The Rochester Hotel sits right in the heart of Fitzroy and ‘The Rochey’ has Fitzroy in its heart.
At this dog-friendly pub, you’ll find fun modern twists on classic cocktails, local wine and the finest craft beers. There’s the stylish long dining room in the middle, and pool table and comfy beer garden out the back. Fireplaces throughout also make The Rochey your go-to winter watering hole.
The Rochey menu has a contemporary and diverse take on your classic Australian pub fare, while also fusing Asian inspired mains using ethically and locally sourced produce from around Victoria. From the most moreish of ‘bar bites’ to the tastiest of mains, the biggest problem is what to choose.
They’re your friendly, local pub, great for a quiet drink and a catch up with mates over a game of pool. Late on Friday and Saturday nights though, the front bar comes alive with a stellar rotating cast of Melbourne’s finest selectors on the decks. On Sunday afternoon’s they shift back down a gear with their Sunday Sessions, home to some of Melbourne’s favourite singer-songwriters and their favourite Sunday roast.
Monday to Friday Happy Hours, $1 oysters and buffalo wings on Mondays, burger night trivia on Tuesday’s, locals night on Wednesdays, and free comedy and karaoke on Thursday’s… There’s always something going down at The Rochey.
