Public Bar

Bars Restaurant and Cafe

Public’s colourful character welcomes you like an old friend. Located in Manuka’s trendy shopping and food precinct, Public is warm, social and inviting. It’s where you’ll celebrate good food, good drink and good company.

Public is Manuka’s largest pub venue, offering lunch, dinner and all-day snacks, seven days a week. Share plates or enjoy public classics. Tantalise your tastebuds with mains that cover all bases, from a tasty nasi goreng to a juicy eye fillet (gluten free dishes readily available). For a sweet ending, indulge in Public’s famous desserts.

You can also wake up and smell the bacon in Public at breakfast on weekends, starting with great coffee.

Public has a fabulous vibe with special offerings through the week. Need to unwind? Spring into Public for happy hour weekdays and $10 cocktails Friday and Saturday. Public’s drinks menu features top drops, including award-winning local wines, specialty beers and a large selection of spirits and liqueurs. Order underneath the massive atrium at the long wooden bar, where staff pour beers, shake sexy cocktails and serve up bubbles.

Be seen at Public on Sundays and top off your weekend with live music. Relax outdoors or inside. The choice is yours.
