Cribb Street Social
This slick bar and eatery is focused on outdoor dining, with a grassy area out the front where guests can lay on bean bags and picnic. An outdoor undercover area provides respite from the sun.
Inside, shopfitter Open Projects has created a space of natural wood and copper, broken up with splashes of green. A wooden goat head installation on the wall pays tribute to the bar’s partnership with Mountain Goat Brewery, which features heavily on the drinks menu.
There are 14 taps to choose from. Nine are beers from Mountain Goat, Scottish craft brewery Innis & Gunn, and the owners’ very own Danger Brewing Co. There are also two spritz taps, one ginger beer, one cider and one house-made cocktail. Away from the taps there is a cocktail menu and more than 60 bottled beers.
Choose-your-own charcuterie is a major focus at Cribb Street Social, with more than 10 meats and 12 cheeses to pick from. There is also a Mediterranean-inspired share-style menu, with lunch options such as a brisket and crispy bacon burger and grilled whole lemon sole, and wild boar saddle for dinner.
The venue is serving breakfast daily, with coffee coming from Melbourne’s Locale Coffee Roasters.
