The Waiters Club
Despite missing out on the neighbouring Meyers Place revolution, the Waiter's Club remains a city stalwart.
It's been around since 1947 and still resembles an old Coles canteen from the '70s, but, despite missing out on the neighbouring Meyers Place revolution, the Waiter's Club remains a city stalwart.
Originally a members-only, after-work venue for Melbourne's new-Australian waiters, the restaurant now hosts a cross-generational legion of foodie fans. Tuck in to a welcoming bowl of pasta or a generous slice of tiramisu; fine dining it's not, but it's homely and dependable. In fact, its no-frills service, laminex tables and daggy curtains might remind you of Nan's kitchen as it remains immune to the evolving trends of the streetscape downstairs. Let's hope it never changes.
