Tucked behind the Town Hall, this nice little bar has Japanese beer on tap and blackboard filled with appealing cocktails. Nice setting with balcony seating.
Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.
A little known, small bar with food, tucked away at the back of Swanson Street with a bar overlooking the comings & goings. Just here for drinks this time. Got a seat on the balcony with a heater to take the chill out of the...More
Love bringing friends visiting Melbourne to this little bar. It’s got everything you’re looking for; excellent drinks, well priced, great staff and delicious food. Sitting out on the balcony over Swanston st with good friends and good drinks is hard to top!
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

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
of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
