306 Chopper Lane, Collingwood

Above Board is one of a kind.

There’s no back bar lined with bottles, in fact aside from the wooden bar, there’s hardly anything to be seen at all. And there are only 12 seats; absolutely no standing allowed.

And yet, Above Board been recognised as one of the top 100 bars in the world.

To find this gem, head past Beer Mash, down Chopper Lane and up the stairs.

There’s a no booking policy, so best not to come with a large group.
