    The Rapha Melbourne Clubhouse is located in an early 1900’s warehouse on Guildford Lane. Both the building and laneway have great heritage and cultural significance within the Melbourne CBD fabric. With its bluestone walls, exposed floor and roof structures the building offered great opportunities and challenges in providing a space that both respected the building’s features and represented Rapha’s brand aesthetic.

    We have two spaces avaliable, we have our beautiful Peoples Room, located on the first floor which is availiable during business hours, or our modular Cafe / Retail space located on the ground floor can be booked upon application.
