After being closed for almost a year in the wake of the COVID pandemic and now that 2021 is well and truly here, it's time to start forgetting the hellishness of last year and celebrate the good things in life. The General Assembly is open and welcoming guests.

Like any resilient bunch, the come back will be bigger and better, a place you will be proud to call your South Wharf local. The menu designed by Executive Chef Brad Cunningham reflects a modern pub – whipped cod roe, crisp calamari and school prawns to entice the appetite, followed by generous chicken schnitzels, Hopkins River steaks or fisherman’s Pie. Wash it all down with over 15 beers on tap with five craft limited releases. Although beer takes centre stage, you will find summery cocktails like the nostalgia inducing Watermelon Warhead, as well as an extensive wine list for all tastes and budgets.


Experience Melbourne's iconic laneways within our South Wharf riverside pub. And if Melbourne’s weather is living up to its reputation, fear not because The General Assembly caters to four seasons in a day.

Peruse the delicious menu which offers Melbourne’s latest food trends, while you sample a huge range of drinks and listen to local acoustic artists. Don’t leave without discovering the street art installations around the venue, featuring various local artists including Blender Studios, Loui Jover and Brenda Meynell.
