Dawn on Spencer
Laneway bar Dawn on Spencer is the slick bar sibling to Leonard’s Bar & Bistro on Mary Street. Accessible via Spencer Lane, Dawn plucks inspiration from the French Riviera, with an interior aesthetic boasting blues, greens and white marble. A window overlooking the laneway adds natural light to the space throughout the day, but guests can also opt for alfresco sipping in the laneway space itself, which boasts a colourful mural adorning a feature wall. Dawn’s food menu is perfect for light snacking, with small plates like pork rillettes, dusted and fried organic tofu, fried calamari with saltbush and mountain pepper, and crispy fried chicken with Thai dipping sauce pairing perfectly with Dawn’s range of bright, effervescent cocktails – many of which are imbued with citrus, figs and olives for a punchy European twist.
