Jimmy Watson's Wine Bar & Restaurant

Jimmy Watson's is one of Melbourne's first wine bars and is home of the famous Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy.

It all began in the 1930s, when Jimmy Watson first opened this iconic Lygon Street wine bar. Dine in the courtyard or enjoy drinks in the rooftop bar: Wolf's Lair.

The bistro-style menu features hearty pork sausages on mash and splash-out specialities such as well-aged porterhouse or market-fresh fish. Choose the pasta of the day or order a seafood or chorizo pizza and Leave room for dessert, with options changing daily.

For more than 90 years, the original proprietor's son and grandson continue Jimmy Watson's legendary status.

The stunning building, designed by Robin Boyd, features soaring ceilings, whitewashed walls and terracotta tiles. Traditionally frequented by Melbourne University types and Carlton locals, Jimmy Watson's now draws regulars from all over.
