The Hitachi train carriage was a Christmas present to the people of Melbourne in 1972. The Steel trains made in our great city changed the face of commuter transport in Melbourne and started the phase out of the “Blueys” (due to asbestos). They ran in service until April 2014 and were superseded by trains with air con because apparently the good old-fashioned window down was not enough. The Hitachi carries a lot of sentimental value to the graffiti artists of Melbourne. It was the holy grail of trains to pretty up. Our particular carriage 153M (M standing for Motor Car) started service on 9 June 1978 and ran a service coupled with 340D between Pakenham and Dandenong for a number of years before heading into regular service.
We at Easey’s have resurrected the major elements of the original interior but have added a hospitality twist to it. Come in for a ride and see for yourself.
Our menu, designed by James Hurlston, aka Jimmy's Burger's, is based on years of travelling the globe on a quest to find the world's best burgers. After thousands of research escapade's, he has turned his wealth of knowledge into a fun and delicious spread of comfort food. Jimmy utilises the highest quality produce to bring you the Easey's menu.
A Burger in a train on a rooftop is one thing, but what about a few beers to go with it? Even better, how about a few refreshing cocktails on the rooftop while the sun goes down on a warm summer evening? We have all that, and more. We are up at 11am every morning to vet you a refreshment to start your day, or even better, resurrect your day with a Bloody Mary.

Newly opened South Yarra hot spot The Emerson has just gone and done us a massive favour—by convincing burger maestro Jimmy Hurlston of Easey’s to take over their kitchen and bring some of that familiar north-eastern American inspired food to South Yarra.
‘I was approached by Mark Hinkley and John Hatherley to come up with a new menu for The Emerson Rooftop that epitomised a collaboration between our two brands. What I returned with was a North Eastern American inspired offering set in the heart of South Yarra,’ says Hurlston.
The hero of the menu will be the Reuben Sandwich. Packed with brisket pastrami, melted Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and more—it will be the dish of choice for many popping into The Emerson.
Other highlights include the Maine Lobster Roll which is full with lobster, and topped with mayonnaise and served in a buttery toasted bun, along with the lettuce tacos, oysters, and a selection of nutritious salads.
If this doesn’t sound like enough, you can head along safe in the knowledge that some of Easey’s staples will also be on hand, burgers, toasted sandwiches, and crispy chicken will also hit the menu.
Since 2012 The Bottom End has been the home of cheap eats and jammed dance floors; generally a place for you to come and get euphoric...
The upper floors of our abode are a labyrinth of dance floors, bars, corridors and adventure, and our Pub.Disco.Diner philosophy ensures we have a luring space for the masses and individuals alike.
On the ground floor is where Easey's comes into effect with it's Bottom End collaboration, where we mix our Easey's menu, with hiphop and laidback vibes, with a modest variety of on tap Beers and back shelf beverages to help you ease your way into the weekend. We are place to be if you’d like to submerge yourself in Melbourne’s closest equivalent to a Los Angeles dive bar for a round or two of beautifully incendiary drinks... You know, the kind of place where you’d find those Charles Bukowski types penning their newest edition of “The inebriated tales from behind the stick” or whatever...
In saying all this, let it be known... We're pleased to be simple.
We have beer, burgers, spirits, sports, booths, beats and smiles. Our culture of 'No fussin’, no cussin’, no hasslin’, no wrasslin' makes us certain that you're bound to have a time once you enter those doors. So go on, pass some time with us... BE Easey.
Little Jax (CBD)
New kid in the game, Little Jax is one of Melbourne’s infamous hidden bars tucked away towards the Carlton end of Swanston Street, directly across from RMIT University and right above the old Colonel, a little bar with a chic urban influence and a massive, chill, street vibe.
Teamed up with the burger man himself Jimmy Burger Hurlston, Easeys have taken over the kitchen slinging signature favourites as the Mac n Cheese Dawg, the good old Easey Cheesey and Easeys ode to In and Out, the Double Bubble.
The versatility of the venue transforms from a bar serving cocktails, beers and burgers throughout the week, to a club during the weekend.
