Review: 

Young and Jackson prides itself on being Australia's most famous pub. While that title may be a little dubious, it's certainly an iconic establishment. Located directly opposite Flinders Street Station, it's one of the first things visitors to Melbourne's city centre see. It's also a haven of calm (most days) amid the hustle and bustle of the CBD. Duck in after lunch on a weekday and you'll find a handful of patrons enjoying the vintage pub atmosphere. The front bar (and attached lounge) might not be particularly outlandish, but therein lies the appeal. Young and Jackson is 'old school'. It's been here since 1861, and with its ornate ceiling, classic decor and 'pub' carpet, it retains much of that traditional charm. If that's the kind of scene you're after, than early afternoon visits are definitely best - things tend to get considerably more rowdy in the evenings; especially on weekends when they have live cover bands. Upstairs, the cocktail lounge is a whole different kettle of fish - so to speak. The bar stools and long bench top tables are nowhere to be seen; instead you'll find old leather couches, ottomans, palm trees and large framed photos documenting the pub's rich heritage. The drinks menu is also more elaborate, featuring a full cocktail and tapas selection. Those looking for a comfortable pub to enjoy an ale (or a cocktail), will find Young and Jackson laidback, friendly and very conveniently located. Get there early and the upstairs levels also provide spectacular views out over Federation square.

Coopers Inn

Review: 

Is there anything more Australian than a collection of vintage beer cans? The short answer is: no. No, there isn't. Coopers Inn understands this and has allocated one entire corner of the pub to their collection. 300 plus cans and bottles dating back to the 19th century are prominently on display, giving the pub a suitably casual vibe. As the management describe it, Coopers Inn is going for that "suburban pub in the city" atmosphere. If they mean the outer suburbs, than they've done a sterling job. There's nothing particularly flashy about the Coopers Inn and that's kind of the point. This is a laidback venue for unpretentious management types and office workers; guys who sport Hale and Pace haircuts with matching facial hair. It's purpose built for people who will appreciate the VB beer coasters, daily pub specials and karaoke on Friday nights (after they've downed a few). While Saturday nights are reserved for private functions, the rest of the week sees the venue offering punters 10 different beers on tap, a modest selection of wines and all the spirits you'd expect to find in a pub. The actual decor is simple and clean; with the exception of the beer can feature wall its pub greens, wooden tables and posters on the walls advertising the trivia night. If you've been to all the best bars in Melbourne and are sick of paying for elaborate cocktails and interesting décor, then this is the opposite end of the spectrum. A suburban pub in the centre of the city.

Review: 

Revolver is legendary throughout Australia. It's one of those rare venues whose reputation extends beyond state boundaries. The debauched reputation of the place (and its 24-hour license) has a lot to do with that; Revolver is one of those places countless DJs, bands and hangers on have found themselves at, at 7am on a Sunday morning with limited memory of the previous night. Things are considerably less messy in the afternoons and evenings. Get there early and you'll find an ample selection of worn leather couches to choose from, walls covered in stencil art and a mixed bag of music on the PA. Even by day the place is a hub for musicians and industry people who like to conduct meetings over a drink or a game of pool. In keeping with the venue's grungy ambience, the drink selection is basic but gets the job done. You'll find an assortment of beers, wines and basic spirits behind the counter and, well, that's about it. Given the bar staff all tend to be involved in bands, that's probably for the best. Oh, and speaking of bands, the frontbar hosts everything from hip hop to rock to dance acts most nights of the week. You can drop in early for a bowl of mee goreng from the Thai restaurant and stay all night for a live gig and a thrashing on the pool table.
