Lunch Groups

City Lunch Group

Ex State Bankers are invited to join their mates for a convivial luncheon every 6 weeks or so at the Royal Melbourne Hotel, 629 Bourke St.

The venue is the old Bourke Street West police station which is very handy to the Southern Cross station; ideal for country people.

Visit the Royal Melbourne Hotel site to see the facilities and menus – www.rmh.com.au

Lunch dates alternate between Tuesdays and Wednesdays to cater for baby sitting duties, golf, etc.

Warm up drinks are at high noon (or earlier) in The Governor’s Bar; first on the left as you enter the hotel.

We usually order lunch between 12.30 and 1.00 and move out to our tables in the cell area, at the back, which is reserved for us.

Lunch at the table usually finishes by 3.00 – 3.30, but “coffee” at the bar often goes on for a while.

If you can’t remember your name, don’t worry, we have name badges.

Upcoming luncheon dates are:

2019

  • Tuesday 6 August
  • Wednesday 11 September
  • Tuesday 15 October
  • Wednesday 20 November

Invitations are issued well before each date and only a reply if you intend to attend. The hotel arranges the table when final numbers are known.
