We dropped in after walking around the NGV for hours. So nice to sit at the window with a Gin & tonic and delicious chorizo croquettes and bbq prawns. Bread was also served with olive oil. Staff were friendly and super efficient. A lovely interlude

Tasty tapas, friendly bar staff and great location - good combination all 'round. We easily found some places at the bar and proceeded to order lovely tasty offerings, from croquets to soft shell crab 'burgers'. Each dish had a unique flavour and serving plate.

First time I’ve been here in years and I wasn’t disappointed. The atmosphere is pretty casual and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They’ve also tried all the dishes so if in doubt ask. Next Door still does some of the best Tapas in Melbourne....More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
