Located on the stunning waters of Port Phillip Bay, The Baths Middle Brighton is a relaxed coastal venue. The second floor is perfect for receptions, and ceremonies can occur on the private balcony that overlooks the bay towards the city, or you can take over the entire venue. All events are individually tailored, making The Baths one of Melbourne’s most versatile wedding venues.

The Baths Middle Brighton holds an incredibly desirable spot, located right on the beachfront with uninterrupted views over Port Phillip Bay. Walking distance from the world-famous Beach Boxes, and the water’s edge just metres away, couples seeking a beach wedding flock to The Baths Middle Brighton. A popular restaurant with gorgeous coastal-inspired spaces, The Baths specialises in individually tailored functions – particularly breathtaking weddings.

 

“We held the ceremony on the deck followed by a sit-down reception for 100. All of the staff were always incredibly down-to-earth and friendly, and Rohana the event organiser was exceptional - she was responsive, flexible and provided helpful advice along the way. We had so many compliments on the venue - it looked beautiful and the food and wine was delicious. We particularly enjoyed the flexibility of having a menu where guests could select their meal.” Sasha U

 

The experienced events team works closely with couples to curate unique experiences, ensuring no two weddings held within the venue are alike. If your guest list is creeping over 100, you’re able to capitalise on exclusive hire of the entire venue, and for more intimate events, just head upstairs to the City Room. This spacious coastal room can accommodate cocktail-style and seated receptions and overlooks one of Melbourne’s only remaining sea baths. White decor and furnishings are complemented by the abundance of natural light flooding through the floor-to-ceiling windows. For micro-weddings, you may choose to utilise the private dining room on the second floor.

 

From the second floor, you’ll have access to two private deckings. The main deck is perfect for outdoor ceremonies, where Port Phillip Bay becomes the stunning backdrop to your vows. Your ceremony will enjoy an elegant coastal aesthetic with a simple timber arbour, floral arrangements, and chic white deck furniture. In the event of wet weather, your ceremony can be moved inside the City Room.

 

The culinary team at The Baths Middle Brighton create delicious, fresh food inspired by Mediterranean dishes. The extensive menu comes as cocktail canapes, alternate drop, banquets, and shared plates. They offer a range of vegetarian and vegan options, as well as dairy- and gluten-free alternatives.

 

“Everything about this venue and the staff was exceptional. At the last minute we needed to implement our wet weather plan and the staff made this process easy and seamless. The venue set up was perfect and the food and service was divine. We would 1000% recommend The Baths as a wedding venue.” Rachel W

The Baths was a fantastic venue to host our wedding celebrations! Key standouts: 1. Wedding Coordinator. As soon as we met Rohana, the wedding coordinator at the Baths, we knew we'd be in safe hands. She is very organised, pays attention to what you say, great attention to detail, and has a can-do attitude; 2. Flexibility of the venue. We really appreciated the venues efforts to accommodate our requests. This allowed us to bring in our individual touches to the wedding and create a memorable event for our guests. We felt the venue's focus was to make sure that we and our guests had the best night. 3. Food and Service. We received many compliments from our guests for the delicious food and great wine list. 4. The venue itself is beautiful - floor to ceiling views on the bay and the Melbourne city skyline, with outdoor decks. Great atmosphere!

Our wedding here was a brilliant affair. Not for us the usual two or three way drop of pre-selected meals. We wanted guests to be presented with an a.la.carte menu from which they could choose. This meant while everyone at a table was served simultaneously, each table was served when their meals were ready. Not your average wedding. The result? We had the most wonderful time! Everything worked beautifully. The evening’s pace, the food quality, the staff’s service… It all came together making [as my nephew remarked] the happiest wedding he has attended. Guests were bowled over by the venue and location. Not sure whether you have ever hosted weddings like this, but your team handled it perfectly. Both the General_Manager and Executive_Chef joined Rohanna [Event_Manager], for our final meeting. Their attendance made us feel very special and we knew The.Baths understood precisely the dinner party we wanted to host.

Highly recommended, staff were amazing, friendly and the food was fantastic. Our guests loved the venue with views of the beach and city and commented on how attentive the staff were. Rohana the events manager made my life so easy and i can't thank her enough for all her help.

