The Duckboard Secret

The Duckboard SecretHidden in one of Melbourne's most well-known lanes for street art and restaurant dining. This venue offers a unique and fresh approach for your next function with a sophisticated and modern decor. Designed by local architecture firm, the space embodies a minimalistic aesthetic that embraces the existing character of the building.An outstanding cantilevered steel and American oak banquette seat expresses the main downstairs dining space and produces a feel of lightness to the small area. Timber and glass dividers have also been used to sector this challengingly tight area, splitting diners from the entrance and delicately conjuring visions of old-fashioned Chinese room dividers.Spread across the two slim floors of a late 19th century brick warehouse, the present building boasts a colourful history – the building was apparently used by 1920s gangster Squizzy Taylor – and spectacular original features comprising robust Oregon timber trusses, raw brickwork, timber flooring, and graffiti.A material palette of American Oak with terrazzo and brick tiles praises these robust characteristics, while leather detailing and custom designed carpets offer a softness to the area.The perfect setting for a private dinner or cocktail with the authentic backdrop that infuses the essence of Melbourne.
