The Waiting Room

Melbourne's most sophisticated hotel lobby bar.

Located in the heart of the Crown Towers lobby, The Waiting Room is one of Melbourne's most sophisticated hotel lobby bars, exuding opulence, comfort and style.

Step into a world inspired by early 1940's influence for a classic martini, a cocktail or choose from our range of premium champagne, wine and award winning array of craft beers. The Waiting Room is the perfect hideaway for an intimate evening or a place to relax and feel at home in the comfort of our luxurious lounges whilst waiting for your next rendezvous.


For a modern take on a quintessentially British tradition, Crown's Executive Pastry Chef, Roberto
Molleman, delivers an Afternoon Tea like no other in Melbourne, featuring contemporary sandwiches
and delectable desserts, paired with a variety of fine teas. For an especially indulgent experience,
complement your treat with a flute of premium sparkling wine or champagne.

The Waiting Room is the perfect hideaway for an intimate evening, an exclusive event or an impeccable Afternoon Tea.
