Heartbreaker Bar

This is one of my fav places in the city. they don’t have a beer garden so you have to smoke darts out on the street. i guess thats good because you smoke less but eh. its usually pretty busy but catch it when its quite and its the perfect place to play pool until 3am. They always have different beers on tap, i don’t know if i like that or not. I don’t like change so yeah i don’t like it. but apart from that its super cool. i love neon signs and low lights. best place for a hot date. you could go out for dumplings and then go here and play pool and hang out. omg it’d great.



This place is real cool. Perfect spot to get half cut before going to see a band place at The Bendigo or the Tote. I haven’t been for awhile but last time i went they had the best veggie dogs ever! such a good place just to hang out and and relax. theres no pressure to get wasted, you could probably have a water and that’d be sweet (but you wouldn’t get water would you, and if you would why are you on my blog… go away) I really need to go back here soon because i don’t have that much more to say except that its cool haha

maybe we could check it out together 😉



Joe’s Shoe Store

The big bro or sis of Uncle Joe’s, this place is rly rly cool. Beer garden is amazing so big and happy and nice. They open late and have a few beers on tap. tbh I’ve only been here once and I don’t remember the night very much but I do remember liking the vibes of this place a lot. Someone told me they get food from next door and i think its pizza as well! so thats rly cool.

I was drinking gin and tonic all night so not much to say about the beers but the gin must have been pretty cheap for me to afford it haha

Maybe i’ll go back here after all my assessments are submitted (im trying not to go out until the end of tri (I’m writing this while hungover)) I wish I had more to say but maybe this is one you can figure out on your own. I believe in you.



The Alderman

This pub is pretty noice. Take ya bf, take ya tinder date or take ya mum. This is probably one the nicest places I go for a bev. They’ve only got one beer on tap but thats okay. The jugs are small but thats okay. It has an amazing beer garden that makes you feel safe. The staff have a stick up their bum most the time and they get a little cross if you haven’t finished your drink the second they close but apart from that its still a really nice place. They have a tiny menu with little nibbles on it that are a bit too much $$

Not my fav place but worth having a beer with a hottie there (or ur mum)


Uncle Joe’s

This place just opened up on Lygon St, roughly a 7 minute walk from my house. I love it. they do only have one beer on tap and they don’t serve pints but apart form that everything is perfect. It’s one of those places that you could take your hot date and they’d probably think you were pretty cool. You can order pizza from the place next door and they’ll bring it into the bar for you! It’s small and cosy and once the beer gardens flowers start to grow it’ll feel like home (I dunno if that is sad or not? but i like the idea of homely places you can consume alcohol).

Uncle Joe’s also rules because it introduced me to Joe’s Shoe Store, the bigger brother bar on High St, Northcote.  I’ll do a post of that soon!



Bad Pub – Bar Open

The beer tastes like vegemite and its really expensive. Okay, I know this blog is called GOOD pubs for beer but I feel like its my public duty to express my dislike for this venue. A far as bad pubs go, this one isn’t the worst but theres just a few things that really piss me off. Vegemite beers, i don’t get it like do you need to clean the line or like did someone put their toast plate in the glass washer? The venue looks like your usual north side dive, live music, looks a bit dirty, every1 is kewl. But for some reason this place just has the worst vibes. They don’t even play music in the beer garden. Its 2am on a Wednesday, I really don’t need the only noise to be the voice inside my head questioning my every life decision. GET SOME SPEAKERS OUT THERE.

Some people love it, don’t know why. Just give this one a miss.

Edinburgh Castle

Okay so i’ve only been here once and it was sick. The beer garden is the best ever. First of all they have a ping pong table out there (cool), they have a shipping container thats turned into a stage kinda thing where local babes and dude-babes play fully sick tunes. For the non-smokers out there, they have a smoke free outside space. Although these tends to attract humans with smaller humans i think its pretty noice that places are making spaces for everyone. I didn’t order any food but my mates said it was tasty tasty. The beers and usual beer price and i’m guessing wine and stuff is usual wine and stuff price too.

The best thing about this place is its really close to my house.



The Tramway

The Tramway is probably one of the best pubs for a beer. Located in Fitzroy North, tucked away amongst  a bunch of houses none of us can afford and only a bloody stones throw away from Eddi Gardens, you will find good beer and sick food.

I think a pint is about usual pint price, but like just start a tab and pretend you can afford anything. Sometimes they have Elvis play and that will change your life, but usually they play loud rockin tunes along with live music on some days.

I love this pub because Ruby works there and everyone is cool and they made some t-shirts and you can smoke darts out the back even though it says no smoking. You can buy shirts that say “Girls to the Pub” and i like that.

I’ll add some more on this later.
