Bar Tini Is the New Laneway Bodega From the Movida Crew
Your new Hosier Lane destination for Spanish-style small bites and vermouth on tap.
December 08, 2017
From humble beginnings on Hosier Lane, Melbourne's iconic Movida has spawned a tidy collection of venues, even adding a Bali outpost to the family last year. But the team's latest project, Bar Tini, sees them sticking much closer to home — in fact, just a few steps up the lane from the original.
Transforming the space once home to long-standing laneway haunt Misty, Bar Tini is a cheery little drinking spot that takes its cues from the Spanish bodegas of yesteryear. Expect lots of warm red accents, a retro-leaning timber bar and walls lined with wine bottles.
The focus here is on fresh, clean flavours — eats and drinks to make you feel happy. A lineup of simple small bites is primed for grazing, featuring plenty of top-notch seafood and smallgoods. Nibble your way through tapas plates, cheeses, things smoked and cured, and montaditos — aka small sandwich creations featuring nifty combinations like prawn, romesco and avruga. To match, you'll find vermouth on tap, a hefty curation of imported wines and clever Spanish riffs on some of your favourite classic cocktails. Stay tuned also for an onsite bottle shop once the proper licensing comes through.
Find Bar Tini at 3-5 Hosier Lane, Melbourne, open daily from 4pm. Visit their website and Facebook page for further details.
