Black Market pop-up bar

A new pop-up bar is now open on Smith Street. It’s called Black Market, featuring food by Raph Rashid of Beatbox Kitchen, Taco Truck and All Day Donuts. The wine list is – if you didn’t see this coming – by your friendly neighbourhood Blackhearts and Sparrows.

Raph’s doing fried chicken sandwiches with slaw, mayo and smoked maple; eggplant sandwiches with avocado, chipotle mayo, parmesan and pickles; tacos (of course); gourmet crackers, shaker fries and chicken wings.

We’re doing a short, focussed, regularly updated drinks list with an emphasis on great value and interesting wine. Things like a pétillant naturel sparkling by Yangarra; a wonderfully mineral Cattaratto by Marco de Bartoli and meaty, chocolatey Shiraz by Tom Rogers. You can even get beer by Mornington and Bridge Road breweries.

It’ll be open till the end of the year so come down for some nice booze, fried food and sweet tunes. Keep an eye on their social media for upcoming events such as Sunday daytimes featuring coffee by Everyday Coffee, Bloody Marys, Prosecco, breakfast rolls and DJs.
