I bought a bottle of Peroni and Corona for the grand total of $22! Sure, it's a nice pub but there are plenty of other good options around for a lot less than that.

What a disgrace. Went here for a good time. Beer was watered down. The environment was rubbishy. Do not go here if you have an alternative

We were there for the AFL Final and it was pretty crowded. It was a nice place to watch the game and have drinks. The view is great and definitely a nice place to go with friends, colleagues or partners.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
