The Public Bar

Our Public Bar is the meeting place, the heart and soul of the Builders Arms Hotel that has been welcoming punters for over 160 years. It’s a flexible space too. Stop by for a drink any day of the week and watch Gertrude Street pass you by.

Our wine list and draught beers champion many small-scale producers, and cocktails range from the classic to the curious. Daily changing bar snacks and counter meals are the perfect partner with your beverage of choice. Come for dinner early in the week to experience Steak Night Monday and Charcoal Chicken Tuesday – delicious, generous meals for only $19. Our 3 TV screens in the Public Bar mean you can enjoy the sport of the season from the comfort of your bar stool, with cricket, AFL & AFLW, and tennis all getting a guernsey. Annual footy tipping also keeps the AFL season alive with some healthy competition.

Our kitchen is open from midday to late every day.
