Great bar, delicious drinks and fab food. That's all you need for a night out! Throw in the curiosity created by a secret entrance and let your Lay Low Bar adventure begin.
As soon as you get access to the bar you are welcomed with a warm friendly atmosphere and a glorious long bar serving unique drinks. With an eclectic cocktail list (The Breakfast Pancake cockail!) that offers something for everybody, Mamma says you will feel like you are in the laneways of Melbourne.
Hungry? Good! Clever owners Colin and Miles have teamed up with the 'hole in the wall' team next door at The Brotherhood Yiros and Grill to give their Westie patrons plenty of platter style fare. Pull up a stool or a cosy booth, because you are going to want to stay in to test out all their signature cocktails.

You KNOW Mamma loves Shadowfax Wines for fab family dining! Well, during some months throughout the year they have a special Friday Night dining option too. These nights are perfect for date nights, catching up with friends and even some Friday night family eats too.Read More
Well this place certainly has everything Mamma loves. It's such a cosy place in the winter with its fireplace and stone walls, and then on nice days there is the great outdoor deck and HUGE expanse of grass AND the old boat & sandpit for the kiddies to play too.Read More
A new bar and restaurant has opened in Altona Meadows and Mamma says it is stylish and spacious and definitely one to check out. The menu looks great with lots of good options for brekkie, lunch and dinner!
Graze Bar and Restaurant is a family owned and is run by locals so they have a firm hand on what their neigbours are looking for in terms of food and their modern Italian style menu is designed to cater to local tastes and tums!
For the families - there is a large main dining space which is handy for prams, the service is great and there is a specific 'under 12' menu with lots of good choices - there are also highchairs for little bubs. Oh and the 'family' sized sharing sundaes are amazing...not that Mamma like to share her sundaes all that much!
Mamma's special mentions: Altona Meadows Libary and Learning Centre is around the corner and a great space to spend some time!
