The $500 million Munro development at Queen Victoria Market has revealed five new venues that will help fill the space.
Queen Victoria Market’s Munro development is a major building project that’s set to transform the market’s carpark into a community hub replete with a three-story library, coworking spaces and more. Under the original plans, the market’s existing carpark will move underground.
Today, five new venues that will form part of the development have been revealed, including one of Australia’s largest independent craft brewers, two specialty coffee roasters and a popular sushi outlet are set to draw visitors in their droves to the Munro development in the Queen Victoria Market precinct. Seven hospitality venues will open their doors at the City of Melbourne’s Munro development in the coming months, enhancing the market’s gourmet offerings and giving visitors even more reason to shop, dine and dwell in the precinct.
New Munro development venues:
- Brick Lane Market – a two-level immersive craft beer and hospitality experience by Melbourne independent brewer Brick Lane Brewing at the former Mercat Cross Hotel site, serving up a range of diverse beer styles alongside a food menu that highlights local, market-fresh produce.
- ST. ALi & The Queen – Coffee & Cocktails – specialty coffee roasters ST. ALi will offer breakfast and lunch, before switching to cocktails in the evening.
- Moonfishh – the popular Albert Park outlet will offer a full sensory sushi experience using fresh and seasonal market produce.
- Market Lane Coffee – the much-loved specialty coffee roaster will open its third café in the market precinct, serving up high-quality coffee with a focus on sustainable sourcing and ethical practices.
- Only Mine Chocolate – decadent, handmade delights will be the focus of the bespoke chocolatier’s first city location.

The operators will join wine bar and bottle shop, ReWine, which has already opened its doors in the Munro development. More detail on the remaining tenants will be revealed soon. As mentioned, the $500 million Munro development will feature a community hub with a three-level library, a boutique hotel, affordable housing, build-to-rent residential apartments and 2500 square-metres of new open space.
The development will add 1800 square-metres of new retail and hospitality space to the city’s inner north, and will feature a diverse mix of businesses to reflect Melbourne’s world-renowned food, fashion and art scenes, while complementing the market’s unique offerings.
“Our major investment in the Queen Victoria Market Precinct Renewal program will ensure the iconic Melbourne attraction is a world-class destination for generations to come – with a diverse range of food and beverage, retail and creative offerings to encourage visitors to dine, shop and dwell in the precinct,” Lord Mayor Sally Capp said.
“The new hospitality venues in the Munro development will showcase the market’s sensational fresh produce to further enhance the profile of all our traders.
“We know these new businesses will also draw a new wave of visitors to the market and ensure the precinct is buzzing day and night, which is great news for our market traders and inner north business owners.”
The Munro development is set to open in 2023. For more information, visit the City of Melbourne’s website.
