Firs licensed in 1865, The Standard Hotel is located in bohemian Fitzroy, nestled in the back streets away from the iconic Brunswick Street. Its deep history is steeped within the nature of Fitzroy, and is a highlight of the many pubs in the area, some of which are the longest surviving in Australia. Like many of its Fitzroy brethren, the hotel prides itself on its mixture of locals, regulars and guests from outside the area, its intrinsic front bar belies its establishment within a tight knit residential area as does its ole style early closing times and consideration of the neighbours nearby. The pub has a tradition of live music, whilst not being a music venue persay. The chances are that if there is live music it may have a country tinge to it.
