The Public Bar

You're in Melbourne CBD, you're thirsty, its a Monday, I've got a little secret to tell you - The Public Bar.

Yes my friends, a Melburnian hot spot, which only getting hotter as the old temperature climbs its way through the city smog.

The location? Just across the road for Queen Vic Markets, 238 Victoria Street.

Wait, did you say Monday?

Yes I did my friend, The Public Bar is open normal bar hours (Friday & Saturday) but Monday afternoon as the sun goes down, so do the drink prices.

1 pots & $4.50 Jugs, amazing.

Although if you are a beer connoisseur I would take a deep breath and calm down before you get too excited, as they only serve Geelong Bitters on the cheap. An acquired taste, personally I have no qualms with slamming them down the hatch, but I have overheard someone say it tasted like 'sadness'.

There is no dance floor, and you can only just hear music, but what it lacks in rhythm, it makes up for in the people, with beers flowing, you will always make a new friend.

I do have beef with the toilet situation, as there is only two ladies toilets in the whole establishment, which has given me ample time to learn the "I need to pee" dance.

Sorry if I sound like a horrible warehouse ad in the next few sentences but, you gotta get in quick!

The best seats are outside during spring, but they fill fast, so if you want your posse to have some where to hang I would recommend getting there around 6pm and save the awkward "nah its cool, I can stand."

So if you want to drink, talk, discover, make new mates and save coin, I'll see you at The Public Bar.
