Habitat is a slice of New York cool on the still-grungy Smith Street. It’s this kind of personality that makes us love Smith Street - one minute you’re at a dive bar wondering what’s making your feet stick to the ground, and the next minute you’re in the sleek, urbane cocktail lounge surrounded by illuminated photos of moths.Habitat of course, is of the sleek, urbane variety. It’s a cosy, dimly lit space with high, high ceilings. Flattering lighting, a cocktail list to die for, spots for leaning, or sitting (either options conducive to intimate conversations) - these are all things that Habitat can boast it possesses.This relatively new addition to Smith Street falls under the category of bar that one might say is “good for dates” and “good for asserting your coolness to co-workers” or “good for general awesome good time drinking”.Habitat is found on on Smith Street, Fitzroy - the Gertrude Street end. You know the end - the one with ALL the attractive bars. Of course, the 86 tram runs by regularly and you’ll be in prime position for a wander over to Brunswick Street.
Fitzroy’s LuWow is a great many things. Part cocktail bar, part live music venue, part rockin’ d-floor. Mostly though, it’s a tropical tiki wonderland. That’s putting it lightly - bamboo, tropical print, headdresses, barrels, flowers and vines abound, as do crazy good times. First things first - walking into LuWow one finds the cocktail bar. There’s booths and seating, but it fills up quickly, especially on the weekend. The cocktails here are mostly of the tropical variety, with little plastic bugs and animals decorating each OTT looking drink. There’s also an impressive array of rum available, as well as all the usual suspects. Out the back though is where the true party happens. There’s a dance floor, overlooked by a stage often filled with a rockabilly/dance hall/60s revival/garage band, getting the boogie going. And there are go-go dancers. Yes, go-go dancers. When there’s no band on, DJs spin old-school party-starting tunes. LuWOW is definitely one of the most exciting and unique places to hit the party zone on a night out. It also works as a kick-ass function venue. The LuWow is found in the heart of Fitzroy on Johnston Street, between Brunswick and Nicholson. You can’t miss it, it’s large and tropical, even from the outside. The 96 and 112 trams will get you within stumbling distance.
Los Barbudos is one of the newer additions to Smith Street, and it’s worthy of throwing one’s baseball cap into the air in victory, with a yell of “¡Muy bien!”. Oh, yeah. This is a bar homage and alcohol-written love letter to Cuba, and to “Los Barbudos” … or “the bearded ones”. Seems appropriate, for the corner of Smith and Gertrude streets. Firstly, the whole Cuba thing. Isn’t it refreshing? Seriously, there’s only so many “New York” or “speakeasy-inspired” or “shiny pub” establishments one can stand. #firstworldproblem perhaps, but come on - this is a pretty great change of pace. The walls are covered in bearded revolutionaries, some playing baseball. There’s definitely a running theme of “baseball” and “revolutionaries” and “beards” throughout Los Barbudos. A good thing, a very good thing. There’s definitely a Cuban theme in the drinks also, with a couple of Cuban beers available, as well as some Cuban cocktails. This place is badass. A badass sense of style, theme, authenticity, and beards. Los Barbudos is found on Smith Street, near the corner of Gertrude Street. So it’s right next to its hermano, Mr Wow’s Emporium.
Cider House knows their cider. There’s lots of cider. Which is what you’d expect, with a name like “CIDER HOUSE”. Being the “first venue in Australia seriously dedicated to cider” there really isn't any time to waste, rather much cider to be consumed (and sliders to be consumed alongside it).If you wanted evidence of how much the Cider House loves cider (apart from the name which speaks for itself), then one only has to look at the bar - there are 22 craft ciders and beers on tap. Then, there are an additional 45 varieties by the bottle. There’s also a slew of wine, spirits and cocktails but frankly when there’s that much cider available, you might as well try your darndest to taste as much as you can.With exposed brick walls, pot plants and comfy couches, Cider House is pretty much the quintessential “Fitzroy warehouse-chic quirky delicious hangout”. Which is absolutely fine with us.Cider House is found on Brunswick Street, on the corner of Leicester. There’s a tram line pretty much right in front of it - the 112. The city is a very short drive away.
The Everleigh is one of Melbourne's most well-loved, and most oft-awarded cocktail bars. That's a big statement, in a city regarded as one that knows its way around a cocktail, and one that knows how to have a good time - but it’s also an accurate one.The main elegant speakeasy-style bar is a haven for the mixology nerd, boasting an extensive menu coupled with incredibly knowledgeable staff. Those who stare at a list of spirits with a blank look and racing pulse though, need not fret; warm smiles and wise suggestions point you in the right direction.Next door to The Everleigh one finds the Elk Room, the original bar's younger sibling. While certainly cut from the same sophisticated cloth as The Everleigh, the Elk Room is rather more English gentleman or officer's lounge room than speakeasy bar, with booths replaced by sofas and dark corners. There are conspicuously more elk on the walls than over at The Everleigh, but the younger sibling bears the same impeccable menu behind the bar.The Everleigh is found along Gertrude Street, near the corner of Napier Street, up a flight of stairs. That's along the 86 tram line, and is a mere stone's throw from the city, as well as Brunswick Street's nightlife.

Alchemy - that’s potion-making, right? Potion-making, and forays into attempts to turn metal into gold. With that in mind, it’ll be little to no surprise to learn that The Alchemist Bar knows its way around a more modern type of alchemy - cocktails. Mixology!Called “potions,” the drink menu at the bar includes a full lineup of the classic cocktails, more modern concoctions, and signature inventions. While the drinks are “potions”, and the food is “solids”, don’t expect The Alchemist Bar to be gimmicky, or the type of bar that takes their theme over the precipice “too much”.Inside, The Alchemist Bar is flatteringly lit, strewn with candles and slightly decadent vibes. Romantic dates or groups of friends ready for a night of celebration can perch on chaise lounges, couches, and other velvet-covered spots for their behinds - The Alchemist can accommodate small, intimate groups as well as larger events of up to 120 guests.The Alchemist is located on Brunswick Street in Fitzroy, so public transport is readily available.
Looking like a French cellar (or what one might imagine a French cellar filled with diners might look like), Gertrude Street Enoteca is first and foremost all about wine. Filled with wine, tables, a bar and more wine, it’s remarkable that this small space doesn’t feel cramped. Instead, it feels just like the kitchen of the foodie, wine aficionado friend you’d do anything to have.Given its address and automatic Gertrude-cool factor, this venue could have run the risk of descending into snootiness. Thankfully, there’s nothing vaguely resembling that to endure. Rather, staff are informative and helpful to those feeling a little daunted by the lengthy wine list. For those in the wine know, it’s a veritable grape-wonderland to explore and slowly drink through with a date, by oneself, or with a small group of friends. As far as the menu goes, it’s a succinct yet sumptuous one rooted in local produce, and can be enjoyed well into the late hours of night. Gertrude Street Enoteca is located on - big surprise here - Gertrude Street, just before Smith Street. It’s within walking distance of the top end of the CBD, otherwise the 86 tram will take you right to the door.
