Harlow Richmond 1

There’s a new pub opening in Richmond called Harlow.

It used to be the Great Britain Hotel and has taken over the place, keeping the basement bar and dining area, courtyard, deck and intimate little nooks for all your canoodling needs.

Harlow is dog friendly, which is great news for Melbourne pub lovers. Just don’t bring them on Friday and Saturday nights as the DJs take to the decks to really turn things up.

Harlow’s got a ground floor bar and dining area, split-level courtyard with timber decking, pergolas, festoon lighting and street art feature walls that leads to the basement bar, neon signs and all.

In the kitchen, Telina Menzies is executive chef and has designed a pub menu that’s a little bit classic with a modern twist.

It touts stuff like duck and bacon sausage rolls, mini crab donuts and sticky Jack Daniels and Cola pork ribs, as well as a steak sanga, served with maple bacon and bloody good BBQ sauce, topped with Swiss Cheese. It goes on.

The cocktail menu will be broken down in three sections – hip hop, pop and heavy metal, with cocktails such as Boyz-N-The-Hood, made with Jack Daniels, Apple Jack, Fireball and apple juice; California Girls, made with citrus vodka, peach liqueur, pinot gris, OJ and egg white and Voodoo People, made white rum, spiced rum, orgeat and fruit juice set to feature.

Harlow is set to open doors in mid-December.
