Leave the Kings Cross train station, turning left on Darlinghurst. Walk past the hookers and the drunks, don’t accept the offer of a private show. When you get to the fountain at the end of the road, walk through the park, step over the junkies, ignore the garish frontage of Maggies and slip gracefully between the curtained entrance to Velluto.
This subtle, cozy bolthole serves an impressive array of Champange, from NV to cuvée de prestige, should you have money to spend on such wonderful things.
Warm, friendly and unobtrusive service, coupled with a good knowledge of their products ensures a quite special experience.
I had a glass of the Brini Sebastian Shiraz 2005 which lived up admirably to its decadent billing.
I’ll definitely be going back soon.
