Welcome to our new contemporary day-to-night food and wine bar experience.


Located at ACMI in Fed Square, Hero offers a seasonally driven menu developed by acclaimed Melbourne chef, Karen Martini.

Reflecting Karen's classical, holistic approach to cookery, Hero's menu emphasises simple and straightforward presentations, championing the produce of local farmers and purveyors, organics and seasonality.

Alongside great coffee and food, Hero features a bespoke selection of cocktails, well priced wine offerings from favourite producers around the globe, craft beers and more.
