1. Goz City
2. Farmers Daughters
Located on Exhibition Street, near Collins Street accessible platform super stops, the entry is step-free. A lift provides access to all levels, including the accessible toilet on level 1. Light-filled and spacious, there’s a range of seating, and wheelchairs fit with ease under the dining tables.
3. Cutler & Co
A small dining section up the back is elevated by a single step, but everywhere else is smoothly level with Gertrude Street. Low lighting soothes the eyes, while the music is turned up just loud enough to remind you it’s after work hours and you can do whatever you like. Suitable for guests who depend on the use of a wheelchair in a seated position at all times
Punch Lane’s finest dining experience offers step-free access at street level, but unfortunately no lift access to their mezzanine for functions and events. When booking it’s best to request the lower level so you aren’t seated upstairs.
With what may be the most beautiful accessible toilet in Melbourne, Aru has been designed with accessibility in mind. A wide automatic door leads into the spacious restaurant. There is a mix of high or low seating at the bar and the dining area has banquettes and chairs with armrests.
6. Maha Restaurant
Maha East is an accessible Middle East bar & restaurant with a single manual door to step free entry. There is an accessible bathroom with toilet raills & two accessible parking spots in parking lot behind venue, 50m from entrance.
7. Poodle Bar & Bistro
8. Marion Wine Bar
Marion Wine Bar is an accessible venue via the step free entry to the manual front door. There is outside seating available too. Looks spacious on the inside and a wheel chair can fit with moveable tables & chairs. There are also high stools & bar. There is parking off street but no specific spots for accessible parking. Accessible parking can be found at the underground care park at the Melbourne Museum & ACU multi-storey.
This buzzing, Asian-inspired diner features a spiral staircase down into their private dining room for exclusive functions, but there is also lift access to the lower level. The main area at street level has a step-free entrance from Flinders Lane, where you can join the perennial queue for a table at this popular spot. Suitable for guests who depend on the use of a wheelchair in a seated position at all times.
10. Kata Kitu
Near Melbourne Central Station on La Trobe Street, it has a wide, barrier-free entry. Two steps with a handrail lead down into the open and airy space. For other access, a platform lift is available for people who cannot use the stairs. The lift can be operated independently, but needs to be unlocked by one of the friendly staff. There is an accessible toilet and lots of room between tables.
Entry is via an automatic opening door. A gently sloping floor leads you into the restaurant, which has lots of space between tables. The Bladerunner theme continues to the accessible toilet. Flinders Street accessible platform super stops are right outside.
12. Pascale Bar & Grill
Accessing the level one venue by lift, the buzzing and lively open-plan dining and kitchen lets you watch the chefs in action. The spacious table layout is easy to navigate and tables are the ideal height for wheelchair users. A well-lit accessible toilet is located on the same floor.
13. Tippy Tay
Tippy Tay is fully accessible (as is much of the rest of Garden State Hotel, including the Public Bar with limited access to our Beer Garden tiers). Our Rose Garden and private function spaces can be reached via our lift
14. Garden State Hotel
The majority of the venue is wheelchair accessible including the Public Bar and Tippy Tay, with limited access to our Beer Garden tiers. Our Rose Garden and private function spaces can be reached via our lift.
