Joe’s Shoe Store: 233 High St, Northcote 3070

If a casual drink in a cool, relaxed venue is what you’re after – Joe’s Shoe Store is the bar for you.

Long and narrow, dark and groovy are just some of things you can expect at this bar, and with the only downer being slightly pretentious staff, there isn’t much at all that is negative.

Booths line the right hand side of the bar along the wall and as you continue down and out to the beer garden, it is easy to see why this is a popular venue for locals. The beer garden is the perfect size, and with quaint chairs and tables it is the perfect area for a quiet drink with friends.

As mentioned earlier, the only real negative here are the slightly pretentious staff members that man the bar. I wasn’t drinking on this particular evening, as I was driving, and once this was made known, it was clear that I was one of their least favourite patrons in the bar that night – oh well!

I highly recommend for this venue for a relaxed catch up with friends and a casual drink. It is a good idea not to dress up too much, I was slightly overdressed when we went, but hey, I would rather be overdressed then underdressed of course!
