The Alexandria Hotel, affectionately known as "The Alex" and loved for its big, leafy beer garden, has now reopened in part. 

The boozer was snapped up by Merivale back in 2015 but has been left dormant ever since. Now, Merivale has revealed plans to open up the beer garden while renovations of the greater pub kick-off.

Dubbed "Backyard at The Alex", it's inspired by the backyard—which is arguably the pinnacle of Aussie culture in the summertime. The sprawling pop-up outdoor venue will feature resident food trucks (with the Wholly Schnit schnitzel truck on the lineup first), as well as a pop-up Merivale kitchen serving pub classics, beer on tap, classic cocktails, and a selection of wine.

Bring your crew and you're four-legged pals (The Alex is dog-friendly!), pull up a spot on the long communal tables or bleachers around the basketball court, and soak up the summer vibes with live music and DJs on the tunes.
