Eat

You will not starve for dining choices in Footscray! Famous for our Vietnamese, Ethiopian, Chinese and Italian restaurants there is always a new café or restaurant to try. Current FCAC staff favourites include:

Happy River Café (located at FCAC). The perfect spot to have a pre-show coffee or glass of wine. Take a seat inside, at the window to enjoy a spectacular view of the Maribyrnong River and the city beyond.

Addis Abeba Ethiopian Restaurant (226 Nicholson Street, Footscray). Run by Bitsat and Tesfaye, the food is delicious. Bitsat and Tesfaye are amazing artists, Bitsat a famous jazz singer and Tesfaye, a writer.

Pho Hung Vuong Saigon  (128 Hopkins Street, Footscray). There is no shortage of Pho places in Footscray and picking a favourite is nearly impossible, but this place is always reliable, tasty and offers very fast service. Ask for extra chilli.

Drink

New places in Footscray to have a post-show drink are opening up all the time. The FCAC Summer bar in the Roslyn Smorgon Gallery is open throughout February and is the perfect place to meet before a show and enjoy the latest contemporary art exhibition. Check our calendar for information.

The Reverence Hotel (28 Napier Street, Footscray). The locals’ favourite, The Rev is the centre of live music in the west. While famous for their hardcore and punk following, you can also drop by anytime for a quiet beer and a taste of their amazing Mexican-inspired menu. Taco Tuesday offers $3 tacos and $3 Mexican beers, but arrive early if you want a seat.

Back Alley Sally’s (4 Yewers Street, Footscray) Just around the corner from FCAC, Back Alley Sally’s opens late and serves delicious pizzas from their sister shop Slice Girls West.

Little Foot Bar (223 Barkly St, Footscray)
