Bordered by two of Melbourne’s most iconic streets, Collins and Flinders, and directly across from Southern Cross Station, Melbourne Quarter is set to bring together world class design, city living, future workplaces, dining and retail spaces.

A new local for Melburnians and visitors alike, Melbourne Quarter encompasses a thriving food and drink scene, local art and green public spaces.

This winter, hospitality retailers at Melbourne Quarter have curated several warming food and beverage offerings, including:

Bluebag – proudly serving “feel good food” so customers can eat ethically, holistically and sustainably. The cafe offers a rotating menu of soups that incorporate local ingredients – making them the perfect lunch option this winter.

Other retailers include Fishbowl and Peddler Espresso, which have healthy and affordable dine-in or takeaway options.

Beyond food, Melbourne Quarter is a hub for fashion, lifestyle and art with retailers including Da Barber House, a one-stop-shop for all things men’s styling and grooming, and NGALI, a sustainable fashion label that works with First Nations artists to translate world-renowned artworks into premium-quality clothing. •

Melbourne Quarter hosts an ongoing calendar of free and ticketed events, activations, and installations, aimed to instil creativity and culture to Melbournian’s and visitors alike.

The precinct also plays host to some of Melbourne’s most talented First Nations and local artists.
Located in the heart of Melbourne Quarter, Gunpowder Walk holds ever-changing art murals, which forms part of the precinct’s overall public art activations program.
