From restaurants with function rooms in Melbourne to spaces for private events in golf clubs, we’re listing heaps of venues for every kind of event you can think of. Scroll through our amazing listings in Melbourne and then check out our expert advice about choosing the perfect function room for your event.

First and foremost, when choosing a function venue take into account the type of event that you’re planning. This will influence every decision you will make when selecting your perfect venue. The most popular uses for function rooms in Melbourne include:

Birthday parties – Whether it’s your colleague’s crazy 30th birthday bash or a relaxed celebratory dinner, choosing the right venue can make a special day even more memorable. Depending on the style of the party you’re organising, look for venues with amazing food options or ones with a well-stocked bar. If you want to organise something special for the party, talk to the venue manager about whether it would be possible to organise it in your chosen venue.

Why not hire a unique venue for your special celebration? Collingwood-based Easey's offers you a one-of-a-kind opportunity to party on a train. Not only that, the old train wagons are located on a rooftop, so you can add the amazing views of the city to your party! Guest rating: 5.0/5

Corporate event - Choosing the right function room for a corporate event depends on the type of professional event you’re organising. If you’re meeting with your next investor, it’s important to find a professional space that will also grant you privacy for all the important talks. If you’re taking your team out for a day away, look for spaces that have a relaxed atmosphere. A product launch will require a space that can be easily reached and won’t get crowded too easily. Whatever it is, Melbourne has it and you are sure to discover it here at Tagvenue.

On a tight budget and searching for more affordable option in Melbourne? Don’t stress. At Tagvenue we know how to find a function venue that won’t break the bank. Here’s a short list of our handy tips:

  • Go for a venue with a BYO policy – Bringing your own drinks is very likely to help you save you heaps of dollars – same goes for self-catering. We know plenty of function rooms in Melbourne that won’t mind you bringing a couple of bottles or your own food. Cheers!
  • Picking a venue with a reasonable minimum spend is another good idea to cut down on costs. This approach gives you practically free venue hire, as you’re not spending a single cent on the space itself. All you need to do is spend a set amount on food and drinks. Sounds fair, doesn’t it?
  • As a rule of thumb, it’s usually better to go for a small room than a big one that you won’t be able to fill. Hiring a space that’s just the right size will encourage your guests to chat and mingle – and it’s often much cheaper, too. What’s not to like?
  • You might also want to choose from unusual spaces located slightly off the beaten track. We know plenty of unique places (with really attractive price tags) that are available for private hire. See our collection and you’ll be amazed by what you can discover in Melbourne!

Guests Reviews of Function Rooms on Tagvenue

Lana McCartney
Booked The Downstairs Lounge at St LuJa
Thoroughly enjoyed everything about my 30th at St LuJa. The team made it easy and simple to organise and were very accomodating. Great food, great cocktails and the space downstairs feels intimate and homey for a solid 40 people. Even noted my music playing throughout the entire venue when I'd only hired downstairs. Other venues would not do this, and other venues were much stricter on the finish time, while St LuJa's let us hang around in the space til close. Would highly recommend the venue. Great place!
Wendy Hu
Booked Entire Venue at Glamp Bar
Dean has been wonderful to work with and I highly recommend. I hired Glamp as a venue for my sons 1st birthday party and the morning of, the worst possible thing happened - a positive Covid test. I called Dean at 9am (event was supposed to be at 12pm that day) and expected to still have to pay for the event as staff and food had all been prepared but to my surprise Dean offered to put my spend towards another event! This made what was a terrible morning a little bit better. Thank you again Dean and the Glamp team for being so understanding and accomodating.
Mimi Ferrer
Booked Peacock Lounge at The Emerald Peacock
The venue was absolutely perfect for our event & Char was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She made the process so easy & was so accomodating, providing us with a great food & beverage package for our guests. On the night, she even came up to say hello which was a lovely personal touch. Elliott was also fantastic & looked after us on the night, always checking in to make sure we had whatever we needed. The venue itself has a wonderful ambience & the rooftop is extra special.
Belinda Rutledge
Booked Heathrow Boardroom at Best Western Airport Motel & Convention
Location was lovely and the view from the meeting room was lovely. Value for money for the time we were there, definitely great for short or 1/2 day meetings. Staff were lovely although did not acknowledge themselves when they came into the room prior to the commencement of the meeting and I was there on my own. Food was great, sandwiches and cakes were lovely. Hot food was a hit.
Serena SUN
Booked Booths at The George Lounge
We had our engagement party at the George, the staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Would highly recommend, considering how last minute our booking was, but they still took us in and offered us to a great range of drinks and spaces. Great for your next function or just for a drink.
Karena Hull
Booked Boardroom at The Precinct Hotel
Great private room facility for small class training. TV and whiteboard available, booking was easy thanks to RT who was able to answer my questions promptly. Food was delicious and tea and coffee provided for the entire time made the training that much easier.
