There's a new bar in town.
Who is Mister Bob?
The Foundry Hotel, circa 1870, has spent almost 150 years watering the most-thirsty, feeding the hungry masses and providing a friendly smile to all who pass through the doors.
In 1989, legendary publican Bob Kuchel, sporting an illustrious career which included the Moonee Ponds Hotel, Deer Park Hotel and Richmond’s Corner Hotel grabbed hold of the Foundry reins, and along with his wife and family developed the property into Bendigo’s busiest and most dynamic family hotel property.
Fast forward 27 years, and the Kuchel family is still here (expanding ten-fold!) and so is Bobby’s legacy. Mister Bobs sports bar is the latest addition to the exceptional facilities found at The Foundry Hotel.
The Kuchel family’s vision to create a modern comfortable bar, with access to all sporting codes, TAB, great drinks and innovative sports bar themed menu, has been delivered.
Embracing the best of casual bar culture and our innate love of good times, competitive sport and team spirit, Mister Bobs is a welcoming space that the man himself, Bobby Kuchel, would be proud of.
Look for the casual throw backs in venue to times gone by, including a tribute to the hotel’s neighbour Mr William Thomas Carter (3rd Gentleman) and friends the photo taken here at the Foundry circa 1910 . The carefully crafted layers of quality, such as the provision of CUB’s latest innovation -the unpasteurised tank beer system, are mixed brilliantly with super-modern facilities.
Mister Bob’s is a place for everyone mixing old school hospitality with new technology and innovation. So relax and enjoy great time with new friends and old.
