About Us



Hidden City Secrets has come a long way since the early days of the [HPSS] magazine, the quintessential guide to the hidden spots in Melbourne, having moved from ink to web with sites now in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Adelaide launching soon – we have all the spots covered.

What we do?

We know that finding the right venue can be more stressful that planning the event itself, so we are trying to ease the stress and help you out. We endeavour to keep up to date with latest openings and top rated venues, with that being said, all the venues listed on Hidden City Secrets have been thoroughly researched and visited to ensure that all the venues we promote meet your expectations.

Our team are constantly working with the best venues around the country to ensure you are able to find the best bars to host your work drinks, a restaurant for a special dinner with friends, or function room or venue to host your next special occasion. We have a multitude of venue hire options, from big to small and even the unique – you’re bound to find an event space suited to you.

Simply select what type of venue you are searching for, for example, a function venue, then decide what type of venue, for example a warehouse venue or a cocktail venue, finally, choose your area and let us compile a list of venues that match your needs.

If you would like to recommend a Bar, Restaurant or Function Venue to be featured on the [HCS] website contact us here

Kind regards,
