Rare 24 hours licensed venue in Melbourne

Welcome To Captain Melville! For over 150 years, the bluestone walls of this famed establishment have provided solace and sustenance to Melbournians and visitors alike. The venue interior has a rustic-romantic feel with its wooden detail. If you and your future spouse are both foodies, then this charming eatery is the perfect destination for you. 


Location is the key! We are conveniently located at the edge of Melbourne CBD, far enough to keep you free from the noise and hustle of the busy streets, but close enough to access all modes of public transport and easy enough to get car parks. 


We have several spaces at Captain Melville that are ideal for a romantic or even casual wedding, including a spacious Indoor Courtyard under glass ceilings that can be closed off to accommodate both ceremony and wedding (Yup! Skylight for your big day on a typical rainy & windy day is totally possible!), a relaxing bar area which is perfect for pre-drinks and a gorgeous covered terrace that is ideal for a intimate ceremony and cozy cocktail wedding.

We got many compliments about Captain Melville. Food-amazing, venue looked incredible, perfect size; all worked wonderfully as a wedding venue. Amazing to work with, listened to all requests and actioned everything we'd agreed. On the night the staff genuinely enjoyed being a part of our celebration. I couldn't be happier!
