Why you'll love this venue

  • Iconic waterfront venue with versatile outdoor and indoor spaces, perfect for corporate and social functions.
  • Enjoy hearty dishes from brunch to dinner paired with thirst-quenching drinks with bespoke options for events catering.
  • Great location with relaxed warm atmosphere, access to public transports and nearby tourists attractions.
Perched on Federation Wharf and on the edge of Federation Square, This venue is an immensely popular indoor/outdoor bar that looks out onto the Yarra, the gardens beyond, and the Arts Centre. So really, it's not difficult to see why it's seemingly always packed to the rafters during summer. When used in its entirety, this venue comfortably fits up to 600 guests within its many deck areas, and within its bluestone walls. The space has played host to weddings in the past, as well as corporate events, exclusive launch parties, and other important functions that require a setting that's as casually stylish as it is quintessentially Melbourne.

Good place to catch up or meet other people. Centrally located with a great outlook over the Yarra River. $9 pints during happy hour is a bonus. You will need to book a table if you want to eat here, pizzas are good.

The food and atmosphere was perfect for a Sunday catch up. Ordering from the table app meant we were served promptly. Glad we came before the lunch peak time, but also reserved a table, just to be sure.

Friend brought me here as a treat. Only one gluten free option which was the eggplant. I ordered the salad also and asked the staff to make it gluten free removing the bread croutons from the salad. My salad did not come gluten free. Had to send it back to the kitchen and wait another 20min. Friend ordered burger she said it was unseasoned and burnt on one side of the patty. Great views, not so great staff communication or food.

A very busy spot where it pays to book ahead... We didn't but we're able to get a free table with the proviso of being gone before a booking turned up. Food was pretty good, particularly the Lunch Special Cauliflower Steak. Char grilled, it came with a nice sharp Salsa Verde.
