South Melbourne: much handier than Rome, Paris, Athens or San Sebastian

Few places in Melbourne feel more genuinely European than Bellota. From the soft French accent of the bartender, to the tiled floor, to the delicate Bordeaux balloons, everything has an old-world texture balanced with a clean, modern brightness. Wines focus on Europe with a fantastic selection of French by the glass and nods to interesting local stuff like an aromatic Assyrtiko (a Greek variety) from Clare Valley that’ll make your savvy-b weep with envy.

You can also drink anything from the adjoining Prince Wine Store for $15 corkage (or none if your bottle is over $80), and the spirits selection includes everything from rare brandy and grappa to local gin and Japanese whisky. There’s a raw bar, a smorgasbord of meats and cheeses (all available to take home), plus beautifully presented small bites like quail Scotch eggs wrapped in delicately flavoured morcilla and crisp breadcrumbs.
