The Bank on Collins

Finally a bank you might actually want to visit.

Within the walls of the heritage-listed Bank of Australia building on the corner of Collins and Queen streets lies comforting, modern pub with just enough sophistication and elegance that will knock your standard mid-week lunch out of the park.

Bringing affordable luxury to the precinct, the polished new eatery is the latest venture from hospitality group Retail Savvy, who also operate Asian Beer Cafe, Father's Office and the Shaw Davey Slum. Best start queuing now.

The restaurant and bar is split across the ground and mezzanine levels, ensuring the building's grand atmosphere has been retained. Amenities include a 17-metre-long bronze bar, 18 copper beer taps, three gold wine taps, a private cocktail area and a private dining room that caters to 20–24 people.

On weekdays, the venue offers a $25 express lunch option complete with a schooner or glass of wine — a pretty excellent option for CBD office workers. Later on, happy hour runs from 5–7pm with $5 glasses of house wine, $6 schooners, $7 spirits and $12 cocktails.
