Melbourne Public - venues

Melbourne Public

Set in and around the lovingly restored heritage cargo sheds on the Yarra’s edge, the Darcy family brings their love of good food and wine to the thriving South Wharf Promenade with Melbourne Public.

With interiors inspired by 1920s industrial flair of polished brass, exposed beams and heritage features, Melbourne Public celebrates the best of Melbourne’s past and present, in true Australian pub style. Positioned a leisurely stroll to the CBD, Docklands, Southbank, Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre and Etihad Stadium, this is a superb venue for a range of events. Whether it’s a celebratory dinner, product launch, post conference party or a casual gathering, Melbourne Public’s team can tailor a package to suit any requirement, ensuring a memorable experience every time.

The Bar Area sees industrial flair and style injected across a large open-plan bar, creating an impressive space perfect for your next function. The Dining Room’s elevated space behind the main bar offers an exclusive dining experience. Citizen Café & Bar is ideal for casual yet private affairs, offering private access and a combination of indoor and outdoor areas. The north facing Terrace Deck welcomes functions all year round with its retractable rooftop and overhead heating, and exclusive use of the entire venue is available upon request.

Melbourne Public was fantastic, really close to our daytime venue (which was helpful considering the weather that day!) and they ticked all the boxes with regard to our requirements. Everyone had a great evening - thanks again!
