  • A piece of Northern California in North Fitzroy.

  • Right near Edinburgh Gardens, the Tramway is an ideal spot for post-picnic pints. It’s best known for its towering burgers, stacked high with pulled pork or nori-crusted tofu.

  • Former sommelier Campbell Burton is behind this smart store, where 200 bottles of organic, sulphur-free wine rest in temperature controlled cabinets.

  • Hit this north-side favourite for Italian-leaning pub fare and strong community vibes. When the sun is shining, the retractable roof peels back and the beer garden teems with locals seeking shade among the palms.

  • Chef Chris Terlikar is best known for smoky slabs of Texas-style barbeque. But you’ll find none of that at this charming 140-year-old former pub. Instead? An entirely gluten-free menu with tapioca flatbread, anchovy-topped potato rosti and a roaming cocktail trolley.

  • Serving the neighbourhood since 1871, this old boozer is now run by the Marquis of Lorne crew. Its pub staples are more elevated than most, from rock oysters to roast lamb rump. And there’s still plenty of old-school charm.

  • This charming neighbourhood pub changed hands in 2023, but held on to its nostalgic ’70s feel. Come for quiet pints in the front bar and an Italian-influenced menu that nods to its long history.
