There’s some atmosphere. There’s some cool. There’s some nice drinkies.
Exposed bricks, street views, people watching and late night, early morning vibes.
The start to a big night out.
Friday lunch with the team.
Casual drink with the mates.
Intro mates to a new venue.
The bench and stools at the window.
As you’ll see if you take a look at their website, The Dominion league embraces history and heritage. And they apply this historical embrace to the fit out, their branding and their focus on good old fashioned and well informed service. There’s a collection of teaspoons mounted on the wall that brought back memories of our grandparents’ place.
Walk in to this jumpin’ joint, (that jumps until 2am on Fri and Sat nights) and you’ll see all this coming right at you. The fit out’s solid and soulful old school with exposed brick walls, timber floors and blackened detail ceilings.
You’ll also find an extensive range of craft beers and for real lovers of the golden nectar on tap, they have a regularly changing lineup coming up the lines.
The people who work here, know their stuff and are keen to discuss the finer details and help you explore something new.
The food is made for sharing but will also work if you’re the first to arrive, or taking on a solo session. The menu is infused with worldly experience and best described as gourmet pub grub that was brilliant, and exceeded our expectations.
Some days you may find free garlic popcorn that will blow your mind, but every day you will receive good ol fashioned service in a venue oozing olde world charm.
What’s really cool about this place, and while it might not be totally unique, it’s certainly not typical, is the full-height street front bench and stools. You can sit and sip and watch the people stroll, stride and sidle on past. And these windows open right up, so in summer the streetscape is brought into the venue. Cool in more ways than one.
This is a pretty place, with a cool fit out and a well defined approach to the delivery of drinks, food and good times. On sunny arvos you’ll see the sunlight beaming and streaming through the leadlight windows. Beautiful. And there’s beer, which is beautiful too.
Find the Dominion League on Beaufort Street, near the recently refurbished Trades Hall.
