The Metropolitan hotel has been a Melbourne landmark for more than 150
years. Bordering the historical legal precent, it is within easy
walking distance of the major hotels and theatres. The hotel prides
itself on being the 'local watering hole' to the legal fraternity and
finance district of Melbourne, which has always bought a certain colour
and conversation to its walls.
Following a major transformation, the new Metropolitan Hotel has established a benchmark for style and excellence in the CBD. In some ways the inner transformation has been a reflection of the cosmopolitan and sophistication that has overtaken Melbourne.
The open bar, soft leather seating and contemporary decor create a stylish upscale, feel and can quite comfortably take its place alongside the great brasseries of the world
The hotel transforms itself according to the time of day. Throughout the morning there is a competitively priced breakfast menu and barista quality coffee. At lunchtime the Hotel morphs into a stylish eatery and bar. You can have a relaxed meal in the informal and spacious downstairs cafe area or in the slightly more formal setting upstairs.
The menu offers a range of modern Australian with international contemporary food choices at unfashionably reasonable hotel prices. One of the increasingly popular favourites include the gourmet wood fired pizzas and the "chicken parma" - an old favourite. Ensure to visit our website for our latest menu's
In the evening the Hotel goes through its third transformation as locals, workers and professionals surround the bar area to wind down before going home or wind up before going out. Many, seduced by the social ambience or the smiles of the friendly and efficient staff, stick around until evening turns into night. On the Friday nights the tempo goes up a few notches, the buzz is infectious and the crowd shows little inclination to hop in a cab home.
The Metropolitan Hotel has something to offer everyone during the day and night, why don't you come down and see for yourself!
