Centrally located on 429 Little Lonsdale Street, this gem of a bar, Father's Office, is a great meeting point for after work drinks or a casual dinner with friends.

$6 Happy Hour 5-7pm and 8-10pm Monday to Saturday, and all day Sunday, makes this bar a must go to. Balcony views to the State Library, and a bar food menu (available in the bar and balcony area), offers perfect drinking pairings like polenta chips, sliders, wings, and salt and pepper squid.

For something larger, opt to sit in the lively restaurant area and order something from the extensive Kitchen a la carte menu, with mains ranging in price from $15-$28.

If you can't decide what to have, because you want to try everything on the menu, choose the Father's Office Sampler which serves up portions of pork belly, calamari, polenta chips, crab cakes, arancini balls, and buffalo wings, each item paired with a specific condiment!

While gluten free and vegetarian options are available, disappointingly, vegetarian choices were limited to fries and using cheese as a meat replacement. I recommend the ratatouille - a field mushroom stuffed with goats cheese, spinach and a balsamic glaze. Delicious and surprisingly filling for an starter.

Drink and food specials on each night of the week, and DJs on Friday and Saturday. I'm heading back for $10 Expresso Martinis on Thursdays!
