About Punch Lane
Now celebtrating 16 years, Punch Lane has been regarded as a Melbourne institution.
The historic lane off Little Bourke Street that gives the restaurant its name was the centre of Melbourne's red light district in the late 1800s. The building was the city's original police station and over the years has housed the vice squad and ASIO.
Today, Punch Lane is uniquely Melbourne and has built a strong and enviable reputation for its intimate setting, unpretentious food, exciting wine list, bar culture and personable service.
Punch Lane's signature red chairs are perfect for relaxing in and enjoying a glass of wine from the extensive selection on offer. The cellar is well stocked with Australian classics, emerging gems from small producers and many beauties from New Zealand, France, Italy and Spain.
For theatregoers, the location for pre and post theatre suppers is a must. Punch Lane offers a tapas selection and an impressive range of cheeses on offer all day and all night long.
During Melbourne's warmer months, the award winning alfresco dining area designed by acclaimed Melbourne architects, Jackson Clements Burrows, is the perfect place to watch the world go by.
