Federal Coffee Palace at 589 Collins Street. Described by the National Trust as possibly "the most extraordinary creation of Melbourne's land boom", it was built in 1888, initially operating as a temperance hotel and only serving tea and fresh milk. By the 1920's it was named the Federal Hotel and was serving alcohol, but was demolished in 1972.

Built in 1888, the Federal Coffee Palace stood at the corner of Collins and King Streets - once the largest hotel in Australia. It went broke, along with many other Melbourne businesses and re-opened in 1923 with an alcohol licence, as the Federal Hotel. It contained over 400 bedrooms, billiards rooms and dining room, with a sign over the entrance which read 'Stay here. You'll be welcome'. Sadly, it was demolished in 1973 for office accommodation
