About City Wine Shop

The City Wine Shop is a bottle shop, wine bar and Bistrot in an iconic Melbourne venue perched on Spring St. It offers a wide range of local and imported wines at all prices and a European-influenced food menu.

When owners Josh Brisbane and Con Christopoulos opened the doors of the City Wine Shop in 2004, it was one of the first of its kind in Melbourne. Adopting the European ‘enoteca’ style of dining, being both a bottle shop and wine bar. Offering bottle shop prices, plus $20 corkage to drink in.

In recent years we teamed up with our sibling restaurant next door, The European to offer an amalgamation of menus with City Wine Shop classics like the chicken schnitzel and polenta chips or European classic, spaghetti marinara. Our food also comes with a range of seasonal dishes inspired by European cuisine.

Our staff are knowledgeable and passionate and offer a friendly and welcoming service in a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Bask in the sunshine on Spring St, escape Melbourne’s ever-changing weather indoors or swing past and pick up a bottle on your way home; we look forward to seeing you.
