Bar Di Stasio
Lean against the high marble bar in this St Kilda institution, sip on drinks served in beautiful glassware and partake of some of the best bar food in Melbourne. We would recommend a Aperol Spritz and After School Sandwich.
31 Fitzroy St, St Kilda http://distasio.com.au/about/bar-di-stasio/
The Black Pearl
Described as "a neighbourhood bar, deep within the heart of Fitzroy" this gem recently won the Best International Cocktail Bar 2017. Open until 3am this bar has produced some of Melbourne's best bartenders and its cocktail list is award winning. We recommend The Intern and The Ploughman's Board.
304 Brunswick St, Fitzroy https://www.blackpearlbar.com.au
"Where food, drink and mischief meet" the Grossi stable's new alleyway bar again allows you to party on until 3am. Fabulous Italo-Australian wines, amazing cocktails and delights such as bolognaise waffles and crumbed quail will make you never want to leave. We recommend The Jungle Bird and a Cod Sloppy Joe!!!
