Queen & Collins: Redefining CBD Dining Experiences

The GPT Group, one of Australia’s leading property groups, has unveiled the final phase of its audacious redevelopment project at the illustrious Queen & Collins tower. The crown jewel of this project is a premium dining precinct encapsulated within the iconic gothic façade. Queen & Collins has evolved to shatter the conventional mould of CBD dining hubs, providing an architecturally designed space that intertwines the site’s rich history with a modern celebration of culinary diversity.

This dynamic precinct serves a broad customer demographic, including business executives, local residents, and tourists. Each corner of Queen & Collins is meticulously crafted to reflect the vibrancy of Melbourne’s famed laneways. It thrives as a lively community hub, imbued with character and texture, set to make its mark as a distinctive destination for gatherings this social season.

Fine Dining and Artisanal Cafes

Reine & La Rue, the French bistro nestled within the historic Grand Cathedral Room, brings a touch of old-world New York opulence. Managed by the renowned NOMAD group, the bistro has quickly achieved ‘icon’ status, winning Good Food’s 2023 Best New Restaurant of the Year. The grandeur of its vaulted ceilings, granite columns, and stained-glass windows pairs elegantly with a menu that leaves patrons wanting more.

Rustica, the artisanal café and bakery, offers a more laid-back dining option. It’s the perfect retreat from the city’s hustle, marking the café’s fourth location in the CBD.

Exciting New Additions

This December, food lovers can look forward to the launch of the subterranean bar, Purple Pit, by culinary maestro Maurice Terzini and his business partner, Joe Jones. The duo aims to innovatively mirror the precinct’s ornate character in the newest addition to Melbourne’s nightlife scene.

A25, the esteemed pizzeria founded by the Nicolini family, is set to bring their award-winning pizza, hand-crafted pasta, and warm Italian hospitality to Queen & Collins. Their newest CBD venue will open just in time for the holiday season.

Decadent Desserts

Scheduled to launch in early 2024, KOI Dessert Bar will be the cherry on top, presenting its Melbourne Flagship to dessert enthusiasts. Known for its exquisite and avant-garde creations, KOI promises a unique dining experience for sweet-toothed patrons.

The GPT Group has masterfully fused culinary excellence with ornate gothic architecture, creating an unforgettable destination that celebrates both history and innovation. The Queen & Collins dining precinct is now open, with its gourmet retailers set to follow soon.
