The Post Office Hotel’s Many Charms

Posted by


A sincere impression (good or bad) can be measured by the number of times you raise it in conversation. And in recent times, my blatherings have almost always referred to The Post Office Hotel.

Thoughtfully transformed from a crusty dive, The Post Office captures the qualities of a ‘Melbourne’ pub; beer garden, good food, a broad selection of booze (and boozehounds) plus friendly staff to boot.

It’d be remiss of me not to mention the proprietors of the Post Office; Shannon Vanderwert and Pat Bourke from Dallas Crane, Tex Perkins, and Danial Caneva, all have a hand in the pub. Their connections and love of music guarantees punters are treated to some of the best live music Melbourne has to offer.

The Sunday Music Sessions usually start round 4pm and feature two sets. You don’t even have to know who’s playing, just trust that the Post Office will deliver an amiable afternoon of entertainment in a cosy environment.

The past few months have seen Gareth Liddiard and Mike Noga from the Drones, Ash Naylor (Even), Jordie Lane, Davey Lane (You Am I), Sime Nugent ,Little John, Charles Jenkins, Pete Satchel (Dallas Crane) and Chris Altmann. Whether seated, standing or playing pool there are plenty of comfortable viewing points, and kids are welcome.

Sunday sessions kick off again from January 9 with Adrian Stoyles (The Gin Club). You can keep up to speed with upcoming gigs at The Post Office Hotel’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/home.php#!/group.php?gid=196733294730&v=info

Or just rock up, grab a beer, a roast (the head chef used to front MoMo!) for some sublime chicken, pork belly or snapper for two and settle in for a lazy Sunday.
