One of Melbourne’s hidden gems tucked away below Federation Square, Pilgrim is an intimate waterfront venue that proudly engages an all-Australian menu. With locally sourced produce and passionate staff that enjoy talking about it, Pilgrim is the Aussie experience that’s fancier than a meat pie, but relaxed enough that you can pop in wearing your flip flops. It’s the perfect balance of being unpretentious while offering a quality seasonal menu and extensive beverage list of wine, beer and spirits.
Sitting proudly on the banks of the Yarra River, enjoy a $5 Happy Hour drink 4:30-6:30pm Sunday to Thursday. Choose from beer, wine or bubbles which is of course all Australian brands.
They also have free stand-up comedy program that runs once a month which is always a full house and a barrel of laughs. Or grab a $35 ticket to one of their Talk & Taste sessions which gets you up close and personal with Aussie liquor producers, a generous tasting of their range and canapés from Pilgrim’s chefs.
