During the day, the Metropolitan makes a reliable and stylish location for business lunches, breakfasts, and a brief break from the grind. As the working day ends, the vibe of the Metropolitan shifts a little, to one of laid-back fun and beers enjoyed at the end of a long day. The Metropolitan’s menu reads of upmarket pub-grub, with the parma being a particular favourite.
The Metropolitan boasts two private function rooms, which can be joined together to make one larger space. Level one fits up to 130 guests, and lends itself to corporate functions, weddings, and larger events, as well as more intimate ones. The ground level function space is an open-plan area, offering a stage for entertainers, and a private bar with specialty brews flowing from hand-carved statues.
The Metropolitan Hotel is found in the middle of the “legal precinct” of Melbourne’s CBD. Namely, it’s on William Street, between Lonsdale and La Trobe Streets. That’s just near Flagstaff station, as well as Flagstaff Gardens. There are plenty of trams that run up and down La Trobe Street.
