Richmond is best known for the Asian grocery stores and restaurants which can be found on Victoria Street, nicknamed “Little Saigon”. This part of the city is also home to many hotels, some of which date back to the 19th century. Some of these Victorian-era buildings have been converted into restaurants, bars and multi-purpose venues for hire.
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 roadway 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 there. 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.
It is important to note that with all of these different cost types, rates may be charged per session or for a full day. Also, venues can be contacted directly from our website for clarity on rates and custom package deals.

Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
