Circa at Prince of Wales Hotel St Kilda


Circa Restaurant and Bar at The Prince of Wales Hotel continues to evolve and follow iconic pursuit. Working closely with new operator, Melbourne Pub Group, we strived to reinstate/restore the original dining room and redeem qualities of the hotel’s courtyard charm with a new destination central bar. Spaces take on a breath of life and are now activated to become engaged to improve mixed use.

The Fritz  Hanson classics are re-purposed and paired with both European and custom pieces along-side local emerging artworks. Art curation by Utopian Slumps Director Melissa Loughnan, continuing the intrigue and the language of the hotel appeal.

Guests find a busier bar clad in deco-inspired brass, mirror and black glass reflecting frivolity and a glittering green ceiling installation.
