The ultra-luxurious finds an unlikely home at The Interlude, where jaw-dropping art, reverential experiences and gastronomic delights throw the needle forward for the standard of Melbourne’s heritage-rich stays. An intimate collection of just 19 suites operating less than 10kms from the CBD, the property features a hatted restaurant focused on the region’s finest decadence, led by the former Head Chef of Cumulus Inc. You'll also find what is perhaps the city's most unique wine bar – a detail-oriented venue with over 500 varieties treasured within converted bluestone cells, one of which was Ned Kelly's own. Below floor level lives a spectacular candle-lit pool available for private therapeutic bathing, elevated wellness experiences and poolside drinks. For almost 200 years, this was a place people dreamed of escaping. Now, it’s a place you’ll never want to leave.
