One of Melbourne's signature well-hidden institutions, Hairy Canary pairs cocktails with tapas in its funky perch above Little Collins Street. It’s late opening, and with a prime CBD location, so pop in for coffee or a glass of wine before a show. Share Basque-style tapas, perhaps salted cod and potato fritter or prawns with chorizo and chickpeas. Or say hands off and order your own dish of pasta, maybe with salami, ragu and chilli, or a bowl of creamy cauliflower and leek soup. Luscious desserts change with the day, with no stinting on the double cream.
