The Press Club


The Press Club Restaurant and Bar started it all.   This very Melbourne venue, with views over some of the city’s most iconic buildings and spaces, opened late in 2006 and this was a modern-Greek venue is perfect for the contemporary style that Melbourne is known for.  The open kitchen brings an element of drama to the contemporary dining room, and humble, professional service staff complete a winning combination.  The Bar has an elegant cocktail list and focus on sharing food,  and is ideal for an after work drink or a quiet bite before heading to the theatre, the game or the after party.

Maha followed in March 2008.  Shane Delia’s eye for detail and passion for all things exotic resulted in a stunning laneway venue.  A lavish bar and dining room are supported by a menu that melds the best local ingredients with ancient Middle Eastern recipes and preparation styles and will transport you to another world.

A traditional taverna in Lygon Street, East Brunswick, Hellenic Republic is sometimes described as the little brother of The Press Club.  Now just over a year old, such comparisons are obsolete as Hellenic Republic stands on its own at the forefront of traditional Greek cuisine – Melbourne style.  You can nearly imagine yourself in Greece, if it weren’t for the trams rolling past the front door.  The best way to experience Hellenic Republic is to sample the sharing, chef’s selection Trapezi menu.

Diners at our venues will note that while the cuisine and style differs, the hospitality is the same.  Guests are welcomed into our venues with a feeling of warmth and excitement, by knowledgeable staff and will be treated to some of the best food in Melbourne.

We look forward to welcoming you and your friends and family on your next visit.
