Nice Day for the Pub
Check out these great watering holes from all four points of Melbourne’s compass.
01 Great Northern Hotel
If you love sport and beer, this is your place. There are screens showing big games everywhere in this sprawling Carlton North venue, as well as a sunny beer garden and 21 different taps.
02 The Espy
After two years of uncertainty, the landmark St Kilda pub has reopened, with its band room once again filled with music.
It’s not fancy but it is fun.
03 Auburn Hotel
The eastern suburbs aren’t renowned for pubs, but this one has been operating since 1888 and retains its heritage charm. The beer garden is a drawcard.
04 Steam Packet Hotel
One of the oldest pubs in Melbourne has a reassuring atmosphere and solid reputation. Craft beer, pub grub and sport on the TVs makes it a good Williamstown choice.
