"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle."

I’m in Melbourne (Australia) for 2 days of business every 2 weeks, & each visit I discover another “gem”.
Open for a little less than a year, the bar takes its inspiration from the prohibition-era “American Bars” catering to Americans travelling to Europe to sip some of the banned sweet stuff. It’s an all-day affair that begins with strictly no-milk coffees knocked back Italian-style at the bar, continues with food offerings such as panino throughout the day and moves into the evening with apertivo-style drinks, prepared by knowledgeable bartenders.
The simplicity of Bar Americano is both what sets it apart and what makes it so great. It’s a tiny little nook tucked away in a quiet corner of the city with little more than a few stools and not much standing room.
