“As the legend goes, when the Phoenix resurrects from the flames, she is even more beautiful than before.” Danielle LaPorte
With a heritage dating back to 1869, this iconic building initially named and known as The Albion Hotel, spans a vibrant history as popular hot spots, The Roxy and The Motel. 150 years later, this prominent South Melbourne institution returns to its roots and namesake, The Albion.
Toward the tail end of a huge renovation, the building endured a devastating fire delaying an intended open in 2015. However like the proverbial Phoenix rising from the ashes, it has surpassed its original plan transforming into a phenomenal premium Melbourne destination for dining, drinking, nightlife, functions and events.
Welcome to The Albion.
