Hotel Spencer Bar & Dining Room

Home from home


At the Hotel Spencer Bar & Dining Room have aimed to stay true to the 100 years of its rich history of this Melbourne icon and placed a modern twist on old fashioned 1920’s localized hospitality. The Hotel Spencer is a relaxed place where people can come and enjoy the atmosphere, feel at home and eat delicious simple food.

At the Hotel Spencer we welcome international visitors to Melbourne, or tradesmen from adjacent building sites, or music lovers in black tie en route to a Festival Hall performance, or sport fans for pre-footy drinks and of-course the hugely diverse and interesting business- and local patrons. 

Although we take bookings for events and lunchtime during the week our evenings are on a first come first served basis. It works well because if people arrive, and there is no available table, they can have a drink in the front bar and wait for one – soaking up the relaxed and informal atmosphere amongst friends.  The selection of wines and choice of craft beer tap are designed to be represent all possible variations in taste and interest.

We aim for Hotel Spencer to become second home to our frequent guests including international travelers, (aspiring and other) celebrities, AFL players and fans alike. The one thing everyone can count on is consistency and simplicity and this combined with real value for money creates a winning formula. We are conveniently located in West Melbourne, only a 10-minute walk from the Southern Cross station or Etihad stadium. 

Come and try us - we would like to be your local!
