With a setting for every occasion, 61 on High is fully equipped to cater for birthdays, work events, Christmas parties, engagement parties and anything else worth celebrating!

Available from Tuesday to Sunday until 1:30am (Monday available on request), the relaxed dining space caters for sit down functions for 30 guests. Their private function room and bar on the upper level caters comfortably for 80 guests, with cosy relaxed lounges, private bar and gorgeous, minimalist surroundings. Private music is also available.

If outside is more your thing, 61 on High’s rustic Beer Garden is bursting with character. A hand-crafted space with private bar, you and up to 50 guests will enjoy a private and relaxed vibe, covered outdoor seating for that moody Melbourne weather, your music or theirs, delicious drinks and mouth-watering bar food.

With Tram 86 stopping directly outside 61 on High and Westgarth train station only a three-minute stroll away, it has never been easier to host your function at 61 on High.
