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.

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 a game of Giant Chess, or Giant Jenga in the 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.

Brunch ~ Salads ~ Burgers ~ Pizzas ~ Classics ~ Kids Menu

We want you to feel at home when you walk through our doors and nothing says comfort like a Parma beside the fire while watching the Footy in winter or enjoying a burger in the sun during the warmer months. Don’t think we’re only about the classics though, with a range of immaculate pasta selections and vegetarian/ vegan friendly options we’ve got something for everyone and anyone.


Tap Beer ~ Cocktails ~ Spirits ~ Coffee

Our tap beer selection is cold and we have an un-pretentious wine selection catered from our in house wine guy.  If you’re looking for something a little more glamourous try one of our in house specialty cocktails or let us know what your favourite classic is and we’ll whip it right up for you.
