This slick bar adjacent to beloved Italian fine dining restaurant Café Di Stasio—which is wedged into a stretch of backpacker venues in St. Kilda—is home to one of the deepest wine lists in the city. Manned by young Italian waiters in crisp white tuxedos, their tattoos poking out from under their sleeves, this is where you go to drink exceptionally well without having to go all out on dinner. In addition to the wine list, bar snacks and cocktails are simple, classic and well-executed.

What to drink
