The Coopers Inn

Everything you could want from a traditional pub, where you can kick back and watch the footy with a parma and a pint.

A heritage-listed pub in the CBD that's been serving locals and visitors since the 1850s, the Coopers Inn knows what it's doing when it comes to hospitality. Family owned and run, Coopers has a bunch of different function rooms and spaces, a kitchen pumping out quality traditional pub fare (including vego, vegan and gluten free options) and a main bar complete with 75-inch TV screens and surround sound, for primo sport watching on a Saturday afternoon.

Weekly events at this Exhibition Street venue include Wednesday night painting classes (enjoyably named Arts and Draughts), trivia on Thursdays and a Friday night comedy gig, making it one of the only spots in the city where you can catch up-and-coming stand up talent every week — you've probably been there during comedy fest, as it's also an official Melbourne International Comedy Festival venue.
