Zagame’s to open boutique hotel in Carlton

Hospitality group Zagame’s will open its first boutique hotel in May in Melbourne’s Carlton.

Located in Lygon Street, the design-driven Zagame’s House is the result of a complete $18 million transformation of the former hotel operated by the Zagame family for 16 years.

The hotel will offer 97 rooms, a private event space, a neighbourhood wine shop and bar and a coffee house and kitchen.

The wine shop and bar, Lord Lygon, will be headed up by award-winning executive chef, Chris Bonello (AHA Chef of the Year and MPD Restaurant of the year), delivering a tapas and drinks menu that champions locally based farmers, distillers and producers.

Street side, Lobby 1851 coffee house and kitchen completes the Zagame House food offering, with a refined ala carte breakfast menu to be enjoyed on its large communal tables.

“No expense has been spared in the transformation of this property,” said Victor and Robert Zagame. “We invite our guests to experience for themselves the exquisite art, luxurious amenities and state of the art technology. Expect the unexpected when it comes to exceptional service as our team will impress even the most experienced traveller.”
