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 cosy up to the flaming wood-fired rotisserie in the courtyard which is firing every day.

The Builders Arms Hotel offers two dining areas – the Bistro and Public Bar. Reservations are recommended, however, there’s plenty of additional tables reserved for walk-in guests.

One à la carte menu is available throughout the venue, alongside a selection of daily specials including Monday Steak Night, Tuesday’s Charcoal Chicken and a weekly highlight, the Sunday Roast. Montly trivia is also a highlight, with 3RRR’s Cam Smith asking the tough questions on local food, culture and history.

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