The Hawthorn Hotel is back and better than ever, opening its doors once again on Tuesday, 22nd June.After closing in 2020 due to the impacts of the coronavirus, the iconic 153-year-old pub is returning with a fresh new look but the same local spirit that everyone knows and loves.
The new dining space features exposed brick, arched windows, plenty of lush greenery, a mix of high and low tables, plus bench seating, and flat screen TVs to catch the live sports.
The beer garden has had a complete overhaul, complete with new communal furniture, awnings for weather protection, and fresh greenery – perfect for wrapped up catch-ups in winter and chilled drinks in summer.
A value-led cocktail list and menu offering are sure to be popular with the locals.
While pub classics remain on offer, such as chicken parma, fish & chips, steaks and epic burgers like The Hawthorn with double beef & bacon, there’s some newbies too. Student-friendly options include garlic & mozzarella cob loaf, mac & cheese bites and homemade sausage rolls.
Mates can enjoy the ultimate pub meal experience with the shared feasts – including Whole Fried Chicken & Sides, Whole Rack of Ribs & Sides and the Mixed Grill Platter.
The $15 cocktail list includes all the classics to keep guests happy, such as Espresso Martini, Negroni, Margarita and Aperol Spritz.
With a daily happy hour, live music and sports, a variety of pub specials* including Steak Night, Parma Night, Sunday Roast and more, there’s something on for everyone.
Of course, it wouldn’t be The Hawthorn without the return of the infamous Tightarse Tuesdays.* It will once again be Hawthorn’s favourite local party destination for mates to get together every Tuesday for cheap drinks, epic tunes and good times.
The Hawthorn Hotel has been engrained in the local community for decades, and the return of the venue will leverage off the history it has behind it. Proudly aligning with Swinburne University, The Hawthorn will work to help support local groups and associations within the organisation, as well as local sporting clubs and community groups.
