Housed in a former 19th-century boarding house, Catfish is just about the best place in Melbourne to drink local craft beer. The list changes weekly, all the music is on vinyl and a Philly cheesesteak joint (Sparrow’s) is wedged into the bar’s kitchen. In other words, you’ll find everything you need to turn a pit stop into an afternoon affair.

What to drink
Local beer all the way; or if you’re feeling a little worse for wear, they do an ace Bloody Mary. One of those and a cheese steak and you’re good for at least another 12 rounds.
