Collins Quarter

We love this upscale pub at the fancy end of town – and not just for its excellent blend of 19th and 21st century style and the very summer-friendly Magnolia Courtyard. Collins is putting out some very serious food with a locally sourced bent: think sharing plates with aged jamón, corn flatbreads with pulled pork shoulder and a Black Angus Cross Scotch Fillet that has the centre of the city buzzing.

Out front you have a public bar pushing craft beers, while out the back, the Blind Alley Bar is filled with city workers talking shop and chucking back wines. Upstairs there's a cocktail bar and throughout it all, there's all the decadence you expect from venue owner Vernon Chalker – the man who brought you frilly and fancy Madame Brussels and luxe booze den Gin Palace.
