MELBOURNE | Jane Doe Bar is a small bar from Small Batch Bars (the people behind John Doe Bar), and offers an cozy, welcoming spot for drinks and conversations.
The venue is small and narrow, with plush velvet couches, red curtains, and vintage decor providing a great atmosphere to relax. Cocktails are the name of the game here, with bar manager Shannon Sanderson creating an assortment of drinks that play upon the classics. Espresso martinis on tap, featuring 42 Below vodka, coffee liquor, and cold drip coffee, are great, as are the barrel aged bottled cocktails and the rest. Try the Red Velvet, a mixture of Zubrowka vodka, French apple liqueur, pineapple juice, and an apple and raspberry shrub.
There’s a small selection of board games to play, live DJs playing chilled tunes on the weekend, and a bit of seating out the front on the footpath to enjoy if the weather’s nice.
