About Us

Littlefoot is a friendly and relaxed bar in Footscray with a strong sense of place, a love of community and a desire to minimise our environmental footprint. Our extensive bar list is primarily Australian, the cultural diversity of our neighbourhood inspires and informs our offering and we source produce from local makers, markets, delis and micro farmers wherever possible.

Bar & Courtyard

Bar & Courtyard

Littlefoot likes to source locally wherever possible and that includes our extensive bar list. We have an impressive range of beautiful spirits as well as craft beers and excellent wines. And we love our cocktails, some of which draw on the eclectic local cultures for inspiration.

The front bar is the hub of activity and features a small stage for live performances. The lounge area is a quieter space with booths, low tables and our iconic “Footscray” neon light. Our gorgeous new courtyard has just opened (pics coming soon) and is nonsmoking from 6-9pm.



Our tasty menu has a balance of vegetarian and meat dishes and offers options for snacking, sharing, light eating and also feasting! If you’re vegan or gluten free you’ll see labelled options, but you can also discuss with the staff and they will help.

The kitchen is open till late from Wednesday to Sunday. It’s closed on Mondays but you can order in food from one of our excellent neighbouring eateries. Bar snack nibbles are always available.



DJ’s generally perform Fri-Sat and live musicians on Sundays. Follow our Facebook Events for details. Artists should get in touch with our music booker Steve – we favour small piece, original acts playing a “stripped back” set while DJ’s will have an upbeat or chilled, indie feel.

Private bookings

You can reserve the lounge area for events of 30-50 pax (leaving the front bar open to other patrons). Catering menus are available. Talk to our events manager Charlotte who is best contacted by email: events[at]littlefoot.com.au
