Mr McCracken Bar & Restaurant

The team behind Mr McCracken is one of Melbourne’s well-known hospitality families who own and operate beachside venues Republica, Captain Baxter and Encore Event Centre located at the St Kilda Sea Baths.

Highly acclaimed Executive Chef and owner, Matt Dawson, creates outstanding cuisine at the Essendon Fields bar and restaurant.

Located adjacent to Hyatt Place and The Australian Events Centre, Mr McCracken offers the perfect place to entertain, enjoy lunch with colleagues, catch up at your ‘local’, and the venue of choice for your ‘end of year celebrations’.

With its modern design and industrial touches, Mr McCracken’s restaurant showcases an ever changing menu using local and artisan produce flown in from King Island, Flinders Island and Merimbula to Essendon Fields Airport on a daily basis.

The bar is the place for ‘after work happy hour’ drinks, 7 days a week, and its contemporary feel is coupled with timeless style features such as the European Chalet styled outdoor fireplace, for those cooler Melbourne nights.
