Black Hatt

Situated in the backstreets of Geelong, Black Hatt is a hub of entertainment and one of the cities best kept secrets. With friendly staff and extensive opening hours, Black Hatt is the kind of venue that after your first visit you’ll find yourself returning to at all hours of the day.
Boasting a sophisticated feel inside, rich with history of the late 1800s venue, several years ago saw the addition of the new beer garden. Located conveniently adjacent to the main room, it makes it the perfect spot to sit with friends, have a drink and watch the live bands who perform on Friday and Saturday nights.
Adding to the appeal of the beer garden is its disabled accessibility, protection from the weather and heating and cooling options. There are several seating choices and privacy around the corner should you want to escape the excitement of inside.
When bands aren’t taking up the stage in the main room, there’s also a mechanical bull, affectionately known as Henry, that comes out on occasion for the ultimate challenge. The venue also has a jukebox, pool table and ATM located on site. Happy hour is on Friday night from 5-7pm as is the meat raffle with all proceeds from the raffle going towards the Royal Children’s Hospital. The annual Royal Children’s Hospital fundraiser is also coming up, which involves live music, a hot rod and bike show all day and all night at Black Hatt raising money for the hospital.
With various beers on tap and in the fridge, the only thing that’s missing is a dish to eat alongside it…though it won’t be long until that’s a reality as a menu with a difference is soon to hit the venue.
