Welcome The Lost Ones Basement Bar to the SMWS!

The SMWS Welcomes The Lost Ones as our latest Partner Bar

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society would like to formally welcome The Lost Ones Basement Bar as an official Partner Bar.

If you were to tell me there’s a whisky scene in Ballarat just a few weeks ago, I’d have a hard time believing you at face value. I’m not so much of a ‘city slicker’ to dismiss that outright, but at the same time there is a stereotypical image of most regional towns: that one big old pub with the sticky carpet and run down rooms, that one coffee shop that burns the milk, the old town statue which is the meeting point for delinquents and police alike. Ballarat has definitely stepped well and truly out of that stereotype: the cafes make great coffee, the centre of town is lovely, and The Lost Ones are hard at work creating a proper whisky-appreciators basement bar that is equal parts comfortable, knowledgable, inviting, and exciting to visit. Located just off the main drag, this is truly a whisky destination. As well as the actual Lost Ones art gallery that is well worth exploring, the Basement Bar is deliberately hard to find tucked away behind the gallery down a narrow lane, but once you’ve found it, it’s impossible to forget it.

The Lost Ones Basement Bar will be proudly the only bar in Ballarat stocking a wide range of single cask goodies from the Society, and will endeavour to carry a full range of our twelve flavour profiles on the shelf wherever possible!

Full Society member benefits to visiting the bar plus opening hours on their SMWS page here.

The Lost Ones is located at 14 Camp St, Ballarat Central, VIC.
