Built by the Hardiman family in the 1870s, Hardimans Hotel was originally designed to resemble a ship, even sporting porthole windows at one stage.
Full steam ahead to now and Hardimans is an impressive building. Complete with a nautical theme that runs throughout, giving it a slight art deco look and feel.
Expansive windows letting in natural light makes the inside feel bright and airy. Downstairs there is an expansive bar and well considered dining area, that leads into a leafy beer garden with a beach side feel. Upstairs you’ll find function spaces with private bar and balcony.
We are a Melbourne craft beer pub. Our beer tap list is always changing, with a mix of well known favourite brands and styles plus local brews we love to support. You can also keep up-to-date with what’s on tap. We champion Aussie wine and spirits where we can, but you’ll find many others from all over the world to choose from too.
