A Dive Bar From East 9th Brewing Co Has Opened Up…

The Urban List covers Doss Blockos ‘D’ & Hotel Animal:

Hotel Animal Dive Bar and Grill is the new dive bar in Melbourne’s CBD serving up killer burgers and the newly released Doss Blockos D Draft on tap. The bar is a new collaboration between hospo veteran Damian Little (Bar Humbug) and East 9th Brewing’s Doss Blockos beer brand.

The bar is in the former Great Western Hotel on King Street, but it’s been reimagined with a far grittier fit out thanks to designer Josh Lefers—the designer behind Storyville and the new mega-venue Ballers Clubhouse. The team has a short-term lease before the site gets redeveloped in 2022, so they’re repping a pseudo pop-up, ‘anything goes’ vibe. The venue salutes the late greats of rock’n’roll, from Kurt Cobain to Amy Winehouse and Janice Joplin, with literal shrines dotted around the space to each artist.
