Taking up residence in a heritage listed building in Richmond’s Swan Street, designed to be a natural extension of the owners’ home, The Ugly Duckling is a venue entirely for the locals. And with an emphasis on local and internationally sourced wines, curated cocktail selections and seasonal bar snacks including pork and sage terrine and rotating salumi boards, the bar has truly found it’s place in the neighbourhood. The space is quintessential Melbourne; sleek but atmospheric with a moody entrance leading to a light-filled rear seating area complete with a glass atrium – remnants of the building’s original incarnation. Open seven days a week with friendly staff who make you feel right at home: welcome to your new go-to watering hole.

Viewing Michael Zagaris’ photographic oeuvre is like stumbling upon a box of rare records at a neighbourhood garage sale. His work, much of which has remained unseen until now, captures some of the most influential musicians of our time including the likes of Bob Dylan, Blondie, the Sex Pistols, Eric Clapton, Lou Reed, Patti Smith and more. It was the 70s and, for Zagaris, San Francisco was the place to be. Billed as one of the last great unseen rock archives, Michael Zagaris: Total Excess is now on view at New York’s Milk Gallery through December 18.

Here, the model sisters take RUSSH to the local L.A. hangouts that get their tick of approval.
