In a salute to its original pub days as Hotel Central in the 1960's, Half Moon has extended and opened its Main Bar to celebrate the essence of the ultimate urban pub. Perch at the beautiful 25 metre Black Butt timber bar and enjoy a wine from the extraordinary list of 80 quality varieties and 35 available by the glass, or one of 16 exceptional craft beers carefully selected from the finest breweries around the Australia.

Watch televised broadcasts of major sports events on the built in plasma screens or settle in for the afternoon around the fireplace in the cooler months. Alternatively find a spot with friends in the Greg Palmer landscaped beer garden beneath the 2 storey high, retractable ceiling and Melbourne’s first state of the art air mist cooling system that ensures you remain comfortable all year round. All this while you listen to the DJ spinning tunes on the decks beneath the recycled timber slatted open air staircase and walkway.


Connected to the airy courtyard by the original exposed brick wall, the Main Dining Room provides a fantastic relaxed dining setting. Half Moon specialises in true pub fare with a sophisticated but not pretentious edge prepared by our talented chef's.

Our Chef insists on using only the freshest, premium quality, local and regional ingredients and maintaining the essence of the relaxed ritual that is pub dining. The food at Half Moon is demonstrative of the kind of meal one craves with a pot of the nation’s finest ale or perhaps a bottle of fantastic wine, best shared with friends accompanied by a side of great conversation.
