Trunk Melbourne

There’s quite a bit of history to Trunk Melbourne. Way back in the 19th century day, it was a synagogue. Before that, we’re not entirely sure what it was, but certainly it was the spot where a Coral Tree began growing - that tree’s now 150 years old, is heritage listed, and is the titular ‘Trunk’ of the popular bar/restaurant/diner. Trunk has quite a few options when it comes to being a function venue. Firstly, there’s the Rintel Room, a private function room that fits up to 40 guests sitting or 80 standing. Then there’s the restaurant proper, the outdoor courtyard, as well as the honey garden out the back. The courtyard especially makes for a spectacular fairy-light laden space at night. Trunk’s the kind of place you’d have a wedding, engagement, product launch, fashion show or just a really, really special birthday. Or you know, a dinner just because. Trunk’s almost ridiculously popular for a reason, and it’s not just because there’s a pretty tree in the front. Trunk is located on Exhibition Street, in between La Trobe and Lonsdale Streets.
