ABOUT Hophaus
Waterside Venue Hire

Hophaus is a stunning Southbank functions venue with much to offer, from its showcase deco-dining hall to its enviable location with north-facing waterfront views of the Yarra and Flinders Street Station.

Designed with functions in mind, the various spaces within the venue range from internal dining rooms to sheltered terrace landings, or combinations of both. This set up and layout is ideal for corporate events, cocktail parties, birthdays, engagements and Christmas parties.  There is so much flexibility here too; intimate gatherings for small groups can be hosted just as easily as the big parties, with capacity for up to 350 guests.

The menus have been designed to highlight the freshest and best cuisine developed with their culinary team’s signature styles. The generous food and beverage packages are all delivered with highly personalised and professional service to complement your entire event experience.

Packages include 2 and 3 course sit down options, canape packages, and the popular shared ‘Feasting Menu’ offering guests shared entrees, a choice of a whole spring lamb, whole suckling pig, rotisserie style chicken, or whole beef rump prepared in our coal-pit and served with sides for the table.
