The best places in Melbourne are often small, tucked away from sight and masters of their craft, this is certainly true of our latest small bar find, Romeo Lane! It may be small, but it houses something quite wonderful – an impressive cocktail list as well as some bar food.
Looking at the menu there were plenty of cocktails to choose from and I felt I needed guidance to make my selection. Luckily the professional and passionate staff were on hand to help me out. I ended up telling them my favourite gin was sipsmith and they went off menu – suggesting a cocktail with dry sherry, lemon juice, sugar, lemon rind and of course, gin!
It was just what I was looking for, a bit more complex than a tom collins, with a balanced palette that enhanced and complemented the gin.
Romeo Lane is a charming little bar and the service was outstanding. We will have to return when we have time to sample more of their cocktails and some snacks!
