Platform 28

Formerly a railway shed, Platform 28 is definitely one of the more unique venues in Melbourne. Located within an arm’s reach distance of Etihad Stadium, it’s part bar, part restaurant, and part collection of unique function venues. Amongst Platform 28’s arsenal of function venues are two outdoor areas and two indoor areas, spread over two levels. Of course, apart from being a slew of function areas, Platform 28 is first and foremost a pub/restaurant that serves up modern Australian fare and pub favourites. Within the relaxed and casual atmosphere of Platform 28 there’s a unique sense of history, one that’s probably a result of the mix of a stylish and contemporary fit-out, with old features (as well as the actual history of the space). The atmosphere is decidedly relaxed, with a dose of sophistication. All of the spaces here are available as function venues, hired for private use or as bookings for smaller groups. This one’s a good pick for post-work drinks, office Christmas parties, and birthday brews with friends.Platform 28 is located on Village Street, just off Bourke Street, in Docklands. A number of trams run along Harbour Esplanade, which is just nearby, and a few minutes’ ride from the CBD.

The First Floor Cool Lounge Space

The First Floor Cool Lounge Space

The first floor lounge is a stylish, modern space that occasionally nods to the rich history of Platform 28. Fun fact: this wasn't always a mega-cool lounge space and bar. We're glad it is now though.
