Treasury Restaurant and Bar at 394 Collins Street in the heart of Melbourne’s central business district, is in a beautiful 19th century landmark building that was built in 1874. The interior features magnificent chandeliers, marble flooring, gold-leaf cornices and many original fixtures from its early days as the Bank of Australasia.
Treasury can accommodate exclusive and semi exclusive lunches or dinners for up to 150 guests and cocktail parties for up to 300 guests. Treasury also offers the convenience of hosting wedding ceremonies within its grand surroundings. I have had lunch there and it was an excellent experience with nice food and discreet, unobtrusive service.
Original features of Treasury such as the nineteenth century brass doors, soaring ornate ceiling, decorative pillars and bank teller counters have been cleverly juxtaposed with modern elements such as a chic mezzanine lounge, which provides a commanding view over proceedings and is popular for pre-dinner drinks and canapés. In addition, Treasury Restaurant’s adjacent hotel, The Sebel Melbourne, offers modern conference and meeting rooms for conferencing finctions. Beautiful two-storey Loft Suites are also available for smaller meetings and social gatherings.
