“We had our wedding at Little Henri in November and it was absolutely everything we could have dreamed of and more! Samira, the events manager, was easy to contact and quick to respond. She was friendly and accommodating, answering all of our questions. We had a cocktail-style wedding, and there was more than enough food to go around, our guests were raving about how delicious it all was. The beautiful exposed floorboards, high ceilings, and old bank vault met our vibe of old classic Melbourne perfectly. Everything was stunning, and we would do it all again exactly the same!” – Lilli V.

Little Henri has 3 separate but connected spaces - a dining room plus a covered courtyard plus an open courtyard. These open and flowing spaces can accommodate a myriad of functions from formal plated dinners to contemporary and/or casual cocktail style events.  The courtyards are ideal for wedding ceremonies and/or pre-dinner canapés and drinks. The courtyards also provide the options to have music and dancing away from seated guests, photo booths and other decor items.

Maximum capacity for seated events is 60 guests, and upto 150 guests for cocktail events.

Little Henri is already beautifully decorated and has held many events with minimal or no extra decorations.  It has a banquette area with many plants dangling from industrial style lights and this is ideal for the bridal party.  The covered courtyard is also full of green plants with a garden wall perfect as a backdrop for ceremonies and/or photos.  The open courtyard has ornamental pear trees which are filled with fairy lights and provide a wonderful atmosphere at night.

Of course extra decorations can be brought in to add a personal touch or theme to your event.

The Little Henri team sets up all items and furniture belonging to the venue according to requirements.  The team can also help with setting up items brought in personally.  Any items provided by external vendors, such as props or flowers, should be set up by the vendor.

Front entrance has a ramp. There is a small step down between the dining room and the covered courtyard however a small portable ramp is available.  There is no wheelchair access from covered courtyard to upper courtyard as it has several steps.  However the upper courtyard can be accessed from the back lane way.

Little Henri also has an accessible toilet.

Absolutely! There are 5 beautiful spots across the two courtyards.  To view the spots please see our function pack and the virtual tour on our website.  At Little Henri your ceremony does not have to be under the mercy of Melbourne's weather as we have covered and and uncovered spaces.

There is a small set up fee to have the ceremony onsite. 

Little Henri can cater for most dietary requirements but not for severe allergies. 

Our events co-ordinator - who is also the owner - will help with planning as well as overseeing the execution of the plan on the night.  All details of the events are written up and copies sent to clients and the Little Henri team a week prior to the event to ensure all are aware of all details and program for the night.

Great food, presentation of the food could have been better though, but really friendly staff, great space with multiple areas. Desert was brought out quite late and was expensive for what it was.

We can not fault a thing about our wedding at Little Henri! Samira had it all covered every step of the way, from planning to execution on the night. She was available through email, Zoom & in person any time we had questions & was happy to chat with vendors directly. Our florist was able to install some truly epic installations to frame the arched doors & the ceremony was cosy & intimate in the courtyard. The overall space was a great fit for our 80-ish guests, the dance floor was a total hit & the spill-over space into the courtyard was well utilised (even in winter thanks to the heaters!). Everything ran so smoothly that we were able to completely relax and enjoy the evening with our friends, family & band. We've gotten nothing but positive feedback from our guests & look back with total happiness!

Little Henri was the perfect place for our cocktail-style wedding. Planning with Samira was simple and highly professional, she was open to meeting in-person or over Zoom, and made our wedding run so smoothly that we were able to fully relax and enjoy the event. Little Henri provide high quality and reasonably priced food and drinks packages, which we were super happy with, nobody left hungry. Samira and Little Henri worked well with all our other vendors (celebrant, florist, band) in providing them with all the information they needed to operate in the venue. And, it's an excellent cafe, one that we'll definitely visit each anniversary.

Such a gorgeous venue and was a wonderful setting for our wedding; the lower courtyard with flowers hung over the arched doors was wonderful for the ceremony. Samira - events manager at Little Henri - was responsive and helpful to all our many emails and questions; although she couldn't be there on the day she'd set everything up so well it all ran smoothly and staff were well briefed. I also appreciated Samira's/Little Henri's flexibility and eagerness to help make some of our idea work, whether it was a cheese tower (bought elsewhere) plus a modified grazing table, or the last mintue relocation from the upper to the lower courtyard when rained threatened to arrive. We had about 56 people (including us - the bride and groom) and this was a great number for both the ceremony in the undercover, lower courtyard and for the seated reception after.
