The Rising Sun Hotel

The Rising Sun Hotel is an immensely popular South Melbourne institution, a charming corner pub situated on a tree-line street. It’s the sort of place that exudes a tangible atmosphere of friendly neighbourhood good vibes. Call it a Cheers vibe, but more quintessentially Australian and with less Ted Danson.The “Riser”, as it’s affectionately known, is part of the fabric of the South Melbourne landscape; even if you’re not a local, you’ll feel like you’re hanging out with old friends. As such, the local watering hole is pretty popular with functions (as well as casual drinks after work).Within the historic and sophisticated dining room, celebrate a milestone birthday or event alongside family and friends, over some stellar pub favourites. For something a little larger however, the Rising Sun Hotel boasts a versatile function room, easily adaptable for corporate events or private parties.The Rising Sun Hotel is perched on the corner of Raglan and Eastern Streets in South Melbourne - the Moray Street end. The number 1 tram line runs nearby, and the popular pub is a short trip away from the city, Albert Park, and the rest of the bay’s goings-on.
