Good vibe to this venue and able to accomodate big groups without being overcrowded. We visited over derby day weekend a couple of times and always got a table for our group with bar food options, range of drinks and good music.

Nice place for a catch up before or after the football at Docklands. Nice ambience, especially with the river view, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Food is pretty good, but perhaps a little pricey for what you get.

Easy access to public transport, especially good if you've had a few drinks! Friendly staff, food unpretentious and good. Rooftop bar a bonus on a warm Autumn day.

Central Business District
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
