Mornane Place, Melbourne
Melbourne does okay with the laneway bars, right? They pretty mich invented the damn things for Australia. Well, just because they’ve got the most mature bar scene in the country doesn’t mean the great openings have stopped— take a look at this new one, Arlechin, from the Grossi stable of hospitality.
Arlechin is s new late-night offering from the Grossi family, and whilst it’s ostensibly a wine bar, they’ve employed the cocktailing talents of Joe Jones (co-owner and bartender at one of our of favourite Melbourne cocktail bars, Romeo Lane) to consult on the drinks.
The cocktails take on a particularly European flavour here, with a number of them dotted with different amari and vermouths, though you’ll also see spirits like mezcal and tequila getting a run.
The best part of this? They’re open each from 5pm all the way unitl 3am.
