The room was designed to make the most of the breathtaking sun setting over the water, and I don’t exaggerate when I say this makes for an exquisite backdrop. Mix in some excellent food and service, this place is at the top of the list when it comes to choosing a wedding or party venue.
Can you imagine your next event overlooking the sparkling Melbourne city skyline by night, or glistening Port Phillip Bay by sunset? There are literally thousands of venues in Melbourne, some of them with amazing views, and some of them overlooking the brick wall to the building next door (possibly not the look you are going for!). In this article, We’ve trawled through our list of Melbourne venues to give you our top picks for spaces with fabulous views.
Sails on the Bay, Brighton
Nothing says romance like a beach wedding, yes? And you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars travelling to Bali to get those lovely ocean shots you were hoping for. Just a few minutes from St. Kilda, but just far enough so that it’s not in the midst of the St Kilda beach bathing territory, is Sails on the Bay. This beautiful room, with floor to ceiling windows is practically ON the sand, so you can be sitting metres from the water while sipping champagne and eating their award winning food. The room was designed to make the most of the breathtaking sun setting over the water, and I don’t exaggerate when I say this makes for an exquisite backdrop.

The Olsen Penthouse
So I can say I’ve visited pretty much every single type of hotel room in Melbourne. This room, is BY FAR my favourite. Yes it can be booked out just as any normal hotel room can be (if you’ve got the budget!) but it also makes for a fantastic party venue. More suited to smaller intimate parties due to it’s size, the Olsen penthouse will not disappoint. Decorated in a luxurious modern style and featuring artwork by John Olsen, it makes for a perfect venue for lots of different types of functions; from birthday parties, to product launches, to cocktail parties and even small intimate weddings. The best feature of this penthouse is the huge decked balcony, which hosts an 8 person outdoor spa! Could this place get any cooler? Oh wait, there’s one more thing… when the party’s over there is no need to go home, just walk into the bedroom and fall asleep on the huge and lusciously comfortable king sized bed! zzzzz…
Mon Bijou is set in the penthouse of the Adelphi Hotel. Most well known as the house of the famous Ezard’s restaurant, the standard is what you would expect from the owners. They have truly raised the bar it comes to unique, and luxurious Melbourne venues. Set over two levels, this function space is spectacular and glorious, with 270 degree views of the Melbourne city skyline. The bottom level of the penthouse is stunning, with glamorous and chic French décor, complete with geometric mirrored ceiling and a fully stocked bar. Go upstairs to the rooftop pool, with a retractable roof and drinks offering that will leave the most discerning alcohol lovers satisfied and impressed.
Ok, so this one might seem obvious, but if you’ve ever set foot on level 89 you will know why I just had to put this on the list. As soon as you step out onto the 89th floor of the Eureka Tower, you are greeted with jaw droppingly good views of the entire city all the way out to the distant ‘burbs. I’m talking about completely uninterrupted views, as far as the eye can see. Now the room in itself is also pretty damn cool. The interior décor is very moody and dark, with black walls and red strip lights throughout the ceiling. It gives off a contemporary and masculine appeal that is perfectly suited to corporate events, product launches, and cocktail style weddings.
One more tip… if you’re scared of heights you can just hang out at the bar all night enjoying their awesome cocktails!
