Located on the corner of Johnston and George Streets, the Rochester Hotel has a low-key, relaxed atmosphere during the week providing the ultimate home away from home for many a Fitzroy local.
Shunning pretentious furniture and over-priced cuisine, the Fitzroy institution or 'The Rochy', as its affectionately known, offers arguably the best value-for-money pub grub on the north side of the river in a comfortable, modest setting.
A pool table and some old-school games machines (not the evil kind) are also on hand to entertain at the back of the deceivingly large venue.
If you are looking for a quiet, civilized Friday or Saturday night, you may want to avoid the Rochy. Clampdown and Black Night Crash DJs play indie rock, garage, and brit-pop til 3am to the masses every weekend. However if you simply desire a cold ale in the sun on a lazy arvo, the Rochester Hotel is home to a leafy beer garden surrounded by brick walls coated in street art.
