Translating to 'underneath' in French, Dessous is a basement bar tucked under Flinders Lane. Serving wine-friendly food, you can come for snacks or sit down to a chef’s menu.
Pork katsu sandos, roast duck, lobster doughnuts, or crab noodles with nori and XO sauce could be on the menu when you visit.
The bar can handle everything from classic cocktails to creative and highly seasonal drinks, while the wine list numbers more than 100 bottles. There's an emphasis on biodynamic and sustainable producers, and lesser-known varieties and regions, so you're bound to try something you've never had before.
The look is glamorous yet moody, with low lights, green marble, black lacquered tables, dark floral wallpaper and vintage objects scattered around. And there are plenty of hidden nooks perfect for whiling away a couple of hours – or even the whole night.
