York Lane is, by standards of a small bar, small. It’s virtually a hole in the wall, and when I was trying to hunt down this little gem I’ll admit I walked past it. Twice. That probably says more about my eyesight than anything, but nevertheless once you’re inside it’s a great little venue to hang out and enjoy a few post work drinks. Of course they’re open all day, so the night time tipple isn’t the only reason to come down – but it’s what we’re all really interested in so I’ll leave the day time vibe for you to suss out. I hear they do a good coffee.


There’s a good range of higher proof beverages to choose from, boutique beers such as 4Pines, White Rabbit etc., ciders and an amicable selection of wines. I took the Seppeltsfield Riesling for a spin, it’s a belter with nice a nice linier mouth feel and a succulent flavour. Being a tight space it packs out pretty quickly post 430pm so get there in a flash or you might miss out. The crowd is a good mix and the vibe on a packed Friday was cool and relaxed. They also do a mean Negroni. Cheers!
