The Rose has all of the trappings of an authentic Melbourne pub: The beer is cold, the big games are always on and the food is cheap and hearty. The boss of the joint is the indomitable Juanita, an Irish lass with a love of Belgian beer and no time for your shit. There are kids books on the shelf in the hall and posters of the long-defunct Fitzroy Lions football club on the wall, both harking back to a time when the neighborhood pub was a gathering place for the local community. In this neck of the woods, The Rose is still home.
