Where to Watch the AFL Finals in Chapel Precinct

By September 11, 2019Drink, Eat, Events

So, it’s footy finals time, when the hell did that happen? Melbourne is a city that prides itself on two things; footy and food so get out and enjoy both of these spectacular things in the Chapel Street Precinct.

If you’re not heading to The G this year and you’re on the hunt for a spot to watch the game with your crew, check out where the beverages will be bottomless, the food will be top notch and the screens will be airing the greatest sport in the world (to some…).

Usually reserved for American Sports – The Silverlake Social are Aussie’ing it up! Free cork hats and vegemite for everyone! Nah, just kidding – but they are switching their screens to our beautiful game for live and loud coverage. They’ve teamed up with Stomping Ground Brewery to bring you $9 Little Foot IPA on both Friday and Saturday. Doors open at 12 pm.

Book free admission tickets, here or book a table on reservations@silverlakesocial.com.au.

198 Chapel St, Prahran

Kick off the party at South Yarra’s hottest rooftop. The Osborne Rooftop and Bar are opening doors from 11 am on game day, so rally your mates together for six screens, two levels and live entertainment pre-match, half time & post match. For the more fancy they’re offering a two-course meal with a three-hour beverage package ($125 per person) available by contacting the venue directly on hello@theosborne.com.au.

119 Commercial Rd, South Yarra

Whether you’ll be backing your own team or the underdog, we know all Melbournians care about on Grand Final Day is big screens, free flowing drinks, good old fashioned footy food and a comfortable space to either support or heckle loudly. The Emerson will be providing all the above and in true Emerson style the party won’t stop when the final siren goes off.

$65 will get you a beverage package from first bounce to final siren and $20 will get you food and snack pack’s just like at The G. Limited VIP booths available. Tickets are essential and just like every other year they’ll sell out quickly so get your game plan sorted out now.

Purchase tickets here.

141-145 Commercial Rd, South Yarra

Spend Grand Final weekend with The Smith and catch all of the clash action in the Atrium. There’ll be three screens showing the game so it’s promising every seat in the bar will have a front-row view. We recommend you kick off your long weekend right and head in for their Thursday steak night ($18 250g Porterhouse) and DJs from 7 pm. 

Book here.

213-219 High St, Prahran

Already one of the best sports bars on Chapel Street, they’re bringing an A Game for AFL Finals. There’s screens galore, Furphy beer mega jugs and drink specials all weekend too. All your AFL finals needs covered and DJs from 6 pm on the big day. There’s no cover charge either, so first in best dressed.

426 Chapel St, South Yarra

Join the GF Day party at Morris Jones with $15 white chocolate passionfruit martinis from 12 pm to 6 pm. Plus $59 Sip and Sushi – all you can eat and drink for 2 hours – 12 pm and 2:30 pm seatings are available. Happy Hours from 4 pm to 7 pm, DJs will be spinning RnB from 6 pm and most importantly, they’ll be three big screens showing all the action.

163 Chapel St, Windsor

Hosting the footy finals at home this year? There’s a few things you simply can’t afford to get wrong. Is the TV sound in good nick? Are the beers ice cold? And, are there hot pies at your guests constant disposal? Footy and pies go hand in hand so look no further than Alison’s Bread for all your footy food needs. Pre order your pies by Wednesday so they’re ready to go on D Day or grab them hot on game day, if you’re in a last minute rush! ‘Cause there’s nothing more footy than a burnt tongue from a blasting hot pie.

180 Commercial Rd, Prahran (entrance on Izett Street)

Join Prahran Hotel for the best day of the year. Their public bar is open for walk ins, first in best dressed from 12 pm. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner bookings and there’s two canapé and beverage packages to choose from. Both for $85 per person. Post siren the fun ain’t over with 2 for $20 cocktails in the Garden Bar from 7 pm to 10 pm. Pick from a Cosmopolitan, Margarita, French Martini or Espresso Martini. 

82 High St, Windsor

Grand Final Day at Carpe Diem means no clean up on Sunday, $8 pints, sparkling and spirits and three big screens. Watching the game at home means a trashed house on Sunday, an empty fridge, a raided esky, a crammed lounge room and nudie runs (no thank you). There’ll also be a pork spit roast in the Carpe Diem Palms Courtyard, the best courtyard in Prahran. These guys are pulling out all the stops.

194 Commercial Rd, Prahran

More consistent than Dustin Martin for a great spot to watch any major sporting event, The Union Hotel will be next level for this years’ final. We’re talking seven big screens and epic sound that’ll have you feeling like you’re at The G. $100 per person will get you and your friends four hours of Bottomless Booze and yummy snacks. Bookings essential.
