“Melbourne’s pubs are a national treasure,” says Emily Lloyd-Tait, Time Out’s National Food and Drink Editor. “They’re part of the fabric of Melbourne life, and every time we lose one a little part of us dies.
“These awards allow us to celebrate the venues that are like our second homes – we go there to watch footy, see bands, meet friends, and eat our body weight in chips and aioli.” The awards will be given out at a ceremony/party on Monday 15 May at Foresters Pub and Dining , Collingwood. Tickets ($45) are available to the general public via timeout.com/Melbourne and Trading Plates will see you there!
