Lay Low

Finding this hidden neighbourhood cocktail bar — which also serves delicious Greek snacks — is half the fun.

Industrial chic meets neighbourhood comfort for this hip, friendly Seddon local serving inventive cocktails and Greek street food.

Lay Low's owners and staff all live in the surrounding suburbs and the for-locals, by-locals vibe really shines. This collaborative spirit extends to bringing in the team from The Brotherhood Yiros to create seasonal food menus featuring dishes such as kolokithokeftedes — zucchini, feta and ricotta fritters served with tzatziki — and traditional yiros wraps with fillings like chicken, lamb or zucchini.

Cocktails are a standout here, with highlights such as the Slow, Eh — an alluring blend of two gins, with a spiced red wine and orange cordial — or the wonderfully named Umami Issues, featuring smoked spiced rum, sherry, tomato, worcestershire and tabasco.

If you're not feeling a cocktail, check out the short but diverse wine list, or grab a local tap beer from the likes of Hop Nation.
