Venue type: Pub
No pub crawls, no chatting on the mobile, no shots or energy drinks - the Standard has a few rules and regulations of this kind for punters to adhere to. Don't be alarmed though, as management's efforts to maintain a civilised environment has struck a chord with many (especially the residential neighbours) and the Standard is a popular watering hole. The good menu, cosy environment and great beer garden might have something to do with it.
Quirky vintage paraphernalia adorn the walls and the service us good.
Scoring a table is sometimes difficult, especially on those balmy evenings just made for drinking outdoors.
A word on the Carlton Draught here. It's good, very good - possibly one of the best in Melbourne.
Outdoor Area / Beer Garden
The beer garden here is an real drawcard, and also has an outside bar when the weather justifies it. The seating accommodates 120 people in 3 separate outdoor sections, equipped with leafy shade and lush foliage. An urban oasis.
Live Music Venue
Live music, but only a couple of nights per week, so best to phone ahead.
Cool pub which can be a bit hard to find if you aren't a local. The outdoor beer garden (is more like someones backyard than a beergarden) is perfect for a cold afternoon beer and parmagiana on a hot January arvo. The relaxed feel creates a great vibe.
