Runner Up, Collingwood

MELBOURNE | Runner Up is a new Collingwood rooftop bar in the Collingwood Yards arts precinct and community space. It’s from the people behind Colour Club, Mildlife, and Confetti Studio.

Housed on what was the former TAFE caretaker’s residence, Runner Up features an indoor and outdoor space, with view that are slowly being built out by nearby developments, but still nice nonetheless. It’s super casual, and attracts a youthful, creative crowd.

For drinks, there’s a one pager of Australian and Italian white, red, orange, rose and sparkling wines, a few local beers on tap and in cans, and a small cocktail list with an Italian influence. Spritzes, aperetivos, and the like. You can also order classic cocktails if you like. It’s all designed to be delicious and almost all keenly priced.

If you’re hungry, it’s snacks like tinned fish, dolmades and Chappy’s Chips. There’s plans to do food pop-ups in the courtyard down the line, once the bar has settled in.

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.
