It’s Friday night. Half your mates want to go for beers in a pub, but the others fancy cocktails in a sexy design-bar – if only you could do both at once. Well, now you can (did you see this coming?). South Melbourne owner/operator Steve Vallas’ new venue, Honey, consists of a modern, stylish pub at ground level and a swish bar up top. Good design is clearly close to Steve’s heart; both parts of the venue look great, with quirky yet clean lines, some excellent graffiti-style wall art and an impressive marble-topped bar with art deco leanings downstairs. Up in the bar the theme continues but along more sophisticated, intimate lines. Tapas, cocktails, wine and beer are all on offer, as is an elevated balcony for smokers.
