Dan O'Connell Hotel
Open: Mon-Thu 4pm-1am, Fri 12pm-1am, Sat 12pm-1am, Sun 2pm-11pm
The Dan O'Connell Hotel is cut of the exact cloth that made public houses the social hub of Melbourne. The Dan O'Connell is a celebration of the simple fact that drinking and talking makes for healthy interaction. Genuine is the first impression one gets of The Dan. Sure there's an endless number of 'themed' bars in Melbourne but there are few that pull it off. The Dan O'Connell isn't a themed pub, it's quite simply, a pub that is purely Irish in its disposition. With heavy tables and chairs, and a bar that is built for pulling up a barstool and having a chat with drinking hombres, The Dan makes for a unique drinking experience in Melbourne. There's a simple and effective menu of Irish-Australian fare, and a huge line of tap beers. With a bottleshop attached and host to the biggest St Patricks day celebration in the city, The Dan will leave you appreciating the simpler things in life.
