The Melbourne Athenaeum is Victoria's oldest cultural institution and still a focus of cultural activity in the heart of the city's Central Business District. Located at 188 Collins Street, (around the corner from the Town Hall and across from the Regent Theatre) this heritage building offers a range of activities including live theatre, comedy, a bistro, retail opal shop (with a range of Australian art for sale) and, of course, the famous Melbourne Athenaeum Library .
