HOT: Temperance Hotel, 426 Chapel St, South Yarra

Temperance Hotel Chapel St South Yarra Melbourne Hot or Not review

The Temperance Hotel is a pub dressed up in stiletto heels, fake tan and disco bling.

In the heart of Chapel Street South Yarra, it’s frequented by sleekly groomed youngsters who all kind of look the same to me, and hence I’ve never given it a second glance. However if you can look past the perfect blonde tresses and Industrie t-shirts you’ll find a multi-room interior which is best described as Victorian pub-meets-mirrorball, a friendly British-manned bar and a reasonably priced menu of wood-fired pizzas and pub classics.

On the day Poppy (from the blog Poppy Gets a Life) and I went for a casual blog-fuelled dinner, they were offering pizza and a glass of house wine for $12. The pizzas were surprisingly good, with the thin crisp bases still managing to support a generous amount of topping.

We shared a mushroom, olive, goats cheese and pumpkin pizza ($16) and a Moroccan beef, buffalo mozzarella and basil pizza ($17), both of which came out oozing cheese on individual wooden paddles.

If you’re looking for a casual place to hang out in South Yarra (even if you don’t fit the South Yarra mould), catch up with friends for a drink and munch on some good-value non-confrontational pub grub, then the Temperance Hotel is worth a try.

  1. My partner has dealings with these guys and loves the place. We’ve had a function in there for Freelancer Unplugged which was fab and had pizzas beforehand. They are super yummy indeed and great value!
    .-= Esz´s last blog ..Bugger. =-.

  2. Thanks for the heads up, Joyce. Will pop in the next time I go shopping in Chapel St. Opened around Jan 2009?Has it really been that long since I’ve been to Chapel St?!

  3. It might be time to review this “hot” rating!
    The Temperance has really gone downhill in the last 18 months. Bad food, poor service and don’t get me started on the crowd.

    • I went to the Temperance Hotel for the first time over Queens Birthday Weekend, didn’t eat, but the food looked good.
      Very crowded. Le Soul were great
