    The historic Prince Alfred Hotel in Richmond has stood its ground at 619 Church Street since being constructed in 1899 by German-Australian John A. B Koch, then the ex-Mayor of Richmond.

    Inspired by the European surrounds of his early years, Koch designed the two-level brick building in the Neo-Baroque style of the late 19th Century, in time allowing the Prince Alfred to become a living reminder of the history of the area.

    O’Brien Group Australia acquired the hotel in March 2007 and instigated a significant renovation of the now century-old pub and hotel. The Prince Alfred Hotel was reopened in December 2010 with its potential revived and its heritage as an iconic Melbourne building secured.

    Whilst Richmond locals keep the hinges warm, the pub runs in concert with Melbourne’s pulse. Its busiest days are the big Melbourne events of the year, such as the Boxing Day test or AFL Grand Final day, where we meet patrons from every corner of Melbourne in the venue’s magnificent outdoor courtyard beer garden.
