Bar of the Year: The Everleigh, Melbourne

If you were seeking evidence for the ever-evolving diversification and specialisation of Australia's small-bar culture, The Everleigh would make a good Exhibit A. This is a bar for grown-ups, a bar that takes its business seriously, but does so in a way that eschews intimidation. That seriousness is focused on making sure customers have a good time through the fine-tuning of drinks, service and music with an experienced hand. It might be a meticulously curated bar but it never feels staged or pretentious. It's also a whole lot of fun, like the fantasy of a cocktail bar made real. Make ours a double. The Everleigh, Level 1, 150-156 Gertrude St, Fitzroy, Vic, (03) 9416 2229
