Bank Place is a street in Melbourne, Victoria. It is a short, narrow laneway, running south from Little Collins Street between Queen Street and William Street in the central business district of Melbourne. Located in the heart of the financial sector, Bank Place (which incorporates several smaller lanes, such as Mitre Lane) is an oasis of heritage pre-war buildings dating from the 1860s through to the 1920s.

The lane also includes several ornate heritage lamp posts and bluestone alleys. It is home to several bars, cafes and eateries which serve many of the nearby office workers. Many of the taller old buildings have been converted into loft style apartments. By night, one can imagine being transported to older times when life was a little simpler...

  1. Wonderful, dramatic street scene with great composition.

  2. I really like finding little lanes like this. Cool image.

  3. I am retired now and haven't been back to my old city office for 18 months. However I used to love having my coffee lunch in this gorgeous part of town.
