6. Sylvan Post, Forest Hill
Antic pub meets themed bar at Sylvan Post, named after the post office this building once was. In the front you can scoff sharing plates of whitebait and heritage beets, on kitsch 1960s furniture. Out back is where it gets really interesting though; arrive early enough and you can nab one of the old post office vaults — essentially a private party room for you and your chums.
Don’t forget to admire the wallpaper, made from hundreds of stamps.
