“Two Wrongs definitely make a right”
Two Wrongs (click here) definitely make a right. This phrase related to this dive bar would be an understatement. Our dining experience was sensational.
The creative minds of Zachary Riggs and Isaac Constantine (think & Le Petit Prince) have brilliantly created fine dining at a dingy American dive bar.
The interior is adorned with an eclectic collection of Versace, Storm troopers, UV lights, graffiti vandalised renaissance artwork and garbage filled shopping trolleys creating this quirky, odd and inviting venue which is literally ‘two wrongs’.
The all man bartender line-up were extremely helpful, engaging and welcoming. Whether you are there for a culinary delight (think mouth watering pork donuts) or to quench your thirst from their extensive and impressive drinks menu (my fav was the stoned sailor).
Two Wrongs definitely hit the nail on the head with their delicious food, quality drinks and tongue in cheek hospitality.

Standout dishes for me were: the Truffle mac n cheese & mash and gravy. Although, every meal we had was extremely satisfying, carefully and meticulously created from concept to creation I have a soft spot for mac n cheese so this for me was the most memorable whilst the mash and gravy was fluffiest and lightest I have ever had.
I highly recommend you visit this venue to experience first hand, how unique and delightfully disjointed this dive bar truly is.
Two Wrongs definitely impressed. A must for Melbourne.
