Common Man - CLOSED

There's nothing common about this pub, from an ice-skating rink to raging fire pit, it's full of surprises.

You know that overachiever from high school that seemed to be good at everything? That's the Common Man. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days per week. It boasts indoor and outdoor seating, with both city and river views. Over summer, you can expect everything from a pop-up open-air cinema and giant-sized lawn games, to a craft beer bar in a freaking caravan. In the cooler months, the Common Man is home to the Fire Garden, featuring an impressive collection of heaters, meat smokers, and fire pits. It's even been home to a fully enclosed ice-skating rink, aptly named the Arctic Oasis, to indulge all your Mighty Ducks fantasies.

Not surprisingly, it's also got a regularly rotating entertainment roster, with live music, trivia nights, and sport on every screen. The weekend brunch menu includes the option to add a bottomless bubbles beverage pack, while the Friday menu is famous for their one dollar hot wings. Frothing for something a little on the nerdy side? Sign up for the sausage making class, or school yourself on spirits with a whisky masterclass.
