South Melbourne's Palace Hotel is home to Billy, the ultimate pub dog. Famed for his successful legal campaign to gain access to his former pub home when dog-unfriendly laws shut him out, this affable Staffy has since become a poster boy for dogs in pubs. His cheery brown and white features adorn the Palace logo, and a message from Billy on the blackboard reminds customers to enjoy 'happy butt sniffing.'
The vibe in this friendly community gathering place echoes Billy's cheery approach to life. Here you'll find a a craft beer-loving crowd who also enjoy their pool, sports on TV, music and an unfailingly warm welcome from Billy and his team of humans.
Proudly pooch friendly (in its outdoor areas), The Palace is also AFL obsessed, with eight TVs ensuring nobody misses a minute of their team's highs and lows. Come on in, say hi to Billy, and settle down with a Stone & Wood beer to celebrate Bars March in a place with a deep devotion to doggies.
