Merivale presents J&M, an intimate cocktail bar on Level 2 of the historic Angel Hotel.

A unique and intimate hidden gem in the heart of the CBD, J&M is a tribute to the late, legendary Mr. John and the ingenious Merivale Hemmes, and their multi-level fashion outlet House of Merivale that once stood proudly at the historic Angel hotel.

The '60s- and '70s-style cocktail bar serves up an extensive array of whiskies, specially crafted cocktails and a nostalgic food offer to complement. If whisky and cocktails aren't your thing, plenty of ice cold Australian craft beer, great value wines and champagnes are also on offer. It's an experience like no other with stylish barmen and waitresses, exquisite furnishings and music that will take you back in time.


J&M Cocktails

We make our cocktails using the best ingredients we can find. All of our juices are squeezed daily by hand and all of our syrups are prepared in house. Garnishes are cooked, dehydrated or candied by us, in our kitchen. Our block ice is frozen and laboriously hand cut by our bar team, weekly.

The cocktails, smooth sounds, tongue-in-cheek canapés and throwback glamour of the ’70s. Here’s how to capture the sophistication and charm of J&M.
