The Empress Hotel


The Empress Hotel is a renewed and revamped take on a North Fitzroy icon.

Retaining the classic corner pub atmosphere The Empress Hotel is brought into the contemporary with Chef Lucy Warner’s Modern Australian take on classic pub cuisine with Italian flare. The public bar features craft beer from Melbourne and further afield, as well as ever changing selections of wines and boutique spirits.

Enjoy the light filled dining hall, available for group bookings large and small, private dining or casual dinner with friends and family. Food and drink offerings are flexible, with set menus, canapés and a la carte available for group bookings.

Doing away with the dingy and dank of corner pubs of the past, Publican Guy David has torn the roof off what was once a band room to reveal a sun filled beer garden perfect for long summer days and alfresco all-day dining.

The Empress Hotel in North Fitzroy offers live sports, Modern Australian pub fare and features craft beer all to be enjoyed in the cosy public bar, the newly renovated dining hall or the sun speckled leafy beer garden.
