Like Northcote and Thornbury before it, Preston is slowly developing a thriving and eclectic drinking scene. There are no serious cocktail bars yet, but if you’re after a few beers and a game of pool, the options are good. Being that bit further from the city, bars here tend to be more spacious and relaxed than their inner city counterparts. That quality has attracted notable brewers and a rockstar winemaker in recent years, and will no doubt attract more like them. Keep an eye on Preston – it’s only going to get better from here.
