When reviving this tired section of the RACV City Club in Melbourne CBD, we envisioned a space that blended premium elegance with a warm and home-like ambiance. The end result is a wine bar that feels approachable, yet offers a refined and sophisticated experience for club members and their guests.
The Traditional Custodians of this land
Gross Floor Area
“It was essential to create a space that would allow RACV Club Members to feel at home and at ease; furniture was selected for its comfort factor, lighting is low and indirect, and natural, textural materials add warmth and softness. All these elements come together to create a comfortable and home-like feel.”

“The Club’s eclectic offering of wines is displayed as a sculptural extension to the back bar sweeping around the corner, enabling the patrons to engage, admire and personally select their wine.
…In addition to cosy booth areas, spacious seating and a modern tasting table, Technē has also incorporated secure whisky lockers where Members can purchase and display their favourite bottles and access them when they visit.”
