Great to visit after work. The staff are great here and I really like their rooftop cider bar. They have some really good options. Can't wait to return.

This pub has history in spades. I enjoy leading visitors upstairs to see the famous late-nineteenth century painting "Chloe". And I've also found the downstairs eating zone quite OK for a meal and drink. At night the area around Flinders Street station and Y and J's becomes very congested with groups of young people who've been drinking etc, so I... More

Very cool looking pub with a lot of character and history - It has been restored beautifully. Great selection of drinks and beer on tap and if you get there in the afternoon make the effort to get up top to the rooftop bar (not too many shady spots to get out of the 30 degree heat though!). We came... More

Live band, great selection of beer and plenty of room to dance, sit or stand, take your pick. There is a rooftop 'cidar bar' that is essentially a smokers area, but that's fine if that's you thing. Inside the music was a mix between DJ tunes of your standard Melbourne dance floor variety and a live band that happily took... More

It was a Friday night, and a band was playing. Excellent! The place was full of youngsters, but us oap's were made to feel welcome, and soon we were bopping along with the rest of them! A great atmosphere. Upstairs is "Chloes Bar" where a famous painting is displayed in the restaurant. A must see.
