It's very cramped so get there early. There's a limited range of 'finger' food, which is all very good, but it has the most WONDERFUL ATMOSPHERE AND MUSIC!

This is a wonderful little suburban wine bar. Quirky space, great bites to eat, and live music. One day I will get to one of their champagne tasting events.

Stinking hot and no relief in this stuffy bar I'm afraid.....if it weren't for the jugs of Mojitos and reasonable food I wouldn't have stuck around. The staff were very aloof and looked like they thought they were doing us a favour by serving us...and it wasn't cheap by any standards. There are better small bars but if this is your local you could do worse.More

My wife and I dropped in for a drink here, as we were staying up the road in an Airbnb. It was a cosy little bar. The bar staff were a little aloof, but the cocktails were quite good. We realised about an hour into...our drink that it was a gay bar (at least the night we were there). Should have guessed from the location and name ;-p. We had a fun night.More

Well our first impression was not great. Purely because it was too busy and we could not get a seat. There were empty tables but they were reserved.. Reserving tables in a busy establishment is a dumb idea. We could have sat down had a...drink and be gone by the reserved time. Also the prices are on the very high side.. only craft or boutique beers.. $10 for a can of Guinness.. $20 + for cocktails. It's obviously popular but I wouldn't go back.More

Great vibe, busy, cosy, back room fire for winter, outdoor garden for summer, spring and autumn - all in a handkerchief sized area. Great drinks and food. Tram seat booths in the front bar room, mixed drinks on the go and some very happy customers....It's like being at a party - one that's very well stocked.More

Parked across the road at the station, lunch, then jump on the train to the stadium for a Sunday afternoon game. Small quaint bar serves good wines and beers. There are two beer taps and the beers are changed with every barrel, always a nice...draught beer. The Pinot is excellent. Joking with the staff that I only visit because of the cauliflower and almonds, but there is an element of truth here, absolutely fabulous. But the menu has many very tasty dishes, try the beef on toast with beetroot. Staff very attentive and friendly.More

We stumbled upon this place while taking and impromptu stroll through Maylands and was drawn in by the quirky décor and the jazz band playing in a tiny corner of the bar. We sat out the back in a quaint little courtyard and enjoyed homemade...lemonade and some beignets - 4 small ones for $16, a little steep!More

Amazing place, great food, friendly staff who provide amazing service. Amazing outside area and garden but a few booths and seats at the bar too!! Excellent place and a favourite spot for a fun afternoon.

This is just a lovely spot. It’s only drawback is it’s size but if you get in early, no worries. Great wines, cocktails and always an interesting guest beer. We dropped in a few nights back for a drink and some nibbles. The food was...delicious and set us up for Rossonero Pizza just round the corner. Parking is generally easy and often you can get a spot right outside.More
