Which parts of Richmond are the most popular ones for organising functions?

If you're looking for small or cheap function rooms, your best bet is to start with the bars and restaurants around Swan Street. This major road runs the length of Richmond and is where most of the action goes down. Here you’ll find plenty of bars, restaurants and hotels with meeting rooms and corporate facilities. This makes Swan Street a great choice for both corporate functions as well as birthdays and other parties. In this area, you also have the option of a pub-crawl for the die-hards after your event is done. 

On Richmond’s northern border is Victoria Street where you’ll find many of the old Victorian-era hotels converted into event venues. There's a good mix of dining rooms, outdoor spaces and function rooms available for hire. If you’re planning a business event, you’re in luck, as there are also plenty of corporate venues in the area.

For weddings and other large functions, look at the venues south of Swan on Church Street and at the end of Bridge Street before the Yarra River.
