Spice Market


As your host, innovative restaurateur Dean Lucas, synonymous with exquisite style, charm and sophistication, welcomes you to Spice Market, his unique bar, lounge and club. Relish the opulent Middle Eastern and Far Eastern experience of this exotic bar and cocktail lounge, Spice Market, an energised and undeniably dazzling venue.

The lavish Spice Market takes its inspiration from the ancient Spice Route travelled by traders of old, and has been exquisitely furnished to reflect this famous journey from Asia Minor through to the Far East. Honoring the Melbourne tradition of laneways and discovery, Spice Market is entered from Beaney Lane, off Russell Street, adjacent to the Grand Hyatt Melbourne.

Upon entering the subterranean world of Spice Market, you are transported to a more exotic time and place. Owners, Dean Lucas and Robert & Victor Zagame, have travelled the world collecting antiques, unique furniture and objects of art, combing them with luxe fabrics, an abundance of colour, handcrafted ceramic and glass mosaics, rich in every detail.

Spice Market captures the essence of the Middle East and Mediterranean with a mezze style menu that reflects the heritage of the fabled Spice Route and features dishes with a distinctive Oriental flavour. Please remember, we are a bar and not a restaurant, and we do not accept dinner reservations.

Our Persian Rooms (catering up to 10 guests) and Shanghai Lounges (catering up to 6 guests), provide lush, comfortable, semi private refuges.
