A man who allegedly phoned authorities with a fake bomb scare has been charged after the hoax caused a Melbourne pub to be evacuated on New Year's Day.

Victoria Police on Tuesday said a 23-year-old Preston man had been charged with making a bomb hoax and using a carriage service to menace.

He's due to appear in Melbourne Magistrates' Court in late April after the reportedly drunken prank led to the Bimbo Deluxe pub in Fitzroy being evacuated late on Sunday night.
