94 Club Street
First impressions: Lovely warm interior with high industrial ceilings, rustic brickwork and spacious seating.
The Chosen One: Any of the martinis ($16, choose from apple, lychee or vodka), as well as the Bubble Gum shooter – a combo of Southern Comfort, crème de banana, grenadine and milk. Bailey’s lovers should not leave without trying the Squashed Frog ($28 for two).
The Cheapskate: $12 for a full pint from a range of Archipelago draught beers.
Bite on this: The thin-crust pizza rucola e prosciutto ($28.80) is the perfect snack to share after a round (or two) of cocktails, while the spaghetti carbonara ($20.80) is rich and full of flavour.
Would you believe? Part of the BLVD group, which also runs a number of bars and restaurants in the city area, this casual bar and bistro opens up seating by the roadside, alfresco style, every Friday and Saturday.
