NileGuide Expert tip:

The $1 tacos on Thursdays hit the spot!


Known as the most authentic Irish pub in town (and Melbourne has a few faux ones), the real highlight of the year is St Patrick's Day, when thousands come to party in the park opposite it. There is even a tent built especially for those that have had 100 pints of Guinness at the pub. Built in 1884, and a regular haunt with university students, the "Dan" plays host to a myriad of events during the week, such as open mic nights, Melbourne's longest pub poetry session, trivia competitions and the infamous $1 tacos on Thursdays. Note they are vegetarian tacos for those that crave meat. Sunday's are ideal for chilling with free acoustic music in the afternoon, but overall the Dan is an unpretentious place with something always going on to entertain.
