Young and Jackson Hotel


Young and Jackson Hotel was first licensed as the Princes Bridge Hotel in 1861 comprising the corner bar and 21 hotel rooms above. By 1921 the hotel had expanded across the neighbouring bluestone warehouses and significant renovations were done on both interior and exterior to make a cohesive facade. Renovated again in 2000, the interior was updated to its current format.

What's On

Small tours of the venue will be presented by the Y&J ambassador. Learn about the site’s history, Melbourne’s brewing history, the early days and expansion of the pub, the acquisition of Chloe (the famous nude portrait which has graced the walls of the hotel since 1909) and the impacts of the Metro tunnel program.
