Why you'll love Prince Alfred Carlton

  • Offers private and semi-private spaces, both indoor or on rooftop, across two levels.
  • With AV facilities and affordable event food packages.
  • Located conveniently opposite Melbourne University, with easy access to public transport.

The iconic Prince Alfred Carlton has been a hub of Carlton life since 1926, and after a short closure and an impressive facelift, the 500-person space is back with an incredible rooftop bar and terrace as the cherry on top. No longer a rough and ready pub for students, the Prince Alfred Hotel has been rejuvenated with a quirky interior inspired by British Royalty combined with an array of floral and botanical elements. It’s elegant, fun and the place to go when you want to feel like royalty on a pauper’s budget. The menu features all of your favourite pub classics, plus the added bonus of a rotating container kitchen featuring tasty treats from the likes of Mr Burger, Belles Hot Chicken and more.

Lovely place to hangout for drinks and bar food. The staff are great, very helpful and professional. It gets rather busy in the evenings. We were a big group and had made a reservation prior. The online booking system is very good. Our drinks were served perfectly and the food was delicious too! Looking forward to visiting again sometime soon hopefully!

A random chicken wing cam with my girlfriends burger shoved half inside. My chicken Parma was partially raw which is dangerous. Chips were cold but that's not the worst thing and the server didn't mention that bacon costs $3 more - again not exactly a big problem. Not even an emotional review just want other people to know to stay clear of here and give some of the nicer places a go
