Outstanding food/beer in the center of Melbourne. An oasis for the beer lover on a street filled with VB joints. A tad on the pricey side, but worth it. When I was there, there were 5-6 special drafts on offer, including a local belgian farmhouse style (forget the brewery/name...long evening) that was vigorously and accurately described by our bartender.
The food is great, the asian fusion dishes are pretty unique, particularly for a íseriousí beer bar. Visited a few months ago with a colleague from Singapore and they were impressed with the food, which iíve found to be a solidendorsement.
P.S., better ípureí thai food at a couple of hole-in-the-wall places about 1/2 mile up the street, but the food here is well worth it.

Atmosphere is great - Plenty of people. Staff are knowledgeable and I like that they use the Clipp app for tabs. Food that we had was good - if a tad expensive for what it was. Beer list is excellent as is location. Will be back.

Pretty cool place. Pretty sophisticated and up market. Never dined here but the drinks list has always been good and the service has always been very friendly. A good place to grab a drink on a Sunday and maybe head to the rooftop bar afterwards

Nice vibe in here. But itís a little hard to tell if itís a bar a restaurant. We treated it as a bar though. Plenty of stuff on tap to choose from including a cookie colab with bridge road which was pretty cool. Some more mediocre taps but there was always a few shining lights in there. Quite suave sort of place. Service was great. The girl behind the bar knew her stuff and was very friendly too. Definitely worth visiting again

Beautiful room. Great service. Lovely food. Alwasy at least one or two things interesting on the taps, however much of it is taken up with lager that essentially all do the same job. Donít see the need to have Thunder Road and Boags and Carlton and Stella and Kirin and Budvar and Bitburger and Trumer. Selection and pricing let down and otherwise amazing venue.

Visited July 26, 2013.
Upscale sort of pretentious place. Not a beer bar really, had a decent (if nice) selection of bottles, more for booze drinkers Iíd say. Not a place Iíd go back to when there are so many other craft oriented places around.
Decent service. Didnít eat.

Atmospheric upper-level bar with a good buzz, even mid-week. A bar with good beer as opposed to a beer bar, but the selection includes some higher end options right next to ordinary macros. As the Cookie Monster would say, "...good enough for me."

Went on a Saturday night this place had an excellent atmosphere (dimmed lighting). Had a some pretty cool stuff on tap including some Birra del Borgo, Tuatara, Moylans. A little expensive but not much more than you expect.

Super weird place that seems like a beer bar, family restaurant, and internet hang out (one of the few in the city) in the middle of Chinatown, color me confused. Despite the weird vibe, best beer draft list in the city behind Local. 20 taps, around a 100 bottles of fresh new NZ beers, Euro and American. Staff was friendly and quick, not a huge beer knowledge but enough to get by. This place is worth a visit in Melbourne, especially if you donít want to go all the way to Local.

The selection has improved tremendously in the past months, and there are always interesting beers to try. Great place for local, kiwi, and american options. The staff is very friendly and interested. The food is delicious, and the space is great to relax.
