The Dan OConnel Hotel Carlton
Built in 1884, the Dan O’Connell has been keeping locals hydrated for well over a hundred years. While an incredibly old and rather regal looking building, there’s thankfully little that’s antiquated or stuffy about ‘the Dan’. Playing host to open mic nights, trivia, and the biggest annual St Patrick’s Day celebrations in Melbourne,the Dan O’Connell is a bona fide Carlton fixture.When it comes to functions, the Dan O’Connell has a dedicated 100-guest capacity function room, with a private bar and flexible layout. Located north of the CBD, in Carlton, the Dan O’Connell is far enough from the city for there to be trees and grass around, and close enough for a bike or tram ride to see you there in no time. The 96 tram travels down nearby Nicholson Street to/from the CBD, making it a convenient option.
