Pub culture has always been an important part of an Australian night out, and that shows no signs of changing. In Melbourne, bars and pubs range from traditional hotels and simple hostelries to chic contemporary cocktail bars. The city's bar scene has changed over recent years, but there is still a place for the old-school establishment offering classic pub grub that usually includes the city's famous meat pies. Some of Melbourne's oldest bars and pubs are historic buildings, treasured relics of the city's past.
Whether it's footie, cricket, or tennis, Melbourne locals tend to be sports fanatics. The city offers a wealth of spacious sports bars, offering comfort food menus and a big screen to catch the big game. Melbourne bars and pubs also include more intimate establishments, atmospheric places where you can enjoy one of the city's latest craft beers or a cocktail. Many offer an alternative to pub food, with menus that promise bistro-style dishes, contemporary Asian cuisine, or artisan pizza.
