Down a hidden laneway in Melbourne’s CBD you’ll find Handsome Bar, a new and exciting bar, offering exclusively plant-based drinks and food menu. Partnered with a moody and intimate atmosphere you will feel like you’ve been transported to a mysterious yet magical retro home.
The ambience is the perfect balance of dark and moody, enchanting and mellow, with the décor and tableware adding to the magical vibe. It allows you to relax and wind down while you sip on delicious cocktails and snack on any of the tasty options on the food menu.
The cocktail menu is innovative and creative with a variety of flavours and something for every palate. The food is entirely vegan but does not compromise on flavour, creativity or quality and compliments the drinks menu perfectly.
Everything was delicious, but the stand-out dish was the porcini truffle parfait, Pedro Jiminez & milk toast, which was full of flavour and texture. The “bone marrow” eggplant fondue was a super unique and innovative vegan dish, that you definitely wouldn’t know was vegan. Other food items include the salt & pepper vegetables with buttermilk & maple, French onion dip and the complimentary spiced popcorn which is perfect to snack on if you’re just after drinks.
Handsome Bar lives up to its name in atmosphere, aesthetics and taste. It’s definitely a hidden gem to experience if you find yourself in the city late at night or if you feel like winding down after work.
