Have a look at this new bar, Ugly Duckling


The Ugly Duckling

238 Swan Street, Richmond

Nick Selvadurai has proved to be a formidable opponent to compete against in cocktail competitions around the country. That is to say, his comp skills are pretty solid— not that he’s not a nice person (he’s a great guy).

And now, you’ll be able to find him at home behind the bar of this new Melbourne venue, The Ugly Duckling.

There’s a focus on wine here at this bar, with a healthy array of wines available by the glass (and of course even more by the bottle) and we’d be more than happy to work our way through the champagne list (Egly-Ouriet makes a welcome appearance) but it’s the cocktails we’re interested in.

Featuring an emphasis on seasonal cocktails (the Pinahellarita sees blanco tequila, white creme de cacao, and pineapple and jalapeno jam shaken up with egg white, pineapple and lime) there’s also a section of classic cocktails that reads like a curated list of the best that the world of classic drinks has to offer.
