Quirky Wine Bar

Wine bar in Main Street Mornington with a rustic French decor.
The words "brass razu" appear to be a play on words.
In World War I, the expression "brass razoo" evolved as Australian soldiers' slang.
The expression means to have no money.
No one is really sure where the word "razoo" originated, but it appears that this wine bar's name connects with the suggestion that "razoo" may be a corruption of "sou" - the smallest French coin.
So the wine bar is not razoo but "razu"
But perhaps the name has been a little too clever.
It now implies a cheap place - not necessarily a positive concept.

French ambience
distils some luxury into
the world of wines
