Don't be deceived by the term "bar". Popped in here for a quick lunch and the $10 flatbread lunch deal has to be the best value in town. They are like a pizza, but better and lighter, and very substantial for lunch. And the staff...More

Nicely decorated long bar with benches and chairs. Jazz music was being played which gave it a great vibe. Extensive drinks and cocktails menu as well as many meal options including light snacks. Will definitely return. Thanks for the vote if you found this review...More

Look, this place isn't all that bad, if it wasn't for the crowds, especially on a Friday night. The staff are nice, and the fact that you enter the place through a door in a back alley just gives it heaps of character (and unless...More

The balcony here overlooks Swanston Street so you can watch the street life over a beverage. But from Swanston you are not quite sure how to get to it, which makes it feel a bit special. The staff are warm and friendly. The prices are...More

One of my favourite Melbourne bars. I love the atmosphere. Great cocktail and wine list. Eggplant chips aren't what they used to be though. One person we were with needed some "drinkspiration" and the staff really did well with the concoction they made for him!...More

Busy, happening little place. Great drink menu and delicious food...we had the pulled pork flat bread. Service was friendly but the night we went they were extremely busy and it was too loud to chat but otherwise a great spot to go out to !

Girlfriend and I were looking for somewhere nice in the sun to have lunch one Wednesday and found this little gem. $10 pizza specials and they were amazing! Delish!

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
