MELBOURNE | Bonny is a new wine, beer, and cocktail bar in Fitzroy, that draws upon the local experience of its team to create a venue that focuses on getting the important things right. It’s owned by Shayne Dixon (Beermash) and Adam Betts (Edge Brewing Project), with the bar being managed by Josh Crawford (ex Vue de Monde, Boilermaker House, Loop Roof), and the food menu overseen by Mike Baker (Henry Sugar, Kenny Lover). The team recently invited me in to check it out.

The 60 seat venue is dark, long and narrow, with soft lighting and textured walls and exposed red brick. The long bar takes up one length of the space, and there’s an assortment of seating. High and low tables, couches, bar stools, and a bit of kerbside alfresco.

Sustainability is a key focus at Bonny. This is evident not just in the kitchen and behind the bar, but in the fit-out. Straws are made of wheat, and the use of glass, plastic and cans is kept to the absolute minimum. The faux leather couches are vegan, and local artisans Bangs Bespoke have used reclaimed messmate hardwood for the furniture and bar.

The drinks menu features a fantastic selection no matter what your tipple of choice is. There are 27 rotating taps showcasing craft beers from around the world, natural Australian Wines, unique cocktails and cold brew coffee. Ingredients used in the cocktails, like soda and tonic waters, lemonade, peach black plum hibiscus tea and stewed marmalade syrups, are all made in-house by Crawford. Try “Francis”, a combination of Australian gin, tropical malt syrup, rosemary botrytis wine, citric acid and rosemary smoke.

The grazing menu is based on Australian produce that is ethically processed and, like the food at Henry Sugar, has a modern Australian/Spanish bent. Think hibachi grilled eggplant and pork neck skewers, stuffed padron peppers, peanut, lime, and pepperberry roasted crickets. Every three months, the menu will be switched up, with an assortment of Melbourne’s best chefs and restaurateurs putting together the offering. It’s a novel idea that should keep things fresh and exciting for regulars.

Bonny is a great addition to the area, and it’s hitting all of the right notes from the start.
