Pub
Melbourne is home to some of the best and most innovative bars and restaurants in the country, and Concrete Boots Bar in Richmond is up there with the best of them. Located on Burnley Street, this cosy bar specialises in tipples like the smokey joe made with house smoked scotch, maple syrup and bitters for those with a penchant for the hard stuff, as well as the presto caipirinha with ink gin, fresh lime and cucumber or Australian negroni with four pillars gin, maidenii vermouth and red okar amaro. All this and more alongside an extensive tap list will certainly require some of their tasty nibbles or burgers to soak it all up and we recommend going for the popcorn chicken, boots snack pack or jalapeno poppers to start, before indulging in one of their many mouthwatering burgers. Bookings are essential.

Hi Jsmada, thanks for the feedback and sorry about your experience. I can't find your booking and would like to know some more about what happened so I can stop it from happening again. Would you mind sending an email via our website or giving me a call? I'll make it up to you. Post-COVID-lockdown it's been very difficult finding staff and training up the ones I have hired so any feedback helps so much. Thanks in advance, Andrew

I usually love concrete bar. However the manager or whoever the man with the man bun was was extremly disrespectful to our group. When paying the bill he accused my friend of being on MDMA and was extremly rude. first off we had not had MDMA and who speaks to customers that way? we had all spent at least $50 each on cocktails and spent on food ontop of that. I hoenstly question coming back after the condescending and disrespctful experience with the manbun man. However female waitors were BEAUTIFUL AND KIND.

Hey there, I'm sincerely sorry about that. I was having a joke and thought it was funny but it obviously wasn’t. I’ll pull my head in. 😔 Thanks for letting me know. I hope that I didn’t ruin your night. If you come back in I’ll shout you a drink. - Andrew - man-bun manager.

We were waiting over 40 minutes for our drinks and we were the only people in the bar.

When they then realised they had forgotten our order they brought them over with no apology. A sorry would of gone a long way.

Good solid food choices for everyone, great range of beers, ciders, wines, and cocktails. Nice outdoor area and a great indoor area to boot. Good times were had by all.

Make sure to contact the bar and ask if you're inside or outside. We didn't get notified and were seating outside in the rain

Hi Phil, sorry about the weather. I hope it didn't ruin your night! Due to COVID restrictions we were only allowed 10 people inside. We have do have it noted in the booking information when guests book. We'd love it if OpenTable could put it in the confirmation messages too but alas this feature is not available yet. We have an awning and more umbrellas outside now. Hopefully see you soon. - Andrew
