Laneway Container Bar
Whitehart Container Bar is another addition to Melbourne's laneway culture, a popular bar constructed primarily from shipping containers in a disused carpark at the end of Whitehart Lane, off Little Bourke Street and in the very heart of the CBD.
Whitehart serves an extensive range of craft beers, cocktails and wine along with light snacks.
Whitehart serves an excellent range of craft beers, cocktails and fine wines along with light snacks and a delicious feed available from on-sight food vendors that, along with the menu, the owners plan to rotate frequently.
Spread over two levels Whitehart is decorated with its own brand of graffiti, a kaleidoscope of brilliant visual projections and two huge ferns, one Staghorn and one Elkhorn in honour of the White Hart Stag after which the bar is named.
