Off a side street, down an alley and then down another alley, you’ll find Bar Americano, a tiny space with no seating and only enough room for about ten to stand and one of the best bartenders in Melbourne. The space gets packed quickly, but it’s worth the wait to be able to lean on the tiny wood and copper bar, surrounded by frosted glass drinking what is somehow the best combination of vermouth and Campari you’ve ever tasted in your life.

What to drink
An Americano, of course. That or Lambert's Negroni, which is surely the same one they serve in heaven.
Try not to hang around too long if there are other people waiting. Have an aperitivo and then move on to any of the other fantastic bars within walking distance.
