Great on a wintery Sunday afternoon (especially after a footy game at Optus Oval), if you want to listen to some cool tunes, but be able to hear your friends without yelling at each other.
If you're lucky the deli across the road will bring over some left over focaccia's and other goodies for you to snack on whilst sipping on your bevvie.
Dress Code: Laid back and casual (but I guess Melb trendy as well)!!
An After Dinner venue for a cognac or martini. A great place to chill out on a chez lounge and be waited on for a expensive but well mixed drink. Here's a tip. Try this place out NOT on a friday or saturday night. The interior is beautiful!
Dress Code: not sure but i guess like a restaurant
Great Neighbourhood bar with great pub food and one of the best beer gardens in the area. This top spot is great when you want to get away from the main strip and relax with a beer and a mate.
Dress Code: Come as you are.
Most melburnians know about this classic cool pub. But if you are new to Melbourne it would be considered a hidden gem. Go there for a relaxing drink and a HUGE and cheap pub meal. A word of warning about the service, the people behind the bar are very efficient but can be a bit short with you so don't go to this pub to tell the barman your troubles. Still it's an institution and hasn't changed a bit in all the years I've been going there.
Dress Code: Definately no ties
