About QT Melbourne

The world’s a stage and some sets are just more sumptuous than others. At QT Melbourne your scene is dressed in velvet detail, sultry soundscapes and three courses for the five senses.

Inspired by the rag traders of the early 1900’s in nearby Flinders Lane and the French fashion influence of the Paris end of Collins Street, QT Melbourne brings a chic designer landmark to the city’s cultural heartland with distinctly creative edge through its 188 rooms and exciting dining and bar experiences, including the bustling Pascale Restaurant, designer luxury Event Spaces and the elite Rooftop at QT giving a glimpse across the city.

QT Melbourne is a path that leads somewhere different every time. You might say our regulars are irregular; the rules change as often as the cocktail list, and the door is your ever-open invitation to step on through.
