The Team Behind Arbory Afloat Are Opening A Five-Storey Super Venue In The CBD

Several buildings on Melbourne's Lonsdale Street. A light mist floats above the city skyline in the morning.

The minds behind Arbory have just locked in a five-storey heritage-listed building that's set to become a multi-level hospitality precinct featuring five unique venues.

You’ll find the new locale at 270 Lonsdale Street, right opposite the Emporium. Originally built in 1903 for a cigarette company, the building will soon play host to a lofty rooftop bar, several bars as well as a fine diner.

The mega venue will be a versatile one, with a labyrinth of rooms and spaces all with their own focus. Expect boundary-pushing design that fuses art, design and hospitality.

“Certain venues have the ability to create something new that moves the market forward and in Australia, it’s rare for a hospitality group to take over a multi-level property. We fell in love with the gorgeous intimate spaces that are synonymous with Melbourne’s culture, as well as the properties configuration and historical layers. 

Watch this space in the coming months for more announcements.
