Our Love Story


Walk down the laneway off Tennyson Street, past the rickety gate, beside Chantal’s old milk bottle return and you’ll find us, Monica Loves.

A bar inspired by our travels, our worldly wine knowledge and the proven success of our restaurant, Mister D. Casa di Giulietta; Juliet’s Wall taking centre stage in the design aesthetic of our bar as love brings people together and we know we can do the same.


It's This Way


We’re pouring some great wines from around the world, as well as some more obscure vintages from the region. Craft beers and cocktails for those who want a break from the grape, along with some tasty bar snacks by the original Mister D.

Our drinks are poured from 3pm till late Wednesday – Saturday so come in and relax for a refreshing drink and a bite to eat.

Please get in touch with us to book your next function.
