Few Melbourne venues have been reinvented as much in one short year as 2 Duke Street, Windsor. The space, once home to Saigon Sally, was transformed into bustling Thai eatery BKK in October 2017, but after just a few months became modern Australian restaurant Alter Dining. Now, just twelve weeks later, owner The Commune Group has announced yet another shake-up, closing the doors on the casual fine diner over the weekend.

The venue will now be used to host functions and events for the next year, though Commune Group director Simon Blacher hints there'll be greater things to come. "We've seen firsthand the evolution of Chapel Street over the past six years, and firmly believe in the 2 Duke Street site," says Blacher. "We've made the decision to pause on the space to focus on exciting upcoming projects which we'll unveil later this year."

Alter Dining's last service was on Saturday, July 28.
