When it comes to adding the ‘wow factor’ to your function or event, you simply can’t beat the spectacular views and atmosphere of Melbourne’s rooftop venue scene. Watching the sunset over Melbourne with a drink in hand is sure to impress your guests and make for a memorable event.
Here’s 4 of our favourite rooftop venues in Melbourne.
The Mt View Hotel, located in Richmond, offers two separate Rooftop function spaces, catering for up to 36 seated or 60 standing guests. Boasting an impressive 360 degree view of the CBD skyline, both areas have access to the rooftop bar and feature heaters and umbrellas to keep your guests comfortable during colder months. You can choose between a set menu, canapes or even a BBQ package for those casual occasions. Booking in advance is advised as this venue is a function favourite.
Situated atop of the Rydges Hotel on Swanston St, The Pool Deck is a trendy yet versatile function space able to host up to 300 people. As the name suggests, a large swimming pool takes centre stage in this space (which your guests can choose to enjoy) and they boast unlimited theming and decoration options for your event. With 3 food and beverage packages to choose from, your guests can enjoy delicious meals and refreshments complimented by one of Melbourne’s best views.
The Transit Rooftop Bar, located in Federation Square, is one of Melbourne’s most popular rooftop venues. With views stretching from the MCG to Southbank, your guests can enjoy hot & cold canapes packages ranging from $40 to $80 per head, accompanied by a wide selection of beer, wine and sparkling refreshments. There’s also the option to add a cocktail on arrival for an additional $15 per head. The Transit Rooftop Bar function space books out well in advance, so be sure to get in early to avoid missing out.
Whilst not technically a rooftop venue, we had to include Eureka 89 on this list due to the spectacular views enjoyed from its 89th floor location. Eureka 89 is an exclusive, fine dining function venue that proudly claims to serve Melbourne’s best Degustation menu. There’s 2 private function spaces available, catering for up to 120 seated or 250 standing guests, and a range of refined dining options available starting at $140 per person. If you’re going for the wow factor, you really can’t go past Eureka 89.
