    The Metropolitan hotel has been a Melbourne landmark for more than 150 years. Bordering the historical legal precinct, it is within easy walking distance of the major hotels and theatres. The open bar, soft leather seating and contemporary decor create a stylish upscale, feel and can quite comfortably take its place alongside the great pub/brasseries of the world. The hotel transforms itself according to the time of day. Throughout the morning there is a competitively priced breakfast menu and barista quality coffee. At lunchtime the Hotel morphs into a stylish eatery and bar. You can have a relaxed meal in the informal and spacious downstairs cafe area or, by arrangement, in the slightly more formal setting upstairs. The menu offers a range of modern Australian with international contemporary food choices at unfashionably reasonable hotel prices. One of the increasingly popular favorites include the gourmet wood fired pizzas and the "chicken parma" - an old favorite.
