The Emerald Bar


The Emerald Hotel, run by the Lewis Family for over 30 years, has won many prestigious awards. The Lewis’ take great pride in their hotel, extending warm hospitality and courteous attention to all their guests. It is one of the original South Melbourne Pubs and one of the longest single owned in the area.

The front bar at The Emerald is an institution. It has long been a critics’ & punters’ favourite alike. It’s a place where turf-talk is well debated and passionate footy tips exchanged. A comfortable, air-conditioned true-blue bar with ALL racing shown LIVE with TAB facilities. Our Sports Bar show ALL AFL games LIVE through FOXTEL Sports Network. The bar service has been so well written up, you’ll have to come and experience it for yourself! Hearty bar meals are served daily and the draught beer is first class.

The Bar is open Tuesday – Saturday from 12 noon until late.


Situated adjacent to the bar, is the EMERALD ROOM which is ideal for casual get together and after work drinks. The Emerald Room is a great area for a private function to suit any budget.
