About Money Order Office ( MOO )

The Money Order Office was built in 1890 as an extension to the GPO opposite, to house the Money Order facilities.

From 1933 to 1970 it housed Federal Parliamentarians includin Prime Minister R.G. Menzies and J.B. Chifley.

This basement was the document storage room with filling cabinets occupying the booths.

Filled with antiques and artefacts collected world wide, it is very Melbourne in style. It reflects our rich culinary and cultural history.

The grills from a spanish monestary, the Argentinean and French parquetery and the worlds largest colection of Pierre Paulin lamps (c 1950) sit very easily next to the solid marble Roman bath and font.

M.O.O. is historical and yet timeless...

Voted Australian Wine Bar of the Year in its first year, MOO occupies the basement of the old Money Order Office (hence MOO) which was built at about the same time as its sister building, the GPO (c1886).

If you visit one laneway venue in Melbourne ... it has to be MOO!!

MOO is very Melbourne. Its decor is in keeping with its grand history and provides not only a comfortable club-like atmosphere with a timeless style, it is also a great place for late night drinks and grazing.

MOO has over 900 wines including back vintages of many iconic Australian wines.

With fine food, an amazing choice of affordable wines and beer on tap, MOO guarantees to provide a memorable experience.

Chef Russell Gronow continues MOO's food philosophy ... the best of fresh, seasonal and local ingredients prepared and presented to highlight their quality.

Enjoy an amazing cocktail at the MOO bar or a snack from the succulent bar grazing menu and you'll soon be saying ..." see you at MOO".

MOO is a fun place that takes food and wine seriously ... It's food is modern while the decor is timeless. Don't take yourself too seriously and enjoy MOO for what it is. I do.

Hard to find ... but worth the effort.

Dropped in with a friend from Sydney for a drink at the bar. We were so impressed we stayed for dinner.

This place is amazing and I was so proud to show my out-of-towner what Melbourne is about.

The ambience is very good,the food is great and the staff attentive and friendly.

Probably the best dining experience I've had in Melbourne. As for my friend he was blown away!!! I felt so proud to live in Melbourne.

Over doing it?

Maybe ... but check it out for yourself.
