Union Club Hotel
A local's pub hidden in the backstreets of Fitzroy.
January 31, 2017
The Union Club Hotel is a Fitzroy stalwart. Walk into any of its rooms, any day of the week, and you'll see a steady collection of loyal locals knocking back pots. While it's a traditional Aussie pub, it has adapted to the times. It's lineup of good pub grub (parmas, burgers and steaks) come with considered gluten-free and vegetarian alternatives (eggplant parma, felafel burger and Nepalese dahl). It's walls are covered with music posters from yonder, but other walls adorn more recent street are, and the sprawling, heated beer garden downstairs is spotted with lush fig leafs. There's another option for outdoor dining, too, a rooftop deck — perfect for sunlit after-work drinks.
