What do you get if you cross a European wine bar with a Japanese listening bar?

Swing by this Brunswick neighborhood wine bar for minimal intervention wines, local craft beer on tap and great coffee — and stick around for the banging soundtrack. This Weston Street spot's music edit is as considered as its food and drink offer, thanks to two custom-built, wall-mounted speakers, designed by Hobart designers Pitt & Giblin, that feed music generously into the space — which itself features walls that have been specifically designed for better acoustic treatment. The music is curated by a revolving lineup of local and (when possible) international DJs, and is not defined or limited by genre, but instead aims to champion rarity, diversity and inclusivity through tracks that might not necessarily find their way into the clubs.

The food is also a highlight here, with an evolving Mediterranean-influenced menu that showcases seasonal, local produce.
