We believe strongly in the idea that wine should taste like fruit and minerals instead of oak and alcohol. The wines we serve should reflect with great clarity the soil from which they were grown, and the four seasons that passed through that vineyard during a specific vintage.
We serve a constantly changing twenty wines by-the-glass, or you can open any bottle straight off the shelf. We don't have a kitchen, but if you're hungry we do have some creative ways of feeding you.
Great wine is for everyone, and everyone is welcome. See you soon at the Cellars!
The wine list is expertly curated and seasonal cocktails are a nod to the flavours of Vietnam. Swing by from 5 pm for happy hour till 6 pm.
All produce is sourced from the market and local farms.
We cook with soul and integrity and instinct, menus are created on a whim with whatever we feel is the best produce of the season.
$75pp Set Menu only

Set within an original terrace house built in 1895, Shadowboxer is a relaxed yet refined space with a sunny two tiered terrace out front, and two dining spaces inside with banquette seating.
Awarded One Hat by the prestigious Good Food Guide 2023, Lona Misa’s Latin fare and bistro dining collide against the norms of the classical medley you know of vegan and vegetarian dining. Think of dishes like Brazilian steafood stew Moqueca, roasted padron & manchego croquetas, or pastor mushrooms grilled over charcoals on Josper with corn puree, fermented pineapple & chilli.

How about the Larry Bird of pubs? Remember Bird? White guy, no hops, limited athleticism; but three rings, 12 x an all star, 3 x NBA MVP and a member of Dream Team I on the back of good solid fundamentals. And that’s our commitment to you. Simple things done really well. Larry Bird style. Or as the great man put it “first master the fundamentals”.
The fundamentals of a good pub experience – crisp cold beer, served off a meticulously maintained system into a clean glass; a wine range that’s interesting and not intimidating; food that’s hot, looks good and tastes great; a team who works fast and smile at the same time, welcoming you to the venue like they would their home.
That’s our commitment. Hold us to it. If we don’t provide you a Larry Bird experience, let us know. Cheers, Alfie x
