Arbory Bar & Eatery Re-Opens
With permission to host 94 guests at any one time, Melbourne’s much-loved venue Arbory Bar & Eatery is thrilled to reopen, welcoming guests back to the iconic riverside bar. Following its closure in March this year, Arbory has reopened with capacity to host 94 guests at any one time – currently the largest dining capacity in Melbourne. Its reopening will also see the venue welcome back over 90 of its staff members.
Open daily from 12pm to 10pm, Arbory is now taking bookings* and welcoming walk-ins. In effort to support local, a burger & Mountain Goat Ale offering for $25 is available between 12pm to 6pm Monday to Sunday.
Head Chef Nick Bennett has also designed a fitting feed saying, “We’ve paired the menu back to the classics that we know our customers love. We’re so excited to see some familiar faces back by the river and we feel privileged to be able to welcome so many guests”
The menu consists of Arbory favourites including:
• Double cheeseburger with bacon, pickles, tomato relish and crinkle cut chips
• Chilli dog, spicy beef, onion, cheese, mustard and jalapeño
• Salt and pepper fried calamari and Sicilian chilli aioli
• 250g Great Southern Pinnacle Sirloin, baby spinach, onion rings & pepper sauce
There’s also something for the kids with a cheeseburger and chips, fish and chips, fried chicken and chips or pasta all on the menu for just $10 each.
Continuing its support of the arts community, Arbory has reinstated a rotating schedule of DJs every weekend on Fridays and Saturday nights, kicking off with DJ Mugen & JNett this Friday 12 June and Prequel and HansDC on Saturday 13 June.
To celebrate this milestone, the Lord Mayor of Melbourne Sally Capp was delighted to visit Arbory today to check out its final preparations before re-opening to the public and be the first to dine, enjoying a classic Arbory burger and the view.
“Melbourne is carefully relaxing restrictions and it is so encouraging to see another iconic city venue starting to trade again,” the Lord Mayor said.
“Our city is world famous for its restaurants, cafes and bars and we know how crucial this sector is to the economy. I would like to encourage everyone to safely support our local hospitality businesses because they are a huge part of what makes Melbourne so marvellous,” she continued.
Located on Melbourne’s Yarra River and situated next to Flinders Street Station, the venue is best known for its energetic bar, views of the river and hugely popular list of burgers.
