We had an intimate wedding reception in the courtyard room. It was amazing and everything that we had hoped for. The service from the first contact through to the end of the night was excellent. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough!

Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots,
hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic.
Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll
find little independent shops where local clothes and
furniture designers display their wares. There are
specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality
vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best
thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its

Welcome to Fitzroy Town Hall Hotel! Fresh new life has been pumped into this classic public house by chef Sean Donovan and his team. A series of cosy and intimate beautifully curated spaces offering a wide range of drinking and dining experiences have been created. The venue offers four distinct areas, a traditional yet stylish public bar complete with vintage tiling, wood panelling and a snug offering premium craft beverages and casual dining spaces. The bistro dining room has a hunting lodge feel with rich tartans, textured wallpaper and ambient lighting alongside a juxtaposing light, green and lush conservatory feel dining area. Exclusive private dining is offered in the old wine cellar and is perfect for a range of special occasions from intimate wedding parties to corporate events. The upstairs level has been restored to its former glory to offer a flexible and accommodating space. This gorgeous area will cater to dining, functions, bar and lounge areas and access to the balcony which overlooks Johnson Street. Fitzroy Town Hall Hotel offers a variety of generous, quality driven, unpretentious dining experiences as well as accommodating those who simply wish to come in, pull up a bar stool and enjoy a nice cold beer! Our menu focuses on seasonal, fresh, artisan ingredients with a European flavour. Premium beef and seafood, smokey wood bbq and rotisserie echo Donovan's rustic and generous yet finessed style of cooking. Ultimately our goal is to recreate the ambiance of the quintessential corner pub that offers excellent food with Donovan's well-known generosity in portions and flavour.
