Located in the heart of the Melbourne CBD near the exclusive Collins Street precinct, QT Melbourne is inspired by the 1920’s rag traders from which the local ‘Paris end’ of Melbourne draws much of its flair and flavour. Transforming its Russell Street address, QT Melbourne brings a chic new designer landmark to the city’s cultural heartland with distinctly creative edge and eclectic experiences through its 188 rooms and newly inspired drinking and dining establishments. Guests of QT are encouraged to immerse themselves in Melbourne’s rich and thriving creative culture.
Inside, the design philosophy is industrial inspired carried through in handcrafted steel, stone and timber, creating contrasting textures teamed with eclectic interiors of the hotel’s public spaces. Led by QT designers, renowned interior designer, Nic Graham, and architect and design expert Shelley Indyk, the duo have worked collaboratively to create the visually intriguing spaces whilst still incorporating signature QT quirks. Bespoke furniture, provocative graphics and a strong use of colour are some of the highlights, harmonised by glimpses of high-tech video art adding movement and intrigue to the space. There’s a contemporary feeling of modern industry in the building; exposed concrete is contrast to black steel, bronze, brass and this is set off by a strong colour palette and bold graphics.
Two colour palettes travel through the 188 guest rooms. Evenly distributed, the colour palette contrasts from deep electric blue and yellow gold, to a turquoise and red for the remaining rooms. The bold colours scheme works within each room, detailed into the ‘graffiti tagged’ rugs; a collaboration between Melbourne Graffiti artist James Beatie and Indyk, the veneer of the joinery, the wallpaper within the wardrobe, the upholstery of the chairs and chaises, in the choice of curtaining and the back-lit colour of glass in the mini-bars. The character is one of refined industrial elegance and this is evident in the contrasting textures where engineered oak timber flooring meets brass and metal framed benches. The black brushed slate bathrooms are encased by bathroom panelling manufactured wholly as aluminium framed glaze. Complimentary WI-FI, high spec designer tech, new release movies, a fully stocked minibar with plenty of QT quirk and world-class Malin+Goetz amenities complete the in-room offering.
With three new additions to the Melbourne food scene, QT Melbourne brings extraordinary indulgence through fresh dining, modern mixology and sensory temptations. Ascend the Yves Klein blue carpeted staircase into Pascale Bar & Grill, where Creative Food Director Robert Marchetti and in collaboration with QT Melbourne’s Executive Chef Paul Easson have designed an expansive menu with Euro-bistro influences, full of powerful flavours. As with every aspect of QT Melbourne, the design is prominent featuring rich interiors, curated lighting and in-house music combine to stimulate all five senses adding to the sophisticated, yet relaxed atmosphere redefining this modern day dining experience. On entry level, The Cake Shop presents Melbourne’s newest purveyor of temptation, offering decadent treats, mouth-watering pastries and a bespoke drink selection. For those looking to experience Melbourne’s infamous laneways, Hot Sauce Laneway Bar and neighbouring Tanto Japanese knife store inject a vibrant energy into the precinct, perfect for the late night crew.
Nestled amongst Melbourne’s city skyline, QT Rooftop Bar is the destination for decadent soirées – a place to quench your thirst while taking in the heart and soul of Melbourne from above. Hosting up to 185 guests, the split indoor/outdoor space will evoke glamour and passion through sensual designer décor, cutting-edge sound; made for igniting pleasure at Melbourne’s newest highline bar. Boasting a list of local spirits and house-made tonic, The Rooftop at QT offers an array of hand-crafted cocktails by some of Melbourne’s best bartenders.
