Wellington’s Matterhorn maestro moves to Melbourne

Here’s an opening that we’re looking forward to. One of New Zealand’s finest talents, Christian McCabe, has made the move across the ditch to Melbourne to open a bar that is a mix of drinking and dining. “After looking in many places and abandoning a project or two we have finally managed to secure a site in Carlton,” said McCabe about the new site where the former one-hat diner, Embrasse used to stand.

Honky Tonks

Probably the best news to come out of the national capital lately is that another new bar has opened, Honky Tonks. What a relief from all the other political noise. Getting straight into it, the locals seem to be wrapped with their latest addition and the venue is giving them a raft of tipples to taste while taking in the creatively cool interior. The wine list is pretty strong with some good tastes of local and international juice and the food is sure to keep you filled while you work your way through the cocktails and beers.
