For a long time, Lane's Edge had the location but not necessarily the polish. It was a fun, after-dark bar and restaurant with a sweet laneway position and a great little beer garden. But the food was underwhelming and there wasn't much to draw people from flashier neighbours like San Telmo, Cherry bar, Siglo and Punch Lane.

However, after undergoing an extensive refurb and top-to-bottom refresh in 2021, Lane's Edge is back. And it's looking amazing! The decor is chic and modern, the lighting is killer, and there's an incredible jungle mural on the opposite laneway.

The food has had a glow-up too, with chilli Tuscan olives, prawn spring rolls with chipotle mayo, and hefty pastrami subs pushing out the old unexciting pub grub menu. There's also an excellent wine list, focussing on regional varietals from Mornington, Margaret River and South Australia's Limestone Coast.

The end result? Boozy, brash and straight-up fun. Lane's Edge is finally delivering on its potential.
