MoVida Next Door is a fun place to be when you just want to sit and people watch while enjoying good wine and excellent bar food. Croquettas, pulpo, pastry cigars, freshly shucked oysters served buy the very entertaining Jaime. Go there.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
