Much more than your local neighbourhood pub, Fitzroy’s Grumpy’s Green is an eco-friendly lounge and bar, putting some fun in sustainability. Food is based on share plates, pizzas and burgers, but with all products sourced from around Victoria, this is regional fare at its best. After dinner, live music with nightly themes are hosted, or just sit-back in the courtyard with a local wine or beer.

On Smith Street, close to the corner of Gertrude Street.

Walk into Grumpy’s Green and it feels like it could be any one of the plethora of bars and restaurants on Smith Street. It has a warm, friendly ambience, good food on offer and great beers on tap. But this eatery, with its casual loungey pub vibe, will enable you to eat, drink and save the world at the same time. Grumpy’s Green is dedicated to reducing its carbon footprint, so everything you put in your mouth or use in this restaurant has been carefully considered for its impact on the environment. From the vegetarian menu with local, organic and seasonal produce to the tank water for the toilets and soy candles for the tables, the aim is to tread lightly on the earth. It also gives a warm feeling inside to consult the beer options (with “beer miles” listed beside them) and realise how many good choices there are so close to home.

Food-wise, Grumpy’s also more than caters to the tastebuds. Start with the chickpea battered vegetables with chilli soy dipping sauce or Nepalese-style onion and capsicum fritters. Main items might include spicy chickpea tortillas or the chilli tofu burger, while the pizza menu also offers up some delicious choices such as pesto, fetta, rocket and pear or mushroom, capsicum and jalapeno with spicy tomato and chilli. The $7 pizzas make Tuesday nights a winner, but all of the items on the menu are reasonably priced and there is a choice of smaller, snacky dishes or larger main meals. There are some great spots at the back of the courtyard. Alternatively you can check out the discreet upstairs booths from which you can overlook the general populace while still feeling hidden away.
