Best North Melbourne Bars and Pubs


Joe Taylor began as a pop-up bar in the summer of 2013. Named for the original sign still sitting above the doorway – an old tailor in the early 1900s – it sits between pizza restaurant Oskar and café Hot Poppy on Errol Street in North Melbourne.

Joe Taylor is a beautiful bar and restaurant with shelves stocked with almost any kind of drink you can imagine. The small staff is from impressive backgrounds – The Toff, Cookie, Ferdydurke – some are also competition bartenders.
