The Laneway adds a Melbourne-esque, edge to the Eagle Street bar scene, and is a nice place for drinks before or after dinner at The Euro or Urbane next door. If you don’t fancy moving far after a few Friday drinks, and are in the market for a casual and affordable dining experience, The Laneway also has a modern European food menu of bar snacks and burgers.
In fact, The Laneway vies for one of the best burgers in town, filled with the best quality ingredients and presented on a beautiful wooden board. Seriously, we’ve tried MANY burgers. This one is special. Otherwise, gourmet bar snacks like fried calamari and jamon croquettes are matched with top shelf spirits, wines and beers, with the emphasis on their sweet gin list. The cocktail list is small but creative, with a few wild concoctions that are as much an experience as they are a drink.
