HOT: Auction Rooms, 103-107 Errol St, North Melbourne

Auction Rooms is a casual cafe/restaurant set inside the old WB Ellis auction house in North Melbourne. In fact, the long wooden floorboards, exposed beams, distressed brickwork and high ceilings hoisting a series of whirring fans reminded me a lot of the interior of an airy Queenslander home. It seems like the kind of place […]

HOT: Tony Wheeler, The Hive, Collins Quarter, 86A Collins St, Melbourne

This beautifully restored pub is in a quiet residential area of […]

Helpful matronly types helped me […]

The small counter has a selection of […]
