ABOUT BearBrass
Waterfront Function Venues

BearBrass in Southgate, Melbourne brings a spark of excitement to the banks of the Yarra. Offering up a striking riverside wining and dining destination, they are an ideal venue to host a variety of functions & events including corporate events, cocktail parties, birthdays, engagements, Christmas celebrations, and more.

This Southbank function venue has become somewhat of an institution, with its informal yet stylish environment drawing patrons in to this social and ever-popular suburb for over a decade. Consider how well this setting translates to functions – either on the large riverside terrace, the internal dining room or public bar, with space for 10-400 guests.

With a combination of internal and terrace spaces available BearBrass can cater to any event. This venue has 4 flexible spaces that can be utilised alone or together.

Their internal semi-private dining space can cater up to 42 guests seated, or when combined with the front and bar terrace, up to 200 guests standing. Both terrace spaces can be utilised separately accommodating up to 80 guests on the front terrace and up to 120 guests on the bar terrace. They also have the back bar space perfect for smaller cocktail functions of up to 40 guests with your own bar.

The modern Australian menus are a sure crowd pleaser, and provide great flexibility. The menu options include a-la-carte, set menu dining, canapé, and sharing packages and platters for more informal events. All of these options can be tailored to meet your specific requirements or budget and will be delivered with personalised and professional service.
