This grand establishment,

The Metropolitan Meat Market, built in 1874 is etched in the history and tradition of Melbourne. At the heart of the building is the Hotel, which helped service the meat workers.

Today The Metropolitan Hotel crew takes pride in its beautiful rooms and stained glass windows by delivering an elegant pub and dining room with a friendly feel. Come in and enjoy the highest quality food, craft beer and boutique wine.



Here at the Metropolitan we pride ourselves on providing a unique and special atmosphere for any occasion.

It’s not that often that a pub can be described as the ‘Complete Venue’, however, for the metro that would not be a lie. The charismatic Metro bar provides a lively and welcoming atmosphere which transcends into the grand dining room.

This is a special space that personifies the history of the pub, the meat market and traditional Melbourne. The recent redevelopment of the wine cellar completes the space that we can offer. With perfect acoustics for any musical event, this area can be moulded to any requirement, and remains an unearthed gem with vast potential.

All 3 areas are available for independent bookings, but hey, why not make the whole venue yours, catering and providing for over 200 people!
