Formerly the Portland Hotel, this iconic venue has recently undergone extensive renovations to offer you modern bar, restaurant and function facilities across two levels. But never fear – the Crafty Squire is still home of the famous James Squire Brewhouse, the only working microbrewery in Melbourne’s CBD!

Whether you choose to enjoy a mouth-watering pub meal, catch some live sport on the big screen TVs, or hold your next party or event in one of the function spaces, The Crafty Squire is a fine example of a true ‘local’ pub in Melbourne CBD.
