About Us

How it started

Hospitality is in our DNA at the Coopers Inn and the O’Kane Family come from good pub stock. From Culgoa to Mitta Mitta, Geelong to Albury-Wodonga, our extended family has had the good fortune to own and manage some of the finest establishments in Melbourne, Victoria and beyond. From his great-grandparents to aunties, uncles, cousins and various mentors who know the pub game better than most, owner Matt O’Kane has amassed a wealth of knowledge during a hospitality career spanning 20-years. At the Coopers Inn, we have brought together this passion for the industry and a team of hand-picked staff to create a truly unique, no-nonsense pub offering in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. Come and join us for a beer, wine, parma or steak and we can tell you more!

Our Philosophy

“Old School Hospitality in the City”. That’s our mantra and we stick to it. At the Coopers Inn, we strive to offer simple, old fashioned service with a smile. While it may seem simple, it’s a model that is increasingly difficult to find these days. Nothing is too difficult for publican Matt O’Kane and his team of staff and customers always feel welcome when they walk in the door or approach the bar. We like to think of the Coopers Inn is a home away from home. Cold beer, hearty meals, memorable functions and weekly entertainment are at the core of we do. The Coopers Inn is a pub where lawyers, doctors, tradies, tourists, punters and politicians are all welcome and can often be found enjoying good times together. We pride ourselves on creating an environment that is un-pretentious and it shows!
