Local spirits and Lamington jaffles. Sounds like a recipe for disaster, right? Well, maybe it isn’t. Mexico has tequila and tacos.

The Fitzroy borders touch on two of northside's biggest strips – Brunswick Street, Smith Street and Gertrude Street.

Still, there are some Fitzroy drinking stalwarts that never fail to bring the goods, from world-class cocktails to pints of craft beer.
