Take the stress out of hosting festive celebrations this year and book a premium festive menu, served in our luxury Melbourne hotel.
Christmas doesn’t have to be stressful, which is why we’ve put together your ideal Christmas dining guide, covering Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Christmas Dinner. Even better, if you have family or friends travelling to Melbourne, they can stay in one of our luxurious guestrooms.
Located on prestigious Collins Street, experience traditional food and premium beverages in the heart of the city, seated in Alluvial Restaurant located in a traditional 1890’s heritage listed building. The hotel’s façade is a stunning example of 1890s neo-Gothic architecture combined with a luxurious modern interior. Taking its name from the famous bridge that crosses the Grand Canal in Venice, the Rialto is as rich in character as it is in history.
Built in 1891, the hotel began as two separate buildings that housed the famous Melbourne wool stores and its offices. The bluestone cobbled laneways between the Rialto and Winfield buildings, which once echoed with the clatter of horse hoofs as carts carried wool and wheat to the wharves, still remains untouched under our floorboards.
