How to choose a private dining room in Melbourne?

Our diverse collection of private dining rooms spans the most impressive areas of Melbourne, so you’re sure to find one that meets all your needs. And the cherry on top? We have listed our very own tips below to make the venue-booking process as easy as pie. Start reading and happy planning!

  • Ask the manager to help you with the menu selection –  If you struggle with choosing the right food to serve at your event, don’t hesitate to ask the venue manager for help! Be open for suggestions and ask about à la carte, set menus, or tailor-made packages. The people responsible for organising private dining events in Melbourne know their way around the table. And we’re more than sure that the venue manager will be happy to help you create a very special menu that will spoil everyone’s palate.
  • Remember to check the venue's policy – Keen on bringing your own liquor or want to order at the bar? Make sure the dining room of your choice allows BYO alcohol or has a licence. In the case of BYO, you may expect additional corkage fees. Don’t hesitate to ask the venue manager about any additional fees before you sign the contract. They’re sure to explain everything to you so that you can have the best experience possible.
  • Take care of the details – A private dinner makes an excellent occasion for getting creative! It is a good idea to have seats assigned to each of the guests and mark them with beautiful little name cards – a nice detail to begin with, isn’t it? Have a closer look at the private dining space you’re interested in and make the right use of it. You can add your own extra touches with flowers and the colour scheme. Aside from the food, the interior and the setting are some of the factors that get people talking. Don’t miss the opportunity and think about how you envision the whole event! 

How to find a private dining room on a budget?

On a tight budget? Don’t sweat it. Below, we’ve listed some tips that will help you find the perfect space that matches your price range. 

  • Choose a less popular district – Some areas of Melbourne are particularly popular for private dining, which means the prices tend to be higher, too. How about checking out venues in less famous areas? They may offer the same quality, but for a much lower price. With Tagvenue, finding hidden gems becomes much easier. We’re listing amazing private dining rooms for hire in all parts of the city, so don’t forget to browse our curated list – you never know what you’re going to discover!
  • Pick a small dining room – If you’re organising an event for a limited number of guests, there’s no need to go overboard. Melbourne is full of small private dining rooms for intimate functions that will be the perfect match and offer you a much-needed privacy. 
  • Focus on special deals – Some restaurants in Melbourne have special package offers that make excellent value for money. Don’t be shy to discuss that with the venue manager! You can also ask for an individual offer that will be based on your guest number and needs.

How early should I book a private dining room for my event in Melbourne?

To book the perfect private room for your function, you should start looking at least several months in advance. This way, you'll have time to compare options and find the best deal. Also, many of our most popular restaurants fill up quickly, so be sure to secure your reservation as soon as possible, ideally between 8 to 6 weeks in advance.

What are some unusual restaurants with private dining rooms in Melbourne?

When looking for the best restaurants with private dining rooms in Melbourne it’s good to do some research from well-known sources with credible reviews. These are sure to give you a good idea of the type of service and quality to expect. Check out some of our favourites:

  • The George on Collins - This spacious cellar will impress your guests with beautiful, elegant decor and delicious menu options.

Is a semi-private dining room and private dining room the same thing?

No, they are not! We know that it may be a bit confusing, so here’s our short explanation:

Semi-private dining room - This type of room is not fully private. You’ll be sitting in the main dining area, separated from other food-enjoyers with a thin wall or a curtain. This can add charm to the whole event experience, or it may affect your event if you really want to enjoy yourself in peace.

Private dining room - This type of room offers complete privacy. You’ll have a separate room only to yourselves, which means you won’t be disturbed by any noise coming from the main dining room. It’s the perfect option for anyone who’d like to celebrate in a much-needed privacy. 

Take some time to decide which option works best for your event, and then start browsing.

Good food, the room was really nice. Had the calamari to start with then had the choice of barramundi or salmon with roasted vegetables. It was exactly what we needed for a work dinner. Emma, the Venue Manager, was great to work with too!
