Moon Dog World
Located within a secret warehouse in Preston, Moon Dog World is a beer garden wonderland with a bar featuring 72 taps, a hidden tiki bar, a lagoon and waterfall and a food menu that will have you coming back for seconds. With a tropical feel to it, the location is filled with palm trees and indoor-outdoor zones so whether you’re a shade or sun lover, there’s a spot reserved for you.
After years of brewing within the confines of Duke Street in Abbotsford, brothers and owners Josh and Jake Uljans together with their mate Karl van Buuren wanted to find a bigger and better space to meet the demands of their loyal customers and have since landed this venue large enough to hold 725 people of all ages. We’re talking huge, as in eight thousand square metres huge, like a Bunnings warehouse but even more massive.
Moon Dog World has been built with the intention that you have to walk in, around and all over the space to truly discover it. “You can’t just stand in one spot and view the venue in its entirety," says designer Rohin Adams. "If you want to see it all, you have to get up and about and stop and enjoy the multiple locations for a whole new experience within the venue.”
Relaxing on a deck chair underneath blue and white striped umbrellas, guests can sip on anything from an Aperol spritz, wine or a vast selection of Moon Dog beers.
The menu features all your favourite pub meals with sharing plates as fancy as sashimi tuna and crispy pork bao with a delicious lineup of burgers and naughty desserts like peanut butter pannacotta to sink your teeth into, say no more. Whatever you choose, there will be no shortage of food as the kitchen is churning out treats seven days a week to help you soak up all that beer. On top of this, they’ve got a secret barrel-ageing room as well as event spaces for your next function or party.
Open all week from 11 am till late, Moon Dog World is shaping up to be the new urban jungle hot-spot for after-work drinks, Saturday night out with your besties or Sunday afternoon hangs with the family.
