Melbourne’s new Hilton set to open

Hilton, Hotel, Melbourne, Restaurant, bar, New Opening

Melbourne’s heritage listed Equity Chambers has been transformed into Hilton Melbourne Little Queen Street, with doors set to open on Monday, 22 March 2021.


Built in 1931, Melbourne's Equity Chambers was renowned for its architectural style and Italian Romanesque and Gothic detailing. In its reimagining as Hilton Melbourne LQS, the building's old world-charm has been respected and original features restored, whilst seamlessly connecting a modern six-level extension with a 16-level tower to the historic site. 


External and internal artworks commissioned by award-winning Melbourne street art collaborative Juddy Roller are curated in reference to the city's thriving and internationally renowned graffiti-art scene. Significant works have been contributed by local artists Kitt Bennett and David Lee Pereira, including a large and colourful mural by Bennett on the external wall opposite the hotel's Little Queen Street laneway entrance, which is splendidly reflected in the external bronze panels that frame the hotel's elegant lobby. 



Entered from the bustling thoroughfare of Bourke Street, Hilton Melbourne LQS's Luci restaurant and The Douglas Club cocktail bar carry their own entrance independent of the hotel's laneway lobby, and are anticipated to be welcome new additions to Melbourne's world-class dining and drinking scene. 


At Luci, Executive Chef Sam Moore will take inspiration from the European migrants who travelled to Melbourne in the 1950s, with his classic modern Australian menu, accented with hints of Italian and European culinary traditions.


The Douglas Club will celebrate the energy and glamour of the golden age of travel through its contemporary take on a classic cocktail bar. The drinks menu will bring together classic, modern and infamous cocktails, with food, music and art, to make The Douglas Club a new hotspot for Melbourne.



To complement the 244 stylish guest rooms and suites and food and beverage outlets, Hilton Melbourne LQS will offer a large balcony event space with city skyline views featuring a mural by Kitt Bennett; seven meeting and event spaces that range in size from 24 to 143 square meters equipped with high-speed Wi-Fi and the latest audio-visual technology; and a fully equipped gym. 



Located on the corner of Bourke Street and Little Queen Street the hotel is in the heart of Melbourne's vibrant art, theatre and dining precincts, and on the doorstep of the city's key business districts with easy access to public transport.
