Opposite a grandiose Fitzroy Town Hall, sits this ever-popular pub where a mish mash of old furniture keeps patrons comfy. The small front bar is a good one for striking a 'one arm on the bar, the other clutching a pot' pose, and the adjacent pool room caters for those wanting a more comfortable seating arrangement with tables. Actually, maybe not so comfortable depending on where you are in there - the cluttered layout makes real the possibility of being nudged in the back by a pool cue. Larger tables and more chairs adorn the dining areas, and there is also seating outdoors, along the side. Service can be slow during quiet times, but the Napier boasts great food, drink and atmosphere.
First and foremost, the Old Colonial Hotel is towards the end of the Brunswick Street strip, which means that the alternative people in here are there specifically, rather than having stumbled in on accident. Which is what for us makes things more interesting, you see.
The main focus is the medium side room when bands play, which is difficult to fully see from outside. Which again, means that the people inside, are there because they know it's cool to be there.
Tucked away in the back streets, the Rose has long been a favourite of the locals. Leaning against the bar is the done thing, with both staff and fellow drinkers eager to chat about anything from the footy to what's cooking for dinner.
There's plenty of room for everyone, but all the tables will usually be gone - however a rear dining area tends to take some of the load off the front rooms. One can drink out the front, too.
Pub crawlers and mobile phone fanatics aren't welcome here, and the Standard has a few rules and regulations of this kind for punters to adhere to. Don't be alarmed though, as management's efforts to maintain a civilised environment has struck a chord with many and the Standard is a popular watering hole. The good menu, cosy environment and great beer garden might have something to do with it.
Pop in and see us. You'll find our friendly staff are waiting to take your order and pour your next drink. Enjoy a meal with family or friends, a quite drink, or get rowdy in the TAB. Come on down and say Hi! Relax with a game of Pool and a few cold ones.

The night is run as part of the Gertrude Street Sessions in conjunction with Builders Arms Hotel & like the Builders, the staff are friendly & are mostly artists or musicians from the Fitzroy area. The room holds 200 people with areas for standing or lounging & has received a warm welcome from the bands & punters with the atmosphere providing space for both relaxing & rockin’ tunes. Although the Rob Roy’s clientele has changed, the funky 70’s wallpaper has not & apart from the music, this is an aspect we are very proud of! Shows start at 9pm with the venue being open until 3am for those of us who like to kick on into the wee hours.
