Event description

Description

This new 1 hour tour series will explore the Queen Victoria Building in a whole new way, with access to secret spaces and passageways including a visit to the QVB rooftop courtyard in the cool night air.

There will be old world lanterns and theatrical storytelling, including tales of the QVB resident ghost, Mei Quong Tart. Quong Tart was a prominent Chinese-born merchant who opened an elite teahouse in QVB’s inaugural year of 1898, but was tragically killed following a botched robbery of his store. It is said that he still walks the upper floors of the building at night, watching over the comings and goings of the 121 year old cultural place.

The tour will conclude at Esquire Drink + Dine with a warming Whisk(e)y Highball or Gin & Tonic included in the ticket price.

Tours are limited to 10 guests only.
