In early Federation Melbourne, Cliveden Mansion was a sparkling social hub, overlooking Fitzroy Gardens. At garden parties, balls and salons, Cliveden was alive with Melbourne’s brightest from the worlds of music, philanthropy, art and higher learning. The Cliveden Bar and Dining, built on the site of the 1887 mansion, renews the Cliveden spirit.

At The Cliveden Bar, sharing plates can be accompanied by European and local craft beers, ciders, a curated list of superb Australian wines, and signature cocktails conjured by resident mixologists. In the spirit of the 1800s and the Grand Tour of Europe, The Cliveden Dining presents fresh local produce in Mediterranean and European-inspired cuisine. Experience a modern interpretation of the classic buffet, celebrating the rich diversity of Melbourne’s renowned culinary heritage.

Please note: we have replaced our Mediterranean Buffet dinner with a one-of-a-kind, flavour-forward a la carte menu crafted by Executive Chef, David Albert.
