Thataboy Wine Bar

Thataboy Wine Bar is the perfect addition to Melbourne’s CBD

Thataboy Wine Bar

Thataboy Wine Bar is a playful Melburnian take on New York City’s illustrious smoking lounges and bars. Nestled in Katherine Place in the CBD, with the area recently dubbed the NYC part of town, Thataboy was designed to be approachable, clean and understated.

Part of the brief was to create a space that feels like part of the community, where locals can pop in, have a glass of wine and enjoy the brilliant local food. We wanted it to be multi-functional with a number of different spaces for different needs.

Melbourne city is spending lots of money to change the name and the connotation this part of town has. We all know that there is the Paris end of town, which is clean, pristine and has great history, but this area of town also has an interesting history and has really become a destination area for the city.

The front is for the passer-by to have a quick beer, but there are more intimate booths at the back of the space to share a bottle of red. There’s also a high bar section for the pop in who wants to share a cheese board and select a wine from the feature wall.

Standout features for this fitout include the custom wine wall that doubles as a storage facility and a point of sale for locals who want to pick up a bottle of wine on their way home.


The timber bar top from Tongue and Groove adds a dash of rustic charm and the feature lighting by Fat Shack Vintage positioned above the bar and throughout the space help to soften the mood

One of our favourite features is the barrel wall.

We sourced the barrels from one of the producers who feature on the wine list and suspended them on the wall. It adds an earthy feeling to the back of house area and the right frame of timber tones just the right amount of warmth.

It’s all about the process!

Design Phase

Our Consultant and Designer meet with you to discuss your business fitout needs and get a clear perspective on your vision. We will discuss your requirements and what challenges you are currently facing with your workspace; whether it’s a size issue, a functionality improvement or simply a workspace update, we will work with you to find the most suitable commercial fitout solution for your requirements and budget.


We prepare proposals based on the brief from the initial meeting where we go through and plan the look and feel of the proposed business fitout project. This is where we get feedback from you so we can proceed to the next step. We offer cost effective solutions for an affordable fitout, so your budget is always top of mind.

Site Commencement

All costs are agreed upon during this stage and the outline of the project and timelines are discussed. We organise all relevant permits to be approved and issue you with a final Construction Set, Fixtures and Finishes Schedule and a Project Schedule.


We carefully source and recruit the right contractors for each fitout construction job. We work with our team of Designers and suppliers to ensure consistency across the look and feel of the project, and conduct weekly site visits with you so you can check in on the fitout and how it is coming together.

At completion, we conduct a handover to you after ensuring you’ve had a thorough walk through of the new space and make sure you are happy with your completed project. We continue to work with you to take care of any additional needs and ensure they are resolved in readiness for your relocation.
