If you’re happy, we’re happy. It’s pretty simple.
We are Concrete Boots – your friendly neighbourhood bar – where local legends have their faithful bentwood stool and newcomers are treated to twelve rotating taps, a tight cocktail list and some of the best bloody (and not so bloody) burgers in Melbourne.
Our food menu proudly satisfies both ravenous vegans and protein-pounders alike. Our draught offerings – fit for lager drinkers and crafty connoisseurs, while our wine list is lovingly local.
Making home on the former site of Dizzy’s Jazz Club, owner/operator Andrew Reed (Barnone, Kettle Black, Speakeasy), has extracted the bebop and injected the hip-hop, giving the Burnley side of Richmond something more than parmas, punting and shitty traffic.
“It all came about because I basically wanted to do what I liked and what my mates liked. The kinda stuff that makes myself and my mates happy.”
With a namesake inspired by Melbourne’s turn-of-the-century gangster past (the adjacent old bank even bearing bygone-era bullet holes), Concrete Boots serves up what’s quality and what’s local. Curated and thoughtful, the food and beverage offerings are Victorian focused – from the Healesville gins, to the Peninsular wines, to the Gippsland beef.
So, come by – get your lips around an Australian Negroni, your ears around some Tribe Called Quest and your arse around a comfy seat.
Can you kick it? Yes, you can.
