I recently attended a conference at the RACV club. I was more than impressed. The staff were helpful and friendly. The food was abundant and delicious. We also dined downstairs for dinner in the evening and ordered an assortment of tapas sized meals to share. The pork belly was divine. Thank you RACV club and keep up the great work.

RACV has a variety of accommodation places available. City Club in Bourke St, is my favorite for both myself and out of town clients. Great standard of accommodation, with several on site restaurants and eateries to choose from - pool gym, day spa, barber - its all here. Highly recommended.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
