No one knows how to drink like the Irish do and old traditional Bridie O'Reilly's (or Bridies, as it is known to some) is no exception. Formerly an old Presbyterian church with traditional windows still attached, Bridies is now a haven to a wide variety of thirsty Chapel St dwellers. The venue is perfect for music lovers, featuring live bands Wednesday through to Sunday. Sports lovers are also catered for here with seven of the biggest plasmas screening competitive offerings. Foodies, too, can feel at home here with delicious pies and parmas favourites of the house.

Bridey O'Reillys Review


Review By Naomi Snell

No one knows how to drink like the Irish do and old traditional Bridie O'Reilly's (or Bridies, as it is known to some) is no exception. Formerly an old Presbyterian church with traditional windows still attached, Bridies is now a haven to a wide variety of thirsty Chapel St dwellers. The venue is perfect for music lovers, featuring live bands Wednesday through to Sunday. Sports lovers are also catered for here with seven of the biggest plasmas screening competitive offerings. Foodies, too, can feel at home here with delicious pies and parmas favourites of the house.

The decor is traditionally Irish with groups of tables inside and out and booths situated in close proximity to the bar, making more serious drinking easily achieved. Outdoor heaters are in place and an indoor fire makes Bridies exceptionally cosy and appealing in the colder winter months.

The downstairs has a chilled out atmosphere whilst upstairs boasts live music and is where the party is really at. With a large dancefloor and bar up there, party lovers can dance the night away with other fun loving people up for an Irish night out. A DJ plays from 10pm followed by a live band. On Sundays, traditional Irish music plays at Bridies making Sunday sessions even more appealing.

The dress code here is neat-casual but if you're in for a big Friday or Saturday night, try and wear something a bit cuter. A nice dress with sweet flats is on the highly recommended for the girls, whilst the boys can get away with a good pair of jeans and a collared shirt.

Good for the budget, Bridies has no cover charge so you can save your hard-earned cash for drinking. Pints of Guiness are $9 and traditional pots start at $4.10.

The crowd here is diverse and suitable for all ages. The patronage includes professionals, tradies, uni students and backpackers so you never know who you will end up meeting on a big one. A favourite place for sailors and defence force personnel, I advise you not to party with them for fear of being lead to far astray... but alas that is another story. Party at Bridies and go home speaking Irish and walking like a leprechaun...it's the best place in Melbourne to do it!
