The Union Hotel Newtown

The Union Hotel Newtown has been transformed to showcase a world-class back bar and restaurant, whilst maintaining the unique homely character the pub has always known.

The front bar, with its large bench seats, is perfect for groups. Shoot some pool, grab a paddle, watch all the big events on our plasma screens, or settle in for a night of live and local music.

The distinctly different light-filled back area, with its sophisticated cocktail lounges and adjoining heated courtyards creates a relaxed an informal dining experience. Our intimate lounge areas are perfect for dinner for two, large groups, business lunches or an early family feast.

Big Arties -The Union Hotel’s eatery – has something for everyone and great value pub fare.

Our Bar

The Union Hotel holds 22, yes…22 TAPS!, hosting a rotating list of every beer on, and off, the spectrum. With friendly, knowledgeable staff happy to guide you through the hoppy world of craft beer.

When it comes to full-throated support of craft beers, few do it better than the Union Hotel in Newtown. In 2015, the pub’s 22 taps played host to over 300 different brews. They’re also packing an impressive list of 24 gins dominated by Australian distillers too. If juniper spirits aren’t your jam they’ve also got 35 whiskies on the go.

The Union brings people together and for all the right reasons. They have one of the best beer selections in the city, an ace bistro, pool tables, live music, and a devoted local fan base that loves them for it.

From December 2015 we brought our kitchen operation in house. Over the years we’ve refined the menu to a fine balance of meat-heavy meals, with a compliment of fresh salads and delicious vegetarian options. Drawing influence from the great diners of Chicago and New York, we’re serving staple Australia and American themed sandwiches and burgers. The menu is constantly evolving, and we’re happy to hear your feedback and opinion.
