The Croft Institute
It’s an experience just getting to The Croft Institute. You’ll pass graffiti covered walls and some of Melbourne’s finest Chinese restaurants before reaching the bar at the end of a winding Chinatown cul-de-sac. The Croft Institute is spread over three levels.The science lab-inspired ground floor sports all manner of curious laboratory glassware displayed throughout. Wind down after work listening to urban grooves and cool jazz in this low key and slightly eccentric space. The first level houses the departments of ‘male and female hygiene’ while the second floor gymnasium complete with a real grass bar opens on the weekends when the DJs spin tunes until the wee small hours.
