The Metropolitan Hotel is a landmark within its Melbourne city neighbourhood for over 150 years. Luckily, it’s had a few stylish refurbishments over the course of its life. In more recent days, it’s been keeping the be-suited business and legal types of the Melbourne CBD fed and watered, all day and into the night.
During the day, the Metropolitan makes a convenient and stylish location for business lunches, breakfasts, and a brief break from the grind. As the working day ends, the vibe of the Metropolitan shifts a little, to one of laid-back fun and beers enjoyed at the end of a long day. The Metropolitan’s menu reads of upmarket pub classics, with the parma being a particular favourite.
The Metropolitan boasts two private function rooms, which can be combined to make one larger space. Level one fits up to 200 guests for cocktail events, and lends itself to corporate functions, weddings, and larger events, as well as more intimate ones. The ground level function space is an open-plan area, offering a stage for entertainers, and a private bar with a vast range of local craft beers and curated artisan spirit offerings.
The Metropolitan Hotel is found in the middle of the “legal precinct” of Melbourne’s CBD. Namely, it’s on William Street, between Lonsdale and La Trobe Streets. That’s just near Flagstaff station, as well as Flagstaff Gardens. There are plenty of trams that run up and down La Trobe Street and great parking opposite at the old Mint.
The possibilities are endless!
