  • Zero Fox

    Nestled in Brisbane’s affluent suburb of Tennerife, causal hole-in-the-wall bar and eatery Zero Fox is far from bourgeois. Designed by owners Lea Angeles and Shaun Fugill as a relaxed every-day watering hole with affordable options for locals, seating is spread along the long deck shaded by the adjacent London Woolstore. When they opened in 2016, they had very little experience in in bars, having previously worked at the café next door, but they knew what they liked. “Our goal was to create a casual venue for the locals – and it quickly became a well-oiled machine of non-stop smash hits,” says Lea.

  • Torquay Wine Store

    Mick and Sarah Dowling moved to Torquay with their two daughters in 2015 and have seen great change and growth – which encouraged them to act on their serious interest in wine and open the Torquay Wine Store in 2022. They modelled this venture on their favourite places to eat and drink in Melbourne, which combined a bottle shop and wine bar, where everything on the shelf was available to either take away or drink in.

  • The Sir George Hotel

    On the banks of the Murrumbidgee River, in a beautiful quiet valley at Jugiong in central New South Wales, The Sir George Hotel stands as an oasis between Sydney and Melbourne.
    While this grand old pub was established in 1854, the current Sydney-based owners – general manager and wine buyer Leonie Sassall and executive chef Anthony Davis – bought the business in 2021 and introduced new energy and vision. “We are endeavouring to make this pub a food and beverage destination in addition to offering 5-star accommodation in an award-winning garden setting,” says Sassall.

  • The End

    Providing a definitive note on inner urban cool, The End captures a funky loungeroom vibe, complete with a collection of vintage films and an oddball collection of dangling light bulbs and potted plants. Taking over a former video store on Vulture St in 2011, The End was among the early wave of Brisbane small bars to emerge and has maintained a solid following due to its lack of pretentions.

  • The Corner Dairy

    Owners Sam and Tom Hart had lived in north-western Perth suburb Doubleview for several years before opening The Corner Dairy in 2021. “We’d been wanting a place like this to go to,” says Sam. “We refitted an old tax office into what we thought would be an ideal casual, laidback spot where people could hang out and try some interesting beers and wines, and eat some delicious food without having to leave the neighbourhood.”

  • Stem Bar & Restaurant

    Taking a punt on reviving a part of western Hindley St in Adelaide with an upmarket wine bar and restaurant has paid off handsomely for a new hospitality partnership.

  • Silver Sands Beach Club

    A picture-perfect location nuzzled next to the sand that stretches into the azure Gulf St Vincent has inspired the most idyllic type of wine bar on the beach.

  • Molto Bar and Cellar

    When a charming heritage listed building in Hobart’s CBD was put up for sale in 2020, Steve and Monique Lubiana saw its potential as an elegant small bar, and set about extensive renovations that exposed beautiful sandstone and brick walls and some original 1930s terrazzo.
