The Standard Hotel, located on Fitzroy street in Fitzroy is a must visit for all pub lovers. Whether it is a sunny day or a cold, rainy Melbourne evening the Standard Hotel can cater for all.



The food ranges from traditional pub fare to slightly more gourmet options. If you are a meat lover or a vegetarian you will definitely find something that will tantalize your taste buds. There is an extensive wine list, and a great range of excellent beers on tap.

But the thing that elevates the Standard above it's peers is the layout of the pub. As you walk in you are confronted by a whole raft of Fitzroy themed nic-nacs, particularly memorabilia from the Fitzroy Lions Football club (now the Brisbane Lions), which reinforces this pubs roots in the Fitzroy area. These roots date back to 1865 when the pub was first licensed.

After walking through the front bar, you make your way out to the back of the establishment, where the real treat is, the beer garden. The Standard boasts the largest beer garden in Fitzroy which can provide for 120 patrons. It provides both covered and shaded areas and is perfect year round for enjoying a pint or a meal.

The Standard is also a great place to check out some live music, especially if you enjoy your music with a country twang.
The Standard truly is an icon of Fitzroy and is a must visit pub for a weekend outing with a great atmosphere. Find out more online, or head to Fitzroy street in Fitzroy (located between Brunswick street and Nicholson Street) to check out this iconic pub.
