Celebrating its 21st birthday this year, Big Mouth is arguably as much a part of the St Kilda landscape as another big mouth, Luna Park.

Don’t be confused by the reference to Luna Park. Big Mouth wasn’t named after the fun park. In fact, it was a line from the Carl Hiaasen novel, ‘Double Whammy’ that inspired the founders: “You eat with your big mouth, you talk with your big mouth and you drink with your big mouth.”

Positioned right on the corner of Barkley St and iconic Acland St, Big Mouth occupies an art deco building that dates back to 1938 and retains some of its original fixtures. You know those places where you can feel the history and think, if only the walls could talk, the stories they could tell? Well, yeh, its one of those.

A cosy and casual licensed café, lounge bar and live music venue with an upstairs and downstairs, Big Mouth is a popular hangout for locals. That’s code for it attracts an eclectic mix of patrons. Let’s admit, what makes St Kilda St Kilda is its diversity, surprises and interesting characters. With a laid back, relaxed attitude, everyone is welcome at Big Mouth.

Big Mouth Cocktails

There’s a good list of signature cocktails and classics at Big Mouth with something to suit a diverse range of tastes. The bartenders have good skills and give their drinks a little extra care and attention to detail – you can feel and taste the love.

I tried the Poco Loco and The Big Mouth Berry, both Big Mouth originals, and they both tasted as delicious as they look!

Poco Loco

Reposado tequila, ginger liqueur, fresh pressed lime, passionfruit and agave nectar.

The Big Mouth Berry

Muddled berries, vodka and Campari, fresh pressed lime juice, sugar syrup and a dash of Chambord.
