Gerald Diffey at Gerald's Bar San Sebastián

Alicia Taylor

Melbourne’s Gerald’s Bar is all about discovering new, interesting wines and eating at any level you feel comfortable with, whether that’s a snack or a feast. At heart it’s a wine bar with food and great music. You’ll hear a lot of ska, soul, funk and R&B records: Jackie Mittoo, Marlena Shaw, Gil Scott-Heron, a lot of straight-ahead jazz – Miles Davis and John Coltrane – as well as a bit of Siouxsie and the Banshees thrown in. In other words, all the things Gerald Diffey likes.

To herald Gerald’s arrival in the Basque coastal town of San Sebastián, here’s a playlist of all the sounds you’re likely to find while drinking a glass of wine at the bar.

Gerald’s Bar, 386 Rathdowne St, Carlton North Vic.
