Rydges Melbourne (CBD)
Venues & Events
You’ll be spoilt for choice with our flexible Melbourne function rooms including the eclectic Bobby McGee’s and Locanda Private Dining.
Rydges Melbourne takes its events seriously, dedicating the complete first floor to hosting lavish wedding ceremonies, social soirees, and productive business and board meetings. Our Melbourne function venues and accommodation offer modern amenities in stylish settings. Our location in Melbourne CBD at the heart of the theatre district puts Her Majesty’s Theatre, the Princess Theatre, Comedy Theatre, Athenaeum and the Regent Theatre all moments away. Guests will appreciate the proximity to vibrant Chinatown, dynamic Federation Square and short walk to world-famous shopping at Bourke Street Mall and designer boutiques of Collins Street.
With names such as Chicago, Chorus Line, Phantom and Carousel, all of our Melbourne function rooms with flexible space are named after Broadway musical classics, paying tribute to Rydges Melbourne’s theatrical neighbours. For events with a difference Bobby McGee’s boasts eclectic décor and themed paraphernalia in a vibrant atmosphere. Once a mainstay in Melbourne’s nightclub history, the Bobby McGee’s is ideal for a Melbourne wedding or relaxed business meeting. The space features three entrances, including a secret passage, as well as modern sound, lighting and music systems, dance floor, stages and changing rooms for entertainers. A number of big screens are also available.
If you are planning a lunch, dinner or cocktail party, our Private Dining Room at Locanda is ideal. Partially sectioned off from the main restaurant by outstanding floor to ceiling glass wine cellars, there are a range of menu options and our friendly team at Locanda are more than happy to assist in creating a customised menu for your special event.
