Discover a slice of Venice in Hawthorn, minus the pesky pigeons
Evoking the style and splendour of one of the most loved cities in the world is a bold move but the people at Vaporetto Bar and Eatery know what they’re doing. From Venetian prosecco to Tuscan sangiovese and Mornington Peninsula pinot noir, local heroes mix with Italian greats to provide more than enough variety for even the biggest of wine buffs. Local craft ales from La Sirene, Coldstream and Hargreaves Hill offer a touch of class for beer lovers, while if you’re after an Aperol spritz, Negroni or Bellini, you’d be hard pressed to find a better place for one in Melbourne.
Of course, no visit to a Venetian bar is complete without food, and this place is no exception with the cicchetti (bar snack) menu offering mushroom arancini, sardines and oysters. On a Sunday afternoon there’s even a violin and guitar duo playing the standards. Bellissima!
