Much like the name suggests, Protagonist promises to play a lead role in creating a distinctive and memorable first impression at Arts Centre Melbourne.
Protagonist is defined by striking architectural mesh, akin to a bronze curtain that is raised as the café opens in the morning and then lowered at night to signify end of service. The menu has been created from the produce of local growers and suppliers and inspired by a wide range of multicultural influences, including simple yet clever reinterpretations of the classic Australian toastie. Popular for your morning coffee fix, Protagonist serves up custom coffee blends, freshly baked cakes and biscuits, and savoury snacks in the open-air surrounds on the forecourt. Or sit back and enjoy pre-show drinks before a performance.
