Captain Melville

0

Captain Melville is the re-invention of a dark inner city nightclub into a restaurant and bar inspired by the ghosts of the hotels first patrons. Amid a colony in a state of dichotomy, 1853 saw the construction of Mac’s Hotel – one of Victoria’s first licensed hotels. Settlers flooded to our shores chasing land, gold and new beginnings, while convicts railed against their injustice and the class system that created it. via

Welling up from beneath the colony came the influence of the rebel spirit; here manifest in the tale of Captain Melville, the “Gentleman” Bushranger. Rousing a new layer of chaos and asymmetry this renegade sentiment permeates through the venue’s new identity, branding and raw materiality.
