This is Melbourne's oldest public house, hurtled into the modern age. As far as functions are concerned, Captain Melville offers a few options. Firstly, there's exclusive use of the Indoor Courtyard, a charming and light-filled space for up to 150 guests. Upstairs is the Loch & Key cocktail bar, intimate and saloon-like – it's basically a separate venue in its own right. Ideal for exclusive parties and celebrations, it boasts a balcony overlooking Franklin Street. And lastly, there's the Private Function Room, also ideal for private events, birthdays, engagement parties and end of year celebrations. with very friendly staff, great food and amazing ambience, you will surely have a great night!
