Our Melbourne function venues and accommodation offer modern amenities in stylish settings.

Our Melbourne conference venues boast large tinted windows to allow breathtaking views of the city surrounds. Five pillarless Melbourne function rooms can be configured to suit any size group. All spaces feature soundproof dividing walls, individually controlled air conditioning and lighting, data points and FREE WI-FI. 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.

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.
