Relax Riverside

Located next door to DFO South Wharf we have the best views of the Melbourne CBD from our riverside garden and are the perfect pit stop to refuel after a long day of shopping.  Enjoy all your pub classics with a modern twist to revive all your old favourites.

In our riverside garden take advantage of our 3 metre high mega screen and 225 square metre purpose built marquee making the space all weather and COVID safe.

The vibe is laid back vibe and our staff friendly are welcoming to all so it is perfect for the whole family, including your dog.  We don’t like to take ourselves too seriously and are always up for some sun in our beer garden.

Whether it’s for a date on a cold winter night and you want to cuddle up next to our fires or the suns out and you’re joining friends, Common Man is the place to meet.
