It is a requirement of law that your physical ID is scanned upon entry. We only accept non expired, physical forms of ID and photos will not be accepted. By law one of the following forms of identification are accepted as proof of age and entry: A current Australian driver’s license or permit, current Australian or foreign passport, current Government issued proof of age card, other current identity documents approved by the Liquor Licensing Division such as: the Victorian Key-pass, an overseas drivers license that must contain the persons photograph, date of birth and be written in the English language.
From 9pm, the Royal George does implement a dress code. This includes no track pants, singlets, high vis, basketball or board shorts. Regarding footwear, no thongs are permitted (for safety!). As per house policy we reserve the right to refuse entry if dress standards are not met. These standards may vary on case to case situations.
The venue does hold a no face tattoo policy. This policy originated years ago when almost all persons with a face tattoo were associated with outlawed motorcycle gangs. The policy was a means of ensuring the safety of the venue's patrons and was a reasonable precaution at the time. We now recognise that there are more reasons that a person may have face tattoos beyond that of symbolising belonging to a bikie gang. An example of this is the traditional tribal face tattoos commonly known as Ta Moko or Moko Kauae in Aotearoa (New Zealand). As a result of this cultural edification, we approach every instance of face tattoos individually. If you do have a cultural or traditional face tattoo, our policy is for a manager to come and introduce themselves and discuss it with you. Culturally significant face tattoos should not disallow you from entry in this venue. Please make sure you ask for a manager, rather than only discussing the matter with a security guard.
Neck and hand tattoos are perfectly fine.
RG's only has a cover charge after 10pm on Fridays and after 9pm on Saturdays. This may vary slightly but is pretty reliably true. Cover charge is only ever $5 except on New Year's Eve
