Take two parts Danish minimalist furniture store, add one part Italian wine and cocktail bar (subtract the sleazy old man with the handlebar moustache) and garnish with a little kitchen fare. While you’re at it, just a dash of full screen cinema and you’ve created the LongPlay recipe.
The wine list is strong, with a good selection by the glass headed by France, Italy and Spain, while the locals bring up the rear. The bar is well equipped and perfectly considered. You can't help but want an aperitif – the surroundings demand it – and a nice whiskey selection will set you up on the other end before you depart.
While you’re perched at the bar, grab some antipasto or light snacks; the marinated olives to pick and share, or asparagus au gratin and Italian-style meatballs. Take a seat at the bar and enjoy the local drinking atmosphere. This Fitzroy bar also houses a small cinema for hire, so gather a group of friends and screen one of your favourites.
