MELBOURNE | The George Hotel opened in 1857, and was purchased by one Freddie Wimpole in 1873. As well as owning this St Kilda institution, Freddie Wimpole was also mayor of the St Kilda, and director of The Melbourne Co-operative Brewing Company (the forerunner to Carlton & United Brewers). Fittingly, the bar that now sits on the site of the former George Hotel is named after the man.

Visitors to Freddie Wimpoles are greeted with a low lit, hunting lodge meets USA sports bar styled venue, complete with taxidermy animals, a pool table, and jukebox. There are 12 taps of rotating local and international craft beers, a whole lot of cans and bottles and, if you decide to mix things up a bit, over 180 spirits. The cocktail selection is very decent too, with an assortment of classics and house creations on offer. Try the signature basil and blueberry martini, with vodka, fresh basil & blueberries, lemon, and Mozart white chocolate liqueur.

If you’re hungry, it’s a menu full of American bar favourites like fried chicken sandwiches, pastrami on rye, and chicken wings. There’s also a small selection of quality Indian dishes from the fantastic Babu Ji next door. The Delhi chicken kebab, with chicken thighs, soft green salad, & roasted garlic yogurt, is a real winner.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
