Finally a bank you might actually want to visit.

BOOK A TABLE

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 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.

Open from 11am on Monday to Friday and 5pm on Saturday, the Bank of Melbourne offers a $20 express lunch option complete with a schooner — a pretty excellent option for CBD office workers. There's also a $69 three-course set menu which includes a cocktail, as well as house drinks for a slim $7.50.
