The city's love affair with American barbecue shows no signs of cooling off. Our expectations on how good a bar snack can be keep getting raised and met. And our appetite for firewater has meant that no bar is complete without the inviting amber glow of a whisky collection front and centre. In fact, our enthusiasm for a stiff drink has led us to challenge the weather gods with even more rooftop bars. Let's raise a glass to this incredible city, the ace bartenders who make us feel welcome and the drinks that keep us coming back time again. It's what makes Melbourne the nation's most fun place to be after dark.
