Every so often, a bar comes along that makes you want to switch sides ... of the river. The Woods of Windsor, a hip drinking hole from the team behind nearby Yellow Bird, would drag even the most devoted northsider across the Yarra. It channels vintage glamour with a gramophone, taxidermied creatures and graceful lamps punctuating the narrow space. Upstairs feels more bistro than bar. There's a choice of 50 single malts and cocktails that hark back to the Golden Era, including a blushing-pink Clover Club and refined French 75. The wine list offers a hand-picked selection of Austrian riesling, steely chablis and notable locals.
There are plenty of good booze-related reasons to hole up here when it's cold outside, but the great service and hospitable attitude will further warm your cockles.
