Our party of 4 enjoyed an evening here. Good service from the bar staff, comfortable seating and nice decor etc with one big but......The downstairs womens toilets were terrible, not only in disrepair - one cubicle was minus a door. It was also the only cubicle with toilet paper. Rubbish was everywhere, a huge domestic garbage bin was piled up... More

Stopped in for a drink on the way to a concert in Melbourne. Found ourselves upstairs and outside on the roof top bar. Although its quite small, there's plenty of spots to sit, order a drink and sit and chat which friends outside. Great choice of beer and cider's and not to badly priced.

Great bar, busy but very central. Great range of local beers to try and if you like cider try the rooftop cider bar for something different. We tried a scrumpy style cider - dry and delicious!

As a former resident of Melbourne I was very pleasantly surprised to notice on a recent trip that this old landmark hotel had been given a facelift. We visited on a hot summer's night in a party of 5, and were delighted with the spaciousness of the Chloe's Bar and Restaurant room on the first floor. After a cooling drink... More

We dropped by to try some decent beer on 29 Dec. There was no queue outside yet the bouncers took several minutes to let us in having looked us up and down first. For the record we all had long pants on, shirts with collars, no tattoos and our age range was 38-48. After walking in we decided to spend... More

I'm sure this is as touristy as it gets, but I still enjoyed my time here. I especially liked the rooftop bar, which had the great atmosphere and was also where they offered a wide variety of hard ciders. This place is huge with many rooms, though unfortunately you can't connect your tabs for each room. Each room has a... More

The heaving ground floor of Young and Jackson's, probably the Melbourne CBD's liveliest pub, would not lead you to expect the possibility of a quiet and pleasant dining experience upstairs. But there it is on the second floor, at Chloe's, named after the famous 1875 nude painting, sadly, of a 19 year old who soon after committed suicide because, if... More

Try getting a beer on ANZAC day at Y&Js if you've served in the military and the best you'll get is asked to leave, if they let you in at all. Sure they'll take your money before the footy crowd arrives but as soon as the footy starts all the diggers get thrown out, on ANZAC day! Most disgusting incident... More

We started by having a few drinks at this famous pub and stayed for a bar meal. The young staff were friendly and quite funny. They knew a bit about various beers and were pleasant to chat to. The bar meals were quite good and were served quickly. The price of the beer was not cheap but we knew it... More
