Daylight saving is over, but that doesn’t mean that your evening drink nights need to end too. While rosé in the sun is delightful, a complex red in cosy candle-lit bar will give you the tingles.

Here’s a pick of 5 moody spots in the Chapel Street Precinct to meet friends, ease into a tinder date, or even sink into your own company.

Neither a jungle or filled with boys, this spot hidden behind a freezer door in Windsor is moody as hell. Small, tiki inspired and dark enough to need to squint when going through the drinks menu – it’s exactly where you should head on a misty evening. Get yourself a whiskey, park up on a comfy chair & sip your way to sweet content.

Like wine? Neptune has all of the wine. No matter which way you spin (tampered with or not), you’ll find vino that speaks to your soul. While you’re there, make sure you get a few tasting plates too. There are few things in life as good as red wine and nduja jaffles. You can thank us for this tip later.

White Oaks is a teeny American themed bar parked up on Greville Street where, as the rumour goes, the imported beer is known to cure Winteritice. Don’t believe us? Visit on a drizzly night, just after sunset when the bar is aglow in amber and the aroma of jumbo has filled the space. You won’t deny the healing quality of beer & White Oaks Saloon.

From Oriental Tea House, follow the softly glowing neon lights up a flight of bending stairs to Zhou Zhou bar. When you get there, take your pick from a list of Japanese inspired cocktails for the ideal way to spend a weekday evening. If you arrive early, you may make it in time for happy hour, which as the name suggests, is always a good time. Either way, pop yourself up by the window, and look down as life on Chapel Street goes by slowly below.

455 Chapel St, South Yarra

zhou zhou Chapel Street Precinct

Dark? Yes. Moody? Yes. Filled with attitude? Heck yes. If there’s a way to ease into cold nights it’s with a tinnie in one hand, and a burger in the other. Great for a weeknight, or weekend – but always best when surrounded by people you like.
