Inspired by the urban grunge of St Kilda's roots, the Newmarket Hotel combines retro funk with modern sophistication. Known for its fairy-light speckled beer garden, fresh take on Australian pub classics, striking interiors and dedicated gig space, this St Kilda resident is one to check out.

Having undergone extensive renovations in recent years, Newmarket Hotel has been revitalised from the ground up. Offering a range of pub classics, alongside some Newmarket twists, the menu compliments Melbourne's ever-changing climate. Think ocean trout sashimi, pickled vegetables, chill, lime and soy ($14), gnocchi with rich tomato sugo ($22) and veal schnitzel with braised red cabbage, chat potatoes and gorgonzola butter ($26). Complimenting the top-notch menu is a wine and beer list to match, with over 17 beers on tap.

Newmarket's newly revamped dedicated gig space, the Hummingbird, is host to a genre-tripping lineup of acts, from jazz to soul funk to R&B and even comedy. The intimate band room features a shiny new stage and sound system, hosting a bunch of shows every week.
