    About the function space

    What better way to celebrate than under the stars?
    This Rooftop Beer Garden is drenched in moonlight and boasts an automatic retractable roof that can be adjusted according to the changeable Melbourne conditions. It covers about 60% of the space when it’s out. That makes it ideal for all seasons.
    Your own private bar is housed in a delightful cabana hut, and will serve your chosen drinks including tap beer. Meanwhile your party food will be crafted in our venue kitchen and handed around your alfresco soiree.
