The Crown Entertainment Complex offers a whole variety of experiences under one roof. Overlooking the city on the Yarra River at Southbank, the complex means different things to different people and includes places to stay, eat, drink, shop and gamble.
Live shows, bars, nightclubs, a ten-pin bowling alley and a cinema are just some of the options available for visitors at Crown, so whatever time of the day or night you visit, there is always something to do.
Some of Melbourne’s best restaurants can be found within the Complex and they represent a range of award-winning international cuisine including Bistro Guillame (French); Nobu (Japanese); The Atlantic (Seafood); Rockpool Bar & amp; Grill (Steakhouse) and the Spice Temple (Chinese). There are plenty of budget-friendly cafes and restaurants as well, in addition to a large food court.
Crown Towers is the hotel of choice for high rollers and celebrities visiting Melbourne (its most recent high profile visitors – that we know about – were Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes); while Crown Metropol and Crown Promenade also offer a luxurious stay.
You can bliss out in not one but two spas at the Crown Entertainment Complex and take advantage of their pampering treatments or packages.
Crown’s biggest attraction is its large casino – one of the biggest gaming facilities in the southern hemisphere. Even if you are not a gambler, it is definitely worth having a look around. The Casino is open 24 hours a day and judging by the looks on some of the punters faces, quite a few of them haven’t seen daylight in quite a while.
Crown Entertainment Complex is an easy walk from Spencer or Flinders Street Stations in Melbourne’s CBD.
