Der Raum , Melbourne
For those of you with no grasp of the Germanic tongue, Der Raum means The Room (pretty phonetic really) though the place is smaller, cosier and infinitely hipper than your average Bavarian Beerhall. Indeed, cocktails are the thing here: innovative and generally top-notch, made with fresh fruit rather than cordials and syrups. Pop down on a Thursday when the bar-tenders get experimental and willing guineau pigs are required to sample their creations. Saturdays are also a good bet when guest DJs bring a bit of Latin atmosphere to the joint. Drinks here may cost a bit more than average but expertise is always worth paying for.
