Hopetoun Tea Rooms


Hopetoun Tea Rooms

Nowhere else in Melbourne's City Business District can you find a more charming setting and atmosphere than the Hopetoun Tea Rooms. Whilst sipping on your tea, the Victorian splendour of the Block Arcade will take your mind back to the late 19th Century when the tea rooms' history began.

The Block Arcade site has what can only be described as a history of miraculous survival.

Originally a bulk grain store, it was sold in 1837 for a princely sum of 18 pounds and, from 1883 was occupied by Briscoe's bulk grain store. It was taken over by George and George, Silk Mercers and General Drapers, which was one of Melbourne's most prestigious stores, known as George's.In 1889, a spectacular fire burned the building to the ground.

The new owners, The City Property Company, stepped in to erect the building which now stands on the site.In 1893, The Block Arcade's official opening of the Mayor was celebrated with champagne and turkey.

From 1893 until 1907, The Victorian ladies' Work Association ran a small tea room, previously located at the shop number 6. Though the Association then disbanded, the tea rooms continued to operate under a new name "The Hopetoun Tea Rooms", after Lady Hopetoun.

It was at this time that the tea rooms moved to its present location at the front of the Block. Today, the tradition of quality at the Hopetoun Tea Rooms continues, combining delight of fine foods and beverages, with the tranquil beauty of refined elegance of The Block Arcade, now fully restored to its former glory.
