Littlefoot was born in 2015 from the love of two locals for their beautiful, quirky, colourful neighbourhood and community. At the time there were few places in Footscray to go after dark so… “If we make a bar, we’ll never need to leave the hood!”
The dream was to create a gorgeous venue that would be a safe haven for all kinds of people – inclusive, welcoming, friendly, respectful, and FUN. A place where the community could connect and make memories together.
Littlefoot means Little Footscray.
Nearly a decade down the track and we’re so proud of what we’ve created and grateful to everyone who’s been on the journey with us.
We pay our respect to the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Bunurong peoples of the Kulin Nation and acknowledge that we are on their unceded, traditional lands.
Our Food & Drinks
Our food is centred on Italian cooking from the heart, and there’s a range of small plates for sharing and more substantial dishes.
We love our cocktails and make everything by hand. There’s a small but excellent wine list, many beer options (mainly craft) in bottles and on 6 taps, and an excellent back bar of spirits. We also support non-alcoholic drinking with a range of options.
We aim to reduce our environmental footprint by being smart with our menu to reduce waste, and by buying locally as much as possible.
The front bar (high seating) and lounge (low seating) are fully accessible by the front door.
The first set of toilets (down a corridor from the lounge) are all-gender and include a fully accessible toilet plus an ambulant toilet. The second set of toilets (near the courtyard) are all-gender but not ambulant or wheelchair accessible.
The courtyard is accessed via a corridor with a fixed ramp at the end, then another corridor with a step down at the end – however we also have a portable ramp which can easily be put in place here. A gate leads from the courtyard into the Popup beer garden and car park.
The Popup beer garden can also be accessed via the car park at the rear of the premises.
Lighting is generally dim throughout and there’s no strobe lights but we do have flashing disco lights in the front bar when DJs are on (usually after 9pm).
Sound levels are generally at low to medium levels except during DJs who play louder for dancing – but (hopefully) not so loud you have to yell to be heard.
Community is everything to us.
We support our staff and patrons to ensure no-one is harassed or discriminated against because of their gender ID, sexuality, ethnicity, ability or religion.
Everyone who walks through the door has a right to peaceably enjoy the space, and intimidating or antisocial behaviour is never ok.
If you ever do feel uncomfortable or unsafe, please let any of the staff know and we will help you. Our management team are Stuart, Devon and Callum FOH and chef Sergio in the kitchen.
The only discrimination we practise is against a**hole behaviour. Doesn’t matter who you are, if you’re aggressive or bigoted this is not your place.
