Named after Sir Walter Lindrum, the greatest billiards player the world has seen, many guests are tempted to head straight to the billiard room near the reception and grab a cue. With just 59 rooms, the building, which was built in 1900 and was used as a sales room for teas, coffees and cocoas, offers intimate surrounds. Located just a few minutes walk to the Melbourne Cricket Ground and on the outskirts of the CBD, the Lindrum is the ideal place for those that want to be in the heart of Melbourne's theatre and restaurant district. The onsite restaurant felt, named after the fabric of a billiard table, is a stand-alone culinary experience with fresh local produce in elegant yet casual surrounds.
An original Walter Lindrum snooker table takes pride of place in the billiard room.
