MELBOURNE | Ferdydurke, the bar not the 1937 novel by Polish writer Witold Gombrowicz, is one of those fantastic Melbourne laneway bars. Run by the same people behind Section 8 and B.East, Ferdydurke is located up an unassuming few flights of stairs and rewards those who find it.

The loftesque space is eclectic and simple, with lots of brick and exposed beams and the drinks list features a focused but quality range of cocktails, beers and wines. We particularly like the descriptions of some of the cocktails. Take the Señor Martinez for example, which is descriped as “The story of Señor Martinez, ancestor of the martini. Who takes an unexpected journey to Oaxaca and falls in love with a smoking Mexican. An amorous marriage of Mezcal and Antica Formula is witnessed by the savory ‘best man’ Celery Bitters and luscious ‘Bridesmaid’ Orange Bitters. Please, raise a toast to the lovely couple.” Thankfully, it’s not just style over substance and the cocktails are very tasty.

Bar snacks are more than just an afterthought too, with a solid selection of burgers, hot dogs and cheese melt sandwiches, although we do miss some of the tasty Vietnamese options that used to grace the menu. The Yetta’s – a Brooklyn meatball slider with tomato and vodka glaze, beer cheese sauce and house pickles is particularly tasty, as is the truffle mac & cheese with bacon crumbs.

There’s an eclectic array of DJs playing all kinds of music most nights and, combined with everything else that Ferdydurke gets right, time spent here is always a good idea.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
