$5 pints of Brunswick Bitter. You read that right. $5 pints. Have we got your attention? If that’s not a good enough reason to visit Fitzroy watering hole, Parkview Hotel, you might need to reorganise your priorities.
In all seriousness, the Parkview Hotel is the epitomy of the classic Aussie pub and there’s much more to it than just $5 pints. Catering to a diverse crowd of students, locals and pokie lovers, the Parkview Hotel includes an always-busy beer garden, restaurant/bistro area, sports bar and drive-thru bottle shop, with the friendly staff making you feel more than welcome.
The sports bar is a winner, showing all the big games on multiple screens, including every AFL game televised throughout the season. You can try the beer of the month or grab a cheap pint during their daily Happy Hour running from 4pm – 7pm. Along with the sport being shown on the big screens, Parkview Hotel’s sports bar hosts tournaments and trivia on different days of the week.
The Parkview also has a fantastic restaurant area with a smorgasbord of tasty meals to sink your teeth into. Not only is the food great, but also they have meal deals throughout the week for those looking to save a few bucks. Monday and Wednesday night you can grab $10 parmas all day and on Thursday you can order a steak for just $15.
Along with the great food, top-notch drink specials and the opportunity to watch every sport you can, the adjacent drive-thru bottle shop is a great place to grab a roadie for the trip home, provided you’re driving. The bottlo has a terrific choice of beer, wines and spirits, and best of all, is open till midnight over the weekend.
So do yourself a favour and head down to the Parkview Hotel this weekend for a couple of quiet froths and a meal. You won’t be disappointed.
