Located a stone's throw from the iconic MCG and a leisurely stroll from the Fitzroy Gardens — they offer full use of their beautiful venue and several spaces throughout: the large Mural Room overlooking the Melbourne cityscape and Yarra Park, the wood-panelled Lounge and dining rooms that connect to the leafy Courtyard.

This passionate team takes pride in making your event extra special and loves helping you put the “you” into your wedding day.

A stone’s throw from Yarra Park, they knew it could be the perfect venue for a midweek tipple, a celebratory spot for friends and family,  or a must-stop on the way to the MCG. Creating an inviting place where everyone can relax with their favourite drink, treat themselves to something new, and receive exceptional service again and again — this space will remain an iconic location!

We transformed a tired space into a vibrant venue, offering great drinks, memorable experiences, and exceptional service.

You betcha! Rain or shine, we've got your back. There's a bit of a secret handshake (okay, maybe not that secret) involving extra sparkle and staff, but we'll make it a rainy day to remember.

We're the superheroes of catering. Got a dietary thing? We've probably got a menu for it. From veggie lovers to gluten avoiders and even FODMAP aficionados, we're here to create culinary magic. Just a heads up, our only arch-nemesis is Kosher (cue dramatic music) but we can nail that too with a bit of outside help!

Deck the halls, pal! Let your creative flag fly high. Just remember to wrap things up by the time the clock strikes "end of the bash." Our space likes a tidy party, you know?

Oh, cake, our sweet friend! Bring it on. There's a little cake dance involving a few bucks per person to cover the cutlery and napkin party. Wanna slice the glory yourself? Go ahead, be your own cake maestro. And if you've got cupcake dreams, there's no cakeage drama.

We're all about dancing, not driving, so public transport is the name of the game. But if you're planning to roll in on wheels, we've got a secret parking handshake (not really a handshake, though) for private parking if you give us a heads-up.

Our party rules say "music is a must," and we're all for it! Live music? Bring it on! Our license does the moonwalk for private functions with live tunes.

Strike a pose! We've got this cool corner near the dance floor just waiting for a photo booth to set up camp. It's like your own mini paparazzi party.
