Climb the two flights of stairs to Ferdydurke to find a hip and lofty space. There’s Vietnamese food, gourmet hot dogs and an impressively stocked bar. Your average kind of week sees all kinds of action, from their ‘Laneway Learning’ series to collaborative art projects and live music. The old building that houses Ferdydurke has been nicely restored with exposed beams. With a well-stocked bar and cheap food, it is a firm favourite with Melbourne's cocktail crowd.
