Littlefoot is a bar in Footscray with a strong sense of place, a love of community and a desire to increase our environment’s happiness quota while minimising our footprint. Our extensive bar list is primarily Australian and we source foodstuffs from local makers, markets, delis and micro farmers wherever possible. The cultural diversity of our neighbourhood inspires and informs our offering. We call it “cultural fusion” and we’re grateful for every experience, taste and sensation.
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 back room is a quieter space with booths and moody lighting. There’s no table bookings but you can reserve the back room for events.
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. On Wiener Wednesdays you can get delicious $5 hot dogs as well as the regular menu. On Mondays the kitchen is closed but you can order in food from one of our excellent neighbouring eateries. Tasty bar snack nibbles are always available.
DJ’s generally perform Fri-Sat and live musicians on Sundays. Follow our Facebook Events for details. Interested performers 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.
You can reserve the back room for events of around 50 pax (leaving the front bar open to other patrons). Catering menus are available. Talk to our events manager Claire. We are currently building our new courtyard and when this is ready it will be available as a private event space!
