Collins Street is getting a sprawling, wild new diner in Feb 2018

Morgan McGlone (of Belle's Hot Chicken fame) will be joining forces with dynamic duo Michael Delany and Jaimie Wirth (of International Worldwide, who are responsible for the creative direction of bars like Flinders, the Forresters and House of Crabs in Sydney) to open Natural History on Collins Street. Divided into two sections, the venture will house a streetfront café as well as a 350-seat big-city bar and grill. 

Natural History Café will dish out coffees and porchetta rolls from 7am, while the grill menu will take cues from best diners and bistros of NY and the Southern states. You'll be able to order up steak tartare topped with fried oysters and tendon chips; prawn cocktails; octopus with almond romesco; peach cobbler and key lime pie.

The interiors will take inspiration from the great museums of the world – we're imagining something a little like Planet Hollywood meets the Natural History Museum, with less celebrity regalia and a touch more style – and they've enlisted artist, Vanja Zaric to create a 15-metre taxidermy diorama. 


Venue name: Natural History
Address: 401 Collins St
