Why you'll love Spice Market Melbourne

  • Features antique decors, ceiling with 25,000 sparkling Swarovski crystals, 20 premium versatile lounges and multiple bars.
  • Offers premium beverages, including the signature Turkish Delight Martini and a menu of Mezze style dishes of authentic Middle Eastern and Oriental flavours.
  • Melbourne's iconic bar, lounge, and nightlife venue with ladies night, the best DJs, private lounges for hire, and live music.

The lavish Spice Market takes its inspiration from the ancient Spice Route travelled by traders of old and has been exquisitely furnished to reflect this famous journey from Asia Minor through to the Far East.

Honouring the Melbourne tradition of laneways and discovery, Spice Market is entered from Beaney Lane, off Russell Street, a laneway that sits between the Louis Vuitton store and the Grand Hyatt Melbourne Hotel.

Upon entering the subterranean world of Spice Market, you are transported to a more exotic time and place. Owners, Dean & Geremy Lucas, travelled the world collecting antiques, unique furniture and objects of art, combining them with luxe fabrics, abundant colour, and handcrafted ceramic and glass mosaics, all rich in every detail.

This undeniably dazzling venue offers a large range of room and lounge options for functions and events. With over 20 premium lounges and other versatile function spaces, groups of 6 to 600 can be accommodated. Additionally, our function food & beverage menu options are designed to suit almost any budget. Spice Market offers minimum spend and package-based booth hire for groups great and small.

Mystic ambient! And above average bar with nice food (would not say a full star restaurant). We had a pleasant night however we missed the dance and party! The setup at the back is surprisingly culture rich with all the bells and whistles. If you are looking for a bar, but need more than a bar! Less noise, som coziness!, and enhanced experience, Spice Market is definitely the go to.

Among my personal favorites for various reasons, the establishment boasts an impressive and aesthetically pleasing decor. The private rooms exude an air of sophistication and elegance. Ample space is provided on the dance floor, and there is a captivating bird cage for those inclined to showcase their dancing prowess. Music commences at approximately 8:00 PM, allowing ample time for cordial conversations with friends or colleagues without the hindrance of excessive noise. A commendable dress code is enforced to maintain a refined and professional ambiance.

I can't express enough gratitude for Heather and the entire team who made my birthday party an absolute blast! From the moment I contacted Heather to organise the event, she was incredibly attentive, creative, and accommodating to all of my requests. She truly went above and beyond to ensure every detail was perfect. The venue manager, along with the bar staff and security, were all exceptional in their professionalism and dedication to making sure everyone had a fantastic time. They were efficient, friendly, and made sure everything ran smoothly throughout the night. Thanks to Heather and the wonderful team, my birthday party was a memorable experience for me and all of my guests. I highly recommend their services to anyone looking to host an event. Five stars all around!

Spice market is a nice bar and club venue. Gets a bit warm during the warm summer nights as it is underground. Great bar staff and drink options. There's plenty of booths as well for smaller groups to sit-down, chat and enjoy a drink together.

I love this venue. It is so atmospheric, you are surrounded by statues in a subterranean cavern and I also like the sandstone carvings area. It makes you feel like you have been transported to an ancient time- linked to a modern world with lighting, technology and cocktails.
