The Press Club

The Press Club

In October 2006 The Press Club opened on the ground floor of the iconic heritage listed Herald and Weekly Times Building. George envisioned The Press Club would be a temple for Hellenic cuisine; a tribute to his culture, cuisine and the hospitality of his family. The Press Club’s cuisine is best described as modern Greek. It takes the best of centuries of Hellenic gastronomy and melds modern techniques, contemporary style and the finest ingredients. The a la carte menu features a combination of wonderful dishes; and the Symposium degustation menu with matched wines is recommended by the team as the best way to enjoy a Press Club experience. George Calombaris works closely with head chef Joe Grbac and his team to create innovative and delicious menus.
