The team at The Oxford Scholar were professional and extremely helpful throughout the whole process of organising our work Christmas Party. The food was delicious, the venue was beautifully presented and the drinks package kept everyone happy. I would definitely recommend having your event at The Oxford Scholar.

From the signage in the lift to the refreshments set up in the room, comfortable chairs, perfect temperature and quiet, this was the perfect space for our team strategy session.

Staff service, ability to accommodate dietary restrictions e.g. FODMAP, kitchen willing to put aside some food for latecomers, quality of food (good feedback - food was really yummy - kudos to chef!).

High minimum spend of $2500 nearly did not put this as a first choice of venue. Reducing to $2000 would definitely improve the rating as a preferred location for other events.

About The Oxford Scholar

Established in 1857 during the heady Victorian gold rush era, The Oxford Scholar Hotel served the area for more than 160 years.

Now situated in the heart of the RMIT City campus, the 'Scholar' has been given a modern new lease of life.

With the creation of a series of bar, dining and event spaces, The Scholar offers a relaxed yet sophisticated function experience.

The in-house menu selections are built upon locally sourced and fresh produce, offering delicious seasonal choices.
