The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Customer service team member at customer service desk determined with their agenda and unable to effectively communicate and listen. By not listening and demonstrating any form of understanding the staff member escalated the issue and then hung up on me on the phone. Really unwarranted, unprofessional and a terrible experience.

Emporium Melbourne is an up-market shopping center. Emporium Melbourne is in Lonsdale Street, near Swanston Street. Emporium was built around the former Myer Lonsdale Street store. No expense was spared when the site was rebuilt at a cost of $1.2 billion. Apart from the many fashion outlets, Emporium has a food court. The luxury stores include Coach. The International dumpling house at Emporium., Din Tai Fung, has a well-patronized restaurant

We were wandering around the city killing time... when we stepped into the Emporium looking for a bathroom... while I waited for my ex .. . I was quite mesmerised by the 70s vibe of the building. When he returned I commented that I was enjoying the air conditioning and we should spend some time here.

We walked through, we found a clothing store (Uniqlo) and he went shopping. It's interesting how he has always enjoyed clothing shopping whereas I have always considered it a task. He managed to find some really nice dress shorts in here.

It's worth spending time in here in Summer for the air-conditioning... and probably in Winter to avoid rain. :) It has an outstanding range of stores on offer.

Stumbled across this as we stayed across the road in the Mercure. Was open late, well air conditioned and great stores with something for everyone. Service staff in all stores we visited were friendly and helpful. Customer service was everywhere and the layout is spacious, Covid friendly with a full day of shopping completed in style and with pleasure. Many food outlets and coffee stops to rest as needed,

Lots of shops. Not a lot of range though, maybe one or two plus size stores in the whole complex but some stores had two locations on different floors. Hard to navigate if you get lost. Some good cafes. Myer seemed okay, not lots of plus size, but he beauty section was nice.

Calling Emporium a 'mall' is an insult. Emporium is a luxurious collection of over 200 high end fashion and retail outlets, with one of Australia's largest collections of original designer outlets. It's connected to Myer and David Jones. Emporium has a collection of enticing eateries, including Din Tai Fung, part of the world-renowned dumpling chain.

Not much of a shopper myself. Most of the shops don’t attract me except for some major sports apparels shops. From the malls I have walked through, think I am not that far from the mark. I think.

There’s also a bookshop by the name of Readings. Quite big.

Emporium is a new mid to upmarket shopping centre in the centre of Melbourne. It is connected to David Jones, Myer and Melbourne by a network of pedestrian walkways and tunnels. Emporium Melbourne boasts that it has the largest collection of Australian designer outlets in the nation. Emporium Melbourne is returning to life now that the Covid epidemic has receeded. Also, the well-known dumpling restaurant Din Tai Fung is represented in Emporium Melbourne, along with many other eateries.