We would highly recommend The Baths as a wedding venue. We held the ceremony on the deck followed by a sit-down reception for 100. All of the staff were always incredibly down-to-earth and friendly, and Rohana the event organiser was exceptional - she was responsive, flexible and provided helpful advice along the way. We had so many compliments on the venue - it looked beautiful and the food and wine was delicious. We particularly enjoyed the flexibility of having a menu where guests could select their meal. It is a stunning location thanks to the floor to ceiling windows and views of the city. This also has the benefit of not needing much in the way of styling or decorations. The entire wedding planning process was enjoyable, organised and smooth thanks to the wonderful support provided by The Baths.

When we decided have a small wedding, The Baths Middle Brighton is the one in our pocket list as we like the beach view and city view. Their private function room just as perfect as the numbers of guests can fit in. The staffs are friendly and very helpful. Any requests they will do the best to fill us full. All ours guests are very impressive of food. Was an amazing day ever. Highly recommend.

The team at The Baths Middle Brighton were exceptional! From the moment we booked to the day itself nothing was too much trouble they made the whole process seamless! They were flexible, accommodating, and knowledgeable. Absolute pleasure to deal with. On the day of our wedding everything went perfectly with all the guests looked after ensuring they had drinks and were well fed. The people with dietary requirements were well accommodated. Thank you to The Baths team for hosting the best day of our lives! The atmosphere of the venue was amazing.

We were delighted with the way our wedding reception was conducted at The Baths Middle Brighton. It was a stand-up event and every aspect of the planning was expertly handled with all our questions and concerns being competently and professionally addressed. On the occasion, the staff were very caring and obliging, taking great care to ensure that all members of the family and our guests felt welcome and pampered by the service. The food was excellent: hot, plentiful and delicious; we are still receiving compliments many weeks after. In the planning stages, we had concerns about how well the food and drinks could be circulated in a crowded room, but these turned out to be baseless. The kitchen staff, waiters and floor manager were expert at ensuring that everyone was well-catered for and all guests left the reception commenting on the masses of fabulous food and the generosity of the drinks. The venue itself is a fabulous location. The view of the city lights, the moon across the sea, the different areas within the venue allowing some seating, a dance floor, photo booth and casual area made this a perfect place for our event. We had very little to do on the day, only delivering cakes and floral arrangements and this meant that we had quite a stress free lead-up to the ceremony and reception. The staff took delivery quickly and efficiently after serving a lunch and the resulting appearance of the room was exactly as we had envisaged it to be. We can only compliment Events Manager Rohana, Restaurant Manager Ben and the rest of the team at The Baths Middle Brighton on the brilliant job they did for us. We had a most memorable evening and recommend them highly.

Rohana, the Event Manager, was amazing. She made sure everything ran smoothly on the day and was a big support in the lead up. The venue is stunning and the food was delicious. The wait staff were perfect on the night. I would definitely recommend!

It was our favorite choice to get married and the place is gorgeous. Later we had decided to get married in our witnesses house which is incredible so we just had a dinner in The Baths Middle Brighton with our family.

6 Apr 2019

Where do I begin! From the moment I met Rohana at The Baths, I knew we were in good hands. Rohana took the time to go through the wedding packages and really listened to what type of wedding we were after. Rohana kept in touch with us throughout the whole process and this really helped with stress. On the day, the ceremony and reception was soo smooth, all staff were professional and friendly. Highly recommend The Baths for weddings, the view speaks for itself!

5 Apr 2019

We just want to thank you for absolutely everything. Not only was the lead up and planning an absolute pleasure, our day literally ran perfectly and was more than we ever could have dreamed of. Thank you so much for being so professional, understanding and patient and working with us to plan the day. Every single detail on the day was perfect. The layout of the restaurant and tables was better than we pictured in our heads in the lead up, the food was incredible, the service was outstanding. Every single one of our guests has raved to us about how beautiful the venue was, how delicious the food was and how amazing the service was. Thank you from the absolute bottom of our hearts.

31 Mar 2019

Hi Rohana, Thank you for all of your assistance leading up to and on our wedding day. We had such a wonderful day celebrating and had lots of compliments on our perfect venue. Despite the cold we are so glad we got to do some photos on the pier, they are absolutely stunning so thank you for braving the cold with us too!

24 Mar 2019

Thank you for your superb management of this event. I appreciate it’s not an easy task with constant change. Your professionalism and calm pragmatic approach is a credit to you translating our day to reflect exactly what we desired for all. Well done! Simon & Penny
