Brunswick Street may be your best bet for smashing cocktails in Fitzroy, but if you're thirstier for an ale, make a beeline for the back streets. It's here you'll find one of Melbourne’s most vibing beer gardens for getting in your crafty pints under the sun. If you want to get a spot, make a booking or head here early in the week for a wickedly good fish pie and a drink or two. The parmas here also have a cult following (one of the best in Melbourne, in our books). Oh, and it's dog-friendly so you can bring your best friend along!
