Silk Road sets a new precedent in the global bar scene, drawing influences from every corner of the historic Silk Road. Located in the heritage-listed home of John Pascoe Fawkner’s Shakespeare Hotel, the building is a vital part of Melbourne’s rich history. Home to both the city’s co-founder and the first Melbourne Newspaper in 1838, this building has seen many faces of Melbourne and now begins a new chapter.
The moment you walk the vaulted double doors, you are immersed in a realm of floating crystal, Chinese silk, and 16th century European opulence.
Silk Road offers 8 unique bars and 1 kitchen across 3 floors. Catering for all occasions, ranging from small intimate parties to large gala events, Silk Road is the ideal entertaining venue.
