A visit to Melbourne - arguably Australia's trendiest city - is not complete without a visit to a few of its interesting, hidden and eclectic bars and pubs. Best Melbourne Pubs & Bars guides you to 260 pubs and bars in the central city area (CBD) and Docklands. The app also shows you which are the best of the 260 venues listed.

This 'must have' app features:

* Details on each venue (picture, address, phone, website, our comments about that venue, nearest station, opening hours)
* 1-3 photographs of each venue
* A live map showing the venues you have chosen to view (e.g. “Our Picks”, “Has Rooftop/Outdoor Area”; “Venues I have been to”; “Venues I haven’t been to”)
* Offline maps (in case you don't want to use roaming data on your phone)
* A "Like" feature so you can rate each venue you visit and see how many others like it too
* Send venue details to a friend via email, Facebook, Twitter or SMS - great for letting your friends know where you are
* List venues by “Our Picks”; “Most Popular (by Likes)”; “Has rooftop/outdoor area”; “Open on Sundays” (very handy when in the CBD, some are not open for your Sunday session!); “Venues I've been to”; "Venues I haven’t been to"
* Browse all venues by name, station or street
* "Find nearest favourite venue" using GPS
* Full text search of pub listings 

A handy feature as a tourist - the app lets you tick each venue you visit so on your next trip you know you have been there, and can try somewhere new.

From feedback on our app so far is that tourists really appreciate the Offline Maps feature. With the Best Melbourne Pubs & Bars app, if you are visiting Australia for a few days you don’t need to get a data plan to be guided of the best bars and pubs in Melbourne.

Ratings and Reviews

Disappointing - needs regular updates!

Just an ordinary bloke

A great idea but lets itself down massively. Outdated bars still listed (some have even closed down) and when you email the support team to tell them of closed bars / new ones, takes them MONTHS to reply to your email. Even then, they don't update their app with your new info. Lazy developers who can't be bothered putting in the work needed to keep it all current. And yet, such a great concept! Bring on a competitor who puts in the ongoing work. But don't waste your money here.

The best way to find Melbournes pubs and bars


This app is awesome. Not being from Melbourne, I would have walked straight past so many great places. The app is easy to use and I loved that I didn't need to burn up my phone credit finding them. I also would never have know what address I was actually at, so the SMS feature was great for letting my friends know where I was. Thanks for making my trip to Melbourne so easy!

Fantastic Melbourne bar app

Hangover 3

Have been looking for something like this for ages, where has it been. Already unearthed 2-3 hidden gems I never knew we're there. Highly recommend this app.
