The Carlton Yacht Club is unique in that it is a specialist cocktail bar in an area famous for Italian restaurants and cafes. Down the road from some of our favourite places in the world in Cinema Nova and Readings, we are open 7 days a week until late (1am Sunday – Wednesday and 3am Thursday – Saturday). Catering to a diverse range of patrons; from transient tourists from around the country and overseas to locals, students and hospitality neighbours.


Opened in August 2002, CYC is now very well established and very much a part of the fabric of Lygon Street and Melbourne. As our logo says: “Building & destroying reputations since 2002”. We look to provide a fun and friendly refuge from today’s hustle and bustle where our guests’ happiness is paramount. CYC is a warm and welcoming place with a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.


Every night we like to cater to anyone and everyone with our large selection of beers, wines & of course cocktails. Chilled vibe and a great atmosphere all night long, we are the perfect meet up spot for before dinner drinks, or afterwards for a night-cap or three.
