Port of Call – Melbourne
Port of Call is new small bar from the guys behind Melbourne’s Collection Bar.
Located on Franklin Street in the Melbourne CBD, Port of Cal pays “homage to the discovery of the new world through the pursuit of spice.” To that end there will be plenty of sugarcane spirits, and an “island inspired BBQ”. Think charcoal grilled jerk chicken, and you’re on the right track.
Beverage-wise, Port of Call has some of the tastiest rum-based cocktails in Melbourne, along with a small selection of craft beer, wine and dark spirits.
They’ve also got a hydroponic set up, for the tropical fruits and chilli they’re growing in-house, and a forest canopy above their downstairs drink kitchen. There is also jungle courtyard space, and then upstairs offers up more of an ‘officer and a gentleman’ vibe with a sit down, leather-bound cocktailing experience — provided you can find the secret entrance.
Thanks to the crew from Australian Bartender for the heads up!
