Rumour has it that the famous Jackalope Hotel group is planning to open its second property in Melbourne’s CBD in the year 2020 – and if it’s anything like its sister property, we’re positive it’ll be making headlines as soon as the first guest presses ‘book now’.

Pending planning position, the new hotel will be built at 175-181 Flinders Lane and will call popular restaurants Supernormal, Chin Chin, Coda and Movida just some of its delicious neighbours, while Flinders Street Station and Federation Square are mere moments away.
The build comes off the back of the success of Jackalope Mornington Peninsula, which opened in April last year, and the CBD hotel will share the same DNA as the initial property; focusing on art, design, dining and storytelling.
Featuring 32 suites, this designer boutique hotel has commissioned March Studio to work on the design with the original Maria George building being retained and a new ten-storey ‘minimal frosted glass box’ added.
The first floor of the new hotel will be occupied by the hotel lobby, which we expect will pack the same wow-factor that the Mornington hotel does, as well as two food and beverage outlets.
But it’s at the top of the building where you’ll find Melbourne’s glamorous young professionals and Insta-famous fashionistas enjoying a cocktail or two. Atop the hotel will sit the Cloud Bar, a chic hotspot fashioned by 10mm electropolished stainless steel wire that will mimic the shape of a cumulus cloud.
It’s fair to say – we can’t wait. Bring on 2020.
