304 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

The Black Pearl is a family-run bar that has been operating since 2002 and has since become a local institute; in 2018 they took out the best bar in Australasia.

Come the weekend it’s hard to secure a seat. But once you do you’ll be treated to a menu of perfectly crafted cocktails. There’s also a somewhat hidden bar upstairs, appropriately called The Attic.
