This bottle shop, bar and restaurant is an early fixture of Con Christopoulos’ culinary behemoth and a haven for CBD-based wine lovers. Snatch a table on the terrace to bask in the sunny Spring Street vibes, with a glass of your fave varietal and a special dish of the day. And if you're feeling a bit bougie, you can spoil yourself with oysters, caviar with blinis and grilled ox tongue with escargots. Oh, and it's a little known secret that the gnocchi pomodoro with mozzarella is one of the best in Melbourne.
There’s something irresistible about dining or drinking outside, catching up with friends while soaking up fresh air and sunshine. While picnics fit the bill on warmer days, the hassle of flies, untimely gusts of wind and lugging blankets and baskets around aren’t always the most fun. So opt for a venue instead – one with a nice alfresco dining area fit with all the frills and no fuss.
As the weather warms (or even if it doesn’t!), these alfresco dining spots let you enjoy the outdoors in comfort.
