Experience tank beer on tap

Apart from stocking all your expected favourites behind the bar, The Pub gives you the chance to enjoy brewery fresh Carlton Draught Tank Beer. Tasting unlike any other beer, this unpasteurised and deliciously smooth draught is the perfect accompaniment to your sports-watching experience.

This new brew has already given fresh meaning to the words “meet me at The Pub”, making this venue one of the most popular after-work spots for those working in Melbourne CBD. With tank beer on tap and all your favourite sport broadcasted live, The Pub is truly one of the best sports bars Melbourne has to offer.
 

Enjoy mouth-watering $20 pub specials

If an Aussie pub isn’t serving pub specials, is it really an Aussie pub? From Wednesday to Sunday, The Pub offers $20 specials on classics like tender chicken parma, juicy striploin steak, and crunchy fish and chips.

These great-value specials will satisfy your tastebuds and fuel you for a day or evening of thrilling live sports action. Take a look at The Pub’s menu to see the full list of specials, plus a range of burgers, share plates, sweets and more.
