GPO Grand is housed within Sydney's historic General Post Office (GPO) opened in 1874; Australia's pre-eminent heritage building at Sydney's most prestigious address, No.1 Martin Place. The transformation of the GPO building into what we have today was undertaken in late 1999.
With its Italian Renaissance features, the lower ground floor of the GPO is not only a food and lifestyle experience, but also offers a rare glimpse at Sydney's architectural heritage, such as the original tank stream which is open to the public for viewing.
Since taking over the GPO venues the company has moved quickly to transform the premises from primarily a food emporium offering fresh produce, fresh fish, fresh meat etc together with in-house offerings to one which has focused on the provision of a total food, beverage and entertainment to be experienced at the venue.
Sydney's premier historical building has been transformed into a unique, drink, dine, entertainment and event experience comprising 14 of the city's most diverse and awarded venues.
