CITIZEN brought to you by the owners of Melbourne Public and previous owners of The Darcy Group. 


A Japanese influenced bar focused on Good Beer, Good Food and Good Times. 


With a menu that’s fun to share including over 25 gins and whiskeys, and a unique cocktail list. We have created a space for our favourite CITIZENS to sip, share and snack in South Wharf.


Japan have been serving Asahi Super Dry as a super cold beer, where unlike any other beer, it goes into a secondary chilling plate and served at minus 2.2 degrees celsius. CITIZEN is the only venue in Australia to have the super cold beer chilled at this temperature. 

“It’s one of the cleanest and easiest drinking lagers in the world”

Richard Chatfield, Managing Director.

“CITIZEN had a previous life as a café but we felt that the corner site was under-utilised and dark at night.


We wanted to activate the space as a breakfast, lunch and dinner destination, welcoming people to South Wharf. 


Our objective was to create a place with great atmosphere, premium beverage and Asian food, inspired by the CITIZENS of South Wharf. Whatever you’re here for; a conference, shopping or staying in a local hotel, CITIZEN will provide a much needed place to stop sit and watch the South Wharf world go by. 


Come for the drinks, stay and share some amazing food and great tunes.” 

Alysha Darcy, Founder.
