A LIL' bit ABOUT Lizzie
In the midst of Albert Park’s eclectic architecture, just off Queens Lane… a charming and colourful hideout awaits. In perfect time for summer, Albert Park is now home to an all-new Pop-Up Melbourne Laneway Bar in a previously unused laneway in the back ally of a five-star hotel. Lizzie's Lane is popping up from October 2019 through until March 2020.
The pop-up, appropriately named Lizzie’s Lane, will operate from Thursday to Sunday*, offering London inspired bites, refreshing summer cocktails, a few classic UK beverages and chilled tunes. With astroturf, Pimm's, festoon lights and even the odd chance of a lawn game. This relaxed garden-like setting has been set-off with a pop-art mural inspired by a blend of Melbourne and East London street art styles by local Melbourne street artist Sheldon Headspeath.
Lizzie’s Lane is the perfect place to unwind and soak up the sunshine this summer.

ALBERT PARK HISTORY
Did you know that Albert Park was used as a garbage dump, a military camp and for recreation before the artificial lake was built. Then in 1854 a new suburb plan was introduced to emulate London. St Vincent Gardens were laid out, and the surrounding streets became home to the city's most successful citizens. Street names commemorated Trafalgar and Crimean War personalities and of course Royalty.
All of this history has inspired the creation of Lizzie’s Lane which exudes a London-in-summer spirit and pokes its tongue out to Royalty in an affectionate way.
