Hyperlocal news about Melbourne's first suburb: Fitzroy 3065

Lot 347 craft beer bar coming soon to Smith St


This has been somewhat confusing. Two new beer related businesses will apparently open side by side on Smith St soon. A craft beer bar called Two Row, by the owners of the Slowbeer craft beer shop in Richmond, will open in the new year on Smith St north of Johnston St in the space of the former Robe fashion (PLN13/0650).

Next door, something called Lot 347, another craft beer bar, is soon to open in the space of the former Monties. These are different developments, but I can’t find a planning application for 347 on the City of Yarra planning database.

I appreciate the increase in diversity and specialisation of the bars in Fitzroy, which arguably started with Little Creatures and continued with Cider House.



  1. You might want to double check your info here.., Lot 347 has nothing to do with Slowbeer. The place next door will be a bar called Two Row, which has the association with Slowbeer.

  2. I can confirm that the bar at 351 will be called Two Row — and there will be posters up in the window by this afternoon!

  3. Very excited about this – Slowbeer are amazing. Great to see the ex-Monties space being used again too!
