Nicely located in Spring Street just opposite the parliament is one of those must visit bars located at the heritage listed Windsor Hotel. The bar serves food which is very Melbourne and inexpensive. The staff are great and the service was very good.

I no longer live in Melbourne but I always love having a beer at the Cricketers. In fact I am writing this review whilst sitting at the bar having a beer on a Sunday afternoon. Probably my favourite bar in Melbourne .

This has a great long bar which has pride of place around the middle of the room. The surrounding walls have all sorts of cricketing memorabilia, along with modern touches such as big screen TVs. The mirrors directly underneath the memorabilia, provide a spacious and...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

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
