This CBD wine bar is perfect for afternoon drinks and lunchtime nibbles

Backing onto a cobbled laneway, with a mamma’s-kitchen Italian menu written in hand on the green tiled walls, this city wine bar could easily be an enoteca in the shadow of the Colosseum. Melbourne is good with wine bars like that: authentic, delicious, no-frills. Fun fact: the site for Kirk’s was once home to Kirk’s Bazaar, a horse-trading pavilion built in 1840, only now they trade in semillion not stallions.

The venue was crafted by the dream team behind the European, City Wine Shop and Spring Street Grocer and they’ve kept faith with those venue’s much-loved rustic fare, featuring house favourites like steak tartare, caprese salad, niçoise salad, and the best charcuterie in the CBD. Please try the rabbit and duck terrine. You also want to order a glass of the La Ferme St grenache syrah, which is a deep and opaque red that’s rich and full bodied.
