Picture a mild summer's day in a sun dappled courtyard, sipping a drink and hanging out with friends. For that's what the Bureaucrat and I did at The Standard in Fitzroy. The Bureaucrat knocked back a gin and tonic and I, being the light weight that I am sipped a soda and lemon with as much nonchalance as I could muster.
The Verdict: We liked it.
The Standard is a great go-to venue which has plenty of room for crowds of friends. It's welcoming and non pretentious and has plenty of outdoor shaded area for lazy afternoons.
