On sunny days we open our big wide windows making the Coventry bar the perfect indoor/outdoor experience. Make yourself at home on our big leather sofas in front of our big warm open fireplace.

outside dining


Enjoy casual drinks and meals on our big wooden tables. This is the best spot in South Melbourne for relaxing, soaking up the sun and plenty of people watching especially on market days.

Sky Lounge


Encompassing the top level and corner position of the George, the sky lounge undoubtedly the best city views and afternoon sun in south Melbourne. Private bathrooms, bar, connecting lounge and balcony. The Sky Lounge caters for up to 120 people. This is the newest number one function destination in South Melbourne.



The courtyard is a George hotel secret. As the original hotel stables they have been opened up and converted into the charming and alluring courtyard space it is today. Great for escaping the every day hustle and bustle, the courtyard is ideal for social catch ups, gourmet BBQ’s or your next corporate or private event.



 The George room is one of our formal dining spaces. This ambient dining room has a separate bar, comfortable leather bench seating, big open fire place and an ornate ceiling making this room another of our brilliant dining and function spaces. Large TV in this room. The George Room can seat 50, or 60 standing or 180 people if you extend your function through to the court yard.

The Dog Room


The less formal ‘Dog’ room is another great dining spot. The Full-length animal covered wallpaper is fun and vibrant. Tables span from one end of the room to the other, making this is a great dining room alternative to the bar area and gives a whole new meaning to the ‘Long Lunch’. Ideal for large work or party groups.
