Plus 5 is a stylish bar serving cocktails and pizza in Melbourne

This stylish modern South Wharf lounge specialises in cocktails, tapas and pizza. These are all good things in our book. Plus 5 has a striking white and blue tiled exterior with red leather chesterfields and table with high stools at which you can perch. It’s a light, airy venue, pleasant on a summer’s evening, sun streaming through the windows. The cocktail menu features a list of signature cocktails as well as a range of classics. Try the South Wharf Side, a mix of quince infused Beefeater Gin with lime and mint, the Baya Cooler, a blend of  bsolut Vodka, Red Wine, blackberries and egg white, or their twist on the Sazerac, a mix of Rye Whiskey stirred with Solerno Blood Orange Liquor and Xocolatl Mole Bitters. Their Breakfast martini, which pairs Beefeater Gin with Cointreau, lemon juice and orange marmalade, is also a winner. There’s a decent range of wines and beers available too and the food menu is a mix of small plates plus pizzas (go for the Agnello, topped with slow cooked lamb shoulder, red onion jam, crumbled feta and herb salsa). They also offer a Nutella pizza for dessert.
