The Mitre Tavern is touted as the oldest building in Melbourne and has stood on this site since 1868. A classical Gothic facade on the outside, and low doorways, and undulating floor, inside a testement to its age.
Saturday lunchtime, COVID-19 lockdown, feeling hungry after a quick shop. Heading home I knew there was a chinese restaurant on Wills Street so I thought I’d swing by and see if it was open.
Melbourne has some really good Irish bars, and The Irish Times on Little Collins Street is no exception.
I’ve always viewed Hardware Lane between Bourke and Lonsdale Streets as a bit of a tourist trap. The restaurants and bars along this stretch are good but you’ll probably end up paying a “tourist tax” as the prices are a little on the high side… and don’t get me started on the touts!
A little while ago I was wandering down the laneway and my friend wanted to give Il Nostro Posto a try so we headed on in.
