This wine bar is the pride of Portside
The original Harry and Frankie (there’s also one in Fitzroy now) nails neighbourhood wine bar like few others, providing a relaxing spot perfect for a casual glass on the way home. The wide space is canopied by a curved, cork-inlayed ceiling decorated with grape vine silhouettes. Super-friendly staff offer on-the-money wine recommendations and make solo expeditions feel as convivial as hanging out with mates.
The house white on tap by Arfion sees pinot grigio and fiano combine for a surprisingly textural and complex drop at $8 a glass, while crisp duck ribs come piled high for sharing and pair perfectly with the recommended Toscana. There are craft beers, interesting single malts, sherries and a broad selection of European cider. This is a bottle shop too, so it’s all available to carry out, each handwritten pricetag a symbol of the care they put into everything.
