Pubs and Clubs welcomes Prince Alfred Hotel, in Carlton for all your restaurant and entertainment needs, enquire online today.
PA's as it's known by the locals, is very much a student bar - what else would you expect being right next to Melbourne Uni?
Tends to be a bit of a favourite with the Engineers, Surveyors, and of course the I.T. mob (who have their building two doors down).
Best time is of course lunchtimes weekdays and also evenings at the weekends. A good, friendly pub.
3.6 based on 5 reviews
Great to have this open again. Super cute fit-out, and an easy place to go with a group as you can order separately. Definitely targeting the young uni crowd as almost all the searing is high stools. The food is nothing to write home about.
I like this bar, it's close to uni, the drinks are reasonably priced, the food is alright I 'spose. This would be a 5 star review if I wasn't firmly convinced the metal chairs on the rooftop bar weren't exhibits from a Sadism Museum. Who picked those abominations out... I'm positive these torture devices have been outlawed by the Geneva Convention. Were these chairs milotsry surplus from an interrogation unit at Guantanamo?
I was here years ago and since then they have renovated the place with bright colours, new seating and a complete new design upstairs. Not much of a view from the rooftop bar but you do get the midday sun and they do have outdoor heaters. A good variety of beers on tap with happy hours between 4 and 6.
Cool new interior, great beers on tap and good value, quality menu. Very close to Melbourne uni, so perfect to pop into after an assignment submission! Good live DJs playing from mid afternoon and a nice rooftop bar. Very pleasant experience.
Relaunched after an extended hiatus the Prince Alfred is now under the umbrella of the 100 Burgers Group who are clearly working hard to make an impression. On first glance the refurbishment of the interior is rather modest ... mostly cosmetic with a more complete overhaul of the tired old bathroom facilities. The Landlord's stated goal to continue the venue contributing to "student amenity across the extended campus" is unlikely to succeed given the price point of meals on the standard menu. There is a good value $15 express lunch menu with very limited options (4) and on a recent visit the chicken served was (dangerously) under cooked. To attract students and academic staff they will need to start providing public wifi.
