OSKA JARVIS-WHITE, THE EVERLEIGH
Oska Jarvis-white was already on our radar from his work at Howler and EDV. This year he has grabbed our attention at the always-excellent Everleigh. lvl 1, 150-156 Gertrude St, Fitzroy 3065. 03 9616 2229. www.theeverleigh.com.
ORLANDO MARZO, LÛMÉ
Marzo M elevates the art of beverage matches by putting as much care into non-alcoholic pairings as he does cocktails. 226 Coventry St, South Melbourne 3205. 03 9690 0185. restaurantlume.com.
NICK TESAR, BAR LIBERTY
Tesar is probably the busiest man in the bar scene. Not only is he pouring, stirring and serving at Bar Liberty, but he is making and distributing Marionette Cassis in his spare time. 234 Johnston St, Fitzroy 3065. barliberty.com.
