New upmarket bar to replace Italian restaurant Rosetta at Crown Melbourne


Crown Melbourne has unveiled plans for a new regatta inspired bar set to open later this year on the site of Italian restaurant Rosetta which is closing after 12 years.

Rosetta will shut its doors on May 18, after Crown’s new owners Blackstone decided not to extend its lease.

The Henley at Crown Melbourne will offer a food and drink menu with a focus on local products. A U-shaped marble bar will take centre stage in the new riverside bar, which will feature a mix of high table options for large groups and intimate dining spaces, alongside an outdoor space.


“We are thrilled to share the news of The Henley at Crown Melbourne as we begin to reinvigorate Crown Melbourne for our guests,” said Mike Volkert, Crown Melbourne’s CEO.

“Our vision for The Henley at Crown Melbourne was to create a venue that opens directly onto the Riverwalk – a unique and previously underutilised asset – allowing for greater catchment as people seek out a riverside drink or meal.

“The announcement of The Henley at Crown Melbourne signifies the start of what is to come for Crown.”
