A Melbourne Institution

Established in 1995, Punch Lane is a Melbourne dining icon and a pioneer amongst its laneway counterparts.


Punch Lane is a cosy and inclusive Wine Bar and restaurant, which prides itself on serving delicious food from a seasonal menu, mouth-watering cheeses from an eclectic board, matched with exceptional wine and service.


Conveniently nestled along the northern section of Little Bourke Street. Punch Lane sits right in the heart of Melbourne’s entertainment and political district. Chinatown, Princess Theatre and Her Majesty’s Theatre are just minutes away by foot.


Punch Lane can cater for business lunches, after work drinks, group celebrations or intimate dinners for two. Simply want to relax and watch the world go by? Then pop in for a glass of wine and a yarn with Punch Lane’s friendly staff – the choice is yours! For further enquires for larger group bookings visit our events page.


Also visit out sister site Juliet right downstairs. The strong female name is reflected in its wine, beer and spirit lists, and some of the food produce, is a nod to Australia’s female producers and artisans.

Alternatively for a change of pace travel out to Richmond to WAYGOOD, promoting Victorian wines, seasonal produce and bottomless brunch every Saturday.
