Welcome To Borsch,Vodka & Tears
Borsch, Vodka and Tears is a Melbourne institution currently celebrating 22 years at the colourful end of Chapel Street. Styled after a Kraków cellar bar, Borsch is a romantic Bohemian enclave, the home of the Green Faery, an ode to a hazy and debauched bygone world. We specialise in Polish vodka, vodka-centric interpretations of classic and modern cocktails, authentic wormwood absinthe, Eastern European beers, contemporary Polish dishes and late night fun times.book a table

Our Story Our History
We combine traditional cooking techniques with local ingredients creating dishes that are authentic to both their Polish origins and Melbourne setting. The majority of our dishes are deliberately vegetarian or vegan, and we welcome customers with food sensitivities. Our food is best shared with a vodka or two.book a table
