Serviced by the trusty 86 tram, High Street, Northcote is an excellent place for bar hopping. The scene here kicked off years ago, and as such, the options are well established and varied. Whether you’re after a biodynamic wine at Bar Nonno, a well-made cocktail at Kitty Somerset, a warming whiskey at Buck Mulligan’s or a plain old beer in Wesley Anne’s lush back garden, Northcote has it.
