Monty's Bar

The North Fitzroy favourite keeping things simple.

Sitting down to enjoy a drink is one the simplest pleasures there is. You need the right beverage, a great space and good company, of course, but that's an easy-to-follow recipe. Monty's Bar in North Fitzroy has taken the idea to heart, with the laidback St George's Road joint all about keeping things straightforward. The star here: the experience of knocking back beverages and having a great time with your mates.

Inside, you can opt for a booth beneath a gloriously 80s-style wine and fruit still life picture, or perch yourself on a stool at the bar. Outside, a brick-heavy courtyard, shady umbrellas and plenty of greenery await. Whichever you choose, you'll be steeped in a cruisy mood.

And while the drinks list suits the pared-back vibe — think: spritzes, a handful of classic cocktails, two types of tinnies and beer on tap — fantastic things clearly come in small packages. Plus, food-wise, five kinds of pizza will tempt your tastebuds.
