Woolshed Pub

Capacity: Standing - 720
Seating - 150

Once upon a time, The Woolshed Pub was a wool storage facility. Way back in the day, that was - in the early 1900s, to be exact. If you’d wandered in looking for an after work pint and a pub meal, you’d have been disappointed. And surrounded by wool. Luckily for all of us, the entire area has been now been transformed into a hotbed of restaurants, bars and waterside views. Success. It’s easy to see signs of the Woolshed Pub’s past though, even as one enjoys the aforementioned after work pint and pub meal. The spacious expanse of concrete floors, the lofty ceilings, the rustic beams … it all speaks of Melbourne’s old docking and shipping precinct. Modern design and fixtures though, make sure the Woolshed’s stylish enough for the office workers of Melbourne to feel very much at home within the Woolshed’s walls. The Woolshed boasts a diverse menu, full of both aged meats, fresh seafood (we are near the ocean, after all), and some stellar boutique beers. Upstairs, there’s a striking and modern event space for use as a function venue. The Woolshed Pub is found along Harbour Esplanade, just at the beginning of Historic Walk/Central Pier. Which, in case that’s not specific enough, is opposite Etihad Stadium, and near LaTrobe Street. The 30, 35, 70 and 71 trams will get you there.
