Palmerston Hotel

 51 Palmerston Crescent, South Melbourne


South-western corner of King's Way (originally Roy Street) and Palmerston Terrace


I need some confirmation on the Palmerston as it was mainly used by T.A.B. staff, but with some involvement with Control Data engineers stationed at 2 Queen's Road.

Tony Bell confirmed that it was a regular after-hours drinking, but wasn't used that often for lunches as the T.A.B. building had a fully serviced cafeteria on the seventh floor. As a result, the Palmerston has shifted categories from its original "Eats" to "Drinks".
