Best Pubs & Restaurants

114 Smith St, Collingwood, 3066

Located in the heart of vibrant Smith Street, the Grace Darling Hotel has established itself as one of inner city Melbourne’s most iconic venues and is the perfect place for a catch up with friends and family. Built in 1852, Melbourne’s second oldest hotel has been stylishly and beautifully refurbished and offers fully equipped, unique and private spaces for events up to 180 people.

The venue is comprised of 3 levels and features the Public Bar, the upstairs Band Room, the rustic Cellar Bar, the sunken glass roofed Atrium, as well as an extensive outdoor beer garden and deck seating over 100 people.

The menu represents traditional pub fare interpreted in a unique and contemporary way using sustainable and local produce wherever possible. The team has made sure to look after their vegetarian and vegan friends with this carefully designed offering.

The drink selection features 18 beer taps with a constantly rotating selection of craft beer and mainstay favourites, a carefully selected boutique wine list, and an impressive range of spirits and seasonal cocktails.

Whether you are there for a friendly dining experience in this cozy candlelit establishment, an after work catch up curled up in front of the open fireplaces on our Chesterfield couches with a cheeky red, a pint in the sunshine or a weekend night partying with your friends listening to our rotating roster of Melbourne's finest DJ's, this rocking public house has something for you.

The Public Bar

They can reserve an area in the main bar area if you'd like to be amongst the action but require a semi private space.
