Welcome to The Yarra Hotel Abbotsford. Depending how you look at it, we’re either a couple years, or 160 years old. We took over the joint in September 2013 and spent six months trying to find the old pub that was underneath there somewhere – and when we finally did weren’t we ecstatic! It’s a ripper! The atrium beer garden is huge and heated; the band room rocks the best local and national talent on offer; and the kitchen’s killer for pub classics and weekly specials.

Music-wise, our bandroom pleasures your ear-balls every week with the best live’n’local acts, plus our fine vinyl selection will get your hip-cat purring with the cream of Oz talent and favourites old & new spinning on our turntables. Our Sunday arvo DJ sets bring more of the best tunes to shake off your week with sonic bliss in our beer garden, and with a bunch of label showcases, charity gigs and international touring acts already under our belt there’s sure to be a special something coming up just for you. Check out our upcoming gigs here.

Food-wise, we’ve got a fine selection of traditional pub standards guaranteed to fill the belly and put a smile on your face, plus some delicious weekly specials on our menu here. The kitchen is open 5pm – 9.30pm Monday-Thursday, 12pm – 9.30 Friday & Saturday, and 12pm – 9pm Sundays.

The Yarra is perfect for parties and we’re here to help with your special event. Our function room is a good size for 20-100 people, and set up so you can enjoy your own tunes and even book your own bands. Or our beer garden has both heated/covered areas and an open courtyard to soak up the occasionally glorious Melbourne sun. Just ask our friendly staff at the bar or shoot us an email at functions@theyarrahotel.com.au if you’d like to make a booking.

Recently voted Melbourne’s 14th best destination for Tinder dates*, there’s not much that we can’t help you with here at The Yazz.

Oh, and the bar staff are all very attractive and very single.*
