Time Out Bar Awards 2015: The Winners

MELBOURNE | The Time Out Bar Awards 2015 honour the best bars in Melbourne and were held last week at Melbourne CBD Bar The Mill House. It was a night to pour libations in honour of the best that Melbourne has to offer across a range of categories. Guests were kept suitably satisfied with beers from White Rabbit, cider from The Hills Cider Company, wine from Gentleman’s Collection and Old Fashioned cocktails by Maker’s Mark.

Food during the night had a decidedly South American flavour to it thanks to Peruvian head chef Agustin Ortega. Menus were floating about, but it’s safe to assume that a good number of guests didn’t realise exactly what they were eating. Delicious bites included sweetbread, beef tongue, beef heart, kingfish and octopus.

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.
