HOT: Neapoli, 30 Russell Place, Melbourne

Neapoli is an all day eatery in Collins Street Melbourne that is many things to many people. By day, a cosy cafe and meeting place for nearby office workers (who particularly like the big boardroom table upstairs). By night, a sexy wine bar with interesting food to share.

HOT: Double Happiness, 21 Liverpool St, Melbourne

Ah Double Happiness. A sexy, intimate CBD laneway bar that has witnessed a few romantic rendezvous during my dating years and then became the backdrop to one of my favourite wedding photos.
