Joe Jones is one of Melbourne’s most talented and experienced bartenders, having run Romeo Lane for almost a decade with Rita Ambroz.

Maurice Terzini is one of Sydney’s most talented and experienced restaurateurs, best known for Bondi’s iconic Icebergs restaurant, among many other projects.

Now the two are teaming up for Purple Pit, a basement bar paying tribute to bohemian Henry Maas, who opened Brunswick Street bar Black Cat in 1982. Terzini had his first job there, waiting tables, and later opened Caffe e Cucina on Chapel Street to acclaim.
