Westside Crawl

Beer crawl through Melbourne's hipsterfying west

Bar Josephine / Mr West Bar / Up In Smoke

From this beer-focused bar crawl in Melbourne’s inner-west, expect craft beers, barbecued meats and take-away food from local restaurants that showcase this culturally diverse and hipsterfying community.

The crawl starts at Bar Josephine – named for the owner’s Nonna – is filled with second hand furniture, a 1970s splashback behind the bar and the warm glow of happy locals.

Mr West Bar boasts 24 different libations on tap, including beer, wine and a cocktail or two. Cheese and charcuterie are served over the bar in what was once an old two dollar shop.

Slow cooked American-style food is pulled out of the big, red, $20,000 smoker that burns overnight at Up In Smoke – much to the delight of diners at this casual Footscray bar and beer garden.

Guided crawl starts at Bar Josephine at 6:00pm and concludes at Up In Smoke at 9:00pm.

This event is part of our cult classic Crawl ‘n’ Bite series. We take you to three handpicked bars or restaurants in one night to show off the best of Melbourne’s vibrant dining scene, from the iconic to the undiscovered. You’ll enjoy a bite and matched drink in each before being guided to the next.
