Set in and around the lovingly restored heritage cargo sheds on the Yarra’s edge, Melbourne Public can be found on the banks of Melbourne’s newest drinking and dining secret – South Wharf. With interiors inspired by 1920s industrial flair of polished brass, exposed beams and heritage features, Melbourne Public ensures a memorable experience every time. This dynamic venue can hold a variety of different sized functions.
From a dining room reservation for 10, up to sole use hire for 1,000 people – Melbourne Public is an incredibly versatile bar & restaurant. Citizen, adjoined to Melbourne Public, is a café by day, but moonlights as a private, secluded function space by night. In keeping with Melbourne Public, Citizen has its own twist on the 1920’s industrial flair, featuring vibrant terrazzo tiles, and boasts a fully enclosed glass atrium.
With both venues positioned a leisurely stroll to the CBD, Docklands, Southbank, Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre and Etihad Stadium, they are superb venues for a range of events. Whether it’s a celebratory dinner, product launch, post conference party or a casual gathering, Melbourne Public’s dedicated team can tailor a package to suit any requirement, including AV, staging and styling.
Venue highlights also include: opportunity for live music and entertainment, easy access via public transport, 3,000+ car parking spaces, flexible layout and under-cover & heated outdoor areas.
