Melbourne Public is one of the most impressive spots in one of Melbourne’s newest drinking and dining secret – South Wharf. Seriously though, South Wharf is finally cropping up on the collective radars of those in and around Melbourne, and that’s probably in large part because of the high-quality bars, restaurants and cafes littered along that stretch of Yarra. Including Melbourne Public.
Melbourne Public celebrates the best of Melbourne's past and present, in true Australian pub style. It’s a cafe, dining room and bar, housed within one of those very impressive reappropriated wharf sheds. By that we mean it’s all exposed beams, and views of the Yarra, combined with modern-day boutique beers, wines and a kick-ass dining menu. In the main bar that aforementioned industrial flair is on show, with “heritage reconditioned industrial lights” hanging the beams and high ceilings.
What does “heritage reconditioned industrial lights” mean? That’s probably just a long-winded way of saying “this room looks very nice”. The open plan area lends itself - apart from after-work drinks and watching the game - to corporate and cocktail functions, as well as big birthday celebrations. The dining room is also available for functions. Melbourne Public is found on Dukes Walk, South Wharf.
For those not in the know (it’s okay), walk along the Yarra past the Melbourne Convention Centre then voila! bars and cafes aplenty. Given its proximity to Spencer Street, both Southern Cross Station and 96, 109, and 112 trams are within strolling distance.
With a great atmosphere, good service and delicious food, Melbourne Public Bar is the perfect spot for a night out or to host your next event. Visit the bar today and experience it all for yourself!
