“LOCATION!….LOCATION!….LOCATION!” is the usual cat call for prime real-estate in Melbourne, but in this instance it refers to the home of the popular venue called The Rising Sun Hotel….affectionately known as “TheRiser.” Found gracing a tree-studded boulevard in Palmerston Crescents South Melbourne, “The Riser” sits proudly in a growing village of trendy newcomers and hosts a range of clients for meals and music from four corners of the world. The location is perfect for those would like to grab a pub meal after a visit to Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre, locally known as MSAC which is situated just around the corner. It also borders the wonderful Albert Park Lake where visitors to our fine city gather for a BBQ or a long overdue get together with family.  Health conscious athletes use the lake as a fitness track and regularly run laps before heading to “The Riser” for a quick coffee and chat with friends. The staff understand the needs of the locals and the visitors to the area, and accommodate all their needs and fancies with a range of snacks and beverages, as well as an extensive menu to satisfy any appetite. Nearby Trams and buses provide quick travel to the city and all inner and outer suburbs. The Rising Sun Hotel is a mere 10-15minute walk from Albert Park, and is an outstanding option for delicious food and drinks after a great workout.
