Northern Suburbs Venues Hire Guide

Starting just north of the city centre and stretching further afield, the northern suburbs offer a setting full of fun and culture, without having to set your foot in the busyness of the city centre. It’s an endlessly interesting area, with an eclectic mix of vibes. Each district has something a bit different to offer, from hipster hubs to cafe culture havens, and seamlessly combines city skyline views with chilled out open green spaces.

Melbourne’s northern suburbs’ venues match its vibe perfectly; you won’t find a shortage of quirky, stylish function venues here. It’s a great place to hold any kind of function, with a whole plethora of art-covered bars, beer gardens, studio spaces and cafes filled with board games. If you’re after something a little more conventional, there are also plenty of great hotel function rooms that offer their own charm!

Transport in the area is easy and straightforward. The more central area can be accessed in no time via Melbourne’s efficient tram service, and local buses and trains easily connect the outer suburbs. Melbourne’s airport is also within fairly easy reach, sitting about an hour away by public transport or 20 minutes via taxi.

Melbourne’s northern suburbs covers a whole range of districts, many of which have some great venues to offer! With so much choice, we know it can be hard to know where to start, so we’ve broken down a few of the most popular areas for function room hire in the area!

  • Essendon – One of Melbourne’s most historic suburbs, Essendon is a green and leafy destination for events not too far from the city, but far enough to forget the hubbub! Mt Alexander Road, the main road running through the area, is home to a range of laid-back cafes, restaurants and hotels offering function rooms to hire. The dining scene is also quite diverse, from Instagram-friendly milkshakes to vegan Mexican cuisine.
  • Fitzroy – Fitzroy is fondly known for its hipster vibes and is full of cafes and restaurants serving organic and vegetarian food and vintage boutiques. Sitting a little closer to central Melbourne, this is the go-to area for function rooms within eccentric hotels, cosy cocktail bars (many of them with rooftop terraces for hire) and quirky cafes. All this is topped with some unique street art for good measure!
  • Brunswick – A bit of an alternative suburb, Brunswick is full of colourful characters and interesting function venues to match, from warehouse and studio spaces to cafes! The community spirit of the area is sure to make you feel welcome.

FAQs about Function Rooms in Northern Suburbs

Which are the best function rooms for hire in the Northern Suburbs?

Some of our favourite function rooms are:

Mercure North Melbourne - If you're looking for a variety of professional function spaces, this venue near Royal Park is the perfect choice! With rooms ranging in capacity from 30 to 150 guests, it offers a setting suitable for business meetings, private celebrations, and everything in-between.

Can I hire outside catering or have a BYOB party in a function room?

The answer to this question will largely depend on the space, for instance, rooms that are designed more for conferences and meetings may allow for external catering, especially if there is no kitchen on the premises. Minimum spend event hires will seldom allow for this, since you are required to spend a certain amount of money on food and drink as part of the terms of hire. Restaurants may allow for BYOB (which is a great money saver) but most of these types of venues will not allow outside catering, since they have a full staff and a kitchen already on site.

How can I keep costs down when hosting a party in a function room?

You don’t always have to worry about breaking the bank when you are planning a party in a function room. These spaces are often some of the more affordable options you will come across. One of the best ways to keep costs to a minimum is to keep your guest list small. Not having too many extra guests is a sure fire way to keep your spending under control, because not only can you hire a smaller space, but you will also be able to spend less on food and drinks.

The building was lovely, the room was beautiful and spacious. Got one free park which was good in the visitors spot. Very nicely decorated and good facilities. The Nespresso coffee machine was heaven sent as well as the morning tea scones. The staff were friendly, helpful and kind.
