Time Out Melbourne

Melbourne’s oldest pub has you covered for all your after-work needs

The Duke of Wellington is clean and modern: a bit of a rarity for inner-city pubs. The minimalist public bar is ringed by comfortable green banquettes. The ceiling of exposed air-con ducting painted black gives it an industrial chic feel. This is the official home of the Melbourne Demons and there’s a couple of big screens playing highlights from the week when a game’s not on.

Beers on tap stick to the standards, along with a cloudy and balanced James Squire cider. There’s also a couple of solid options in the bottle like Acme Pale Ale and Four Pines. The second level holds a wine bar and function area, and the top floor is now home to Manhattan lounge-style steakhouse, Dutchess. Even on a Monday, there’s plenty of loosened ties enjoying a pint and a banter, proving the Duke’s position as a CBD favourite.
