After work drinks, classic pub grub and the spot to meet in big groups all in the one place, you’ll find it all the World Trade Centre Wharf Hotel.
Sitting on the banks of the Yarra River, city-side, this versatile bar and eatery ticks all boxes for casual drinks.
Pull up a seat outside and enjoy your happy hour brew as the cityscape towers above and the river ripples by. On a rainy day, there’s plenty of space to perch inside too. Head over to the bar to get the good times rolling. On tap, all the usual suspects are on show – Furphy, Heineken, White Rabbit, Kosciusko and Little Creatures among others. If wine is more your speed, there’s a neat selection of reds, whites, roses and sparkling to colour yourself happy. Happy Hour kicks off at 4 pm each day with $5 schooners, wines and spirits.
When it comes to eating, you will find a fresh take on pub classics. Think Fried Chicken with pickles and chipotle, Beer Battered Fish And Chips, Sirloin Steak with peppercorn sauce and even a Chicken Pie made with White Rabbit Dark Ale Braised Chicken with buttery mash. Pizzas, burgers and all your favourite goodies are also well represented. If you’re stopping by for lunch, the ‘express’ option gets you a delicious midday treat for $12, while weekly specials include Tuesday Parma Nights and Thursday Steak Nights for $15 from 5 pm.
The Wharf Hotel was built for entertaining large crowds. It is a token meeting place for Melbourne’s musos, with the indoor stage lighting up for some of the city’s up and coming songsters every weekend. It also caters to the footy crowds, with 8 enormous screens televising games from across sports codes and countries, all day every day.
