Builders Arms Hotel


The Builders Arms Hotel is a landmark public house on Gertrude Street, Fitzroy, housing a Public Bar, Bistro, private dining spaces and courtyard. This iconic public house is under the stewardship of chef Andrew McConnell and publican Anthony Hammond.

A regular meeting place, The Public Bar is the heart and soul of the Builders – with a considered wine list, 12 rotating draught beers and daily changing bar snacks and counter meals. Catch the latest sporting match shown live across multiple screens, or cozy up to the flaming wood-fired rotisserie in the courtyard which is firing every day.

The Bistro is a welcoming dining room with warm and friendly table service. The Bistro menu focuses on classic, seasonal dishes and a daily specials board highlights the very best seafood, dry-aged beef and game of the moment.

Upstairs from the bustling pub are two private dining spaces, The Bowery Room – with high ceilings, polished floorboards and open kitchen, and The Private Room – an intimate corner with leafy views over Gertrude Street.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
