How do I book a pub in Melbourne for my event?
VenueNow can help compare and book the best event spaces in Melbourne to suit your needs. Submit your event brief here and the VenueNow will get in touch within a few hours with a personalised list of the best venues that fit your brief. Once you've compared the recommendations, simply let the VenueNow team know which venues you are interested in. They'll then get in contact with the venues and get a quote with the best pricing as soon as possible. Once you're happy with a quote, the VenueNow will make an introduction to the venue and they'll handle things from there!
Once VenueNow has made an introduction to the venue, you will need to speak with the venue manager about your needs and requirements, and they'll be able to provide you with a final quote. Then once you have decided on dates, times and costs it's time to talk catering! The bar staff are usually happy to work alongside the caterers but don't forget that some bars in Melbourne do provide their own food so make sure this isn't an issue when booking.
If you'd like to progress, venues often have a deposit that you're required to pay up front, typically ranging from 10-50% of the event value. Depending on the venue and your event requirements, you'll then need to pay the remaining balance close to the event date or shortly after.
How many quotes from venues should I compare?
We recommend getting quotes from at least three different venues to compare their packages and offerings. Venues will tend to break down a quote into venue hire, food and beverage packages, and audio/visual equipment services.
