Howler consists of four separate spaces that are perfect for product launches, daytime corporate events, and large lunches. Two spaces are available for public use whilst the other two are available for private hire and promise a unique and impressive space for your next event.

Howler is a multi-functional, multifaceted arts hub and bar – this established destination venue hidden within a Brunswick warehouse encapsulates design, music, theatre, cinema, art and a unique night out (or day) all in one.

The architecture at Howler engulfs you without overpowering you and has been nationally and internationally published.

Howler is best known for its indoor - outdoor beer garden. This portion of Howler is an oasis of sound, light and air and forms the public part of the venue. They endeavour to keep these areas open to the public as much as possible although it is possible to book these areas for private lunches Monday to Friday for both large and small groups.

Spaces available for hire at Howler are the Theatre and Gallery Bars. Between them, they can be configured to cater for between 15 and 450 guests.

The Theatre

The Theatre at Howler has hosted everything from corporate launches to high end, bespoke, award presentations as well as musical performances by some of the worlds best known artists.
Howlers established reputation as one of Melbourne’s best arts and music venues puts it in a position to present your next event in a unique space with special attention paid to quality of service and product delivered. Howler’s production backline consists of world class sound and lighting and we have extra wide access for loading should your event require.
Your guests will enjoy beautiful private bars, DMX controlled lighting to set the mood, and food from our well respected kitchen.


The Gallery bar at Howler is a beautifully intimate space. It has hosted events from private engagement parties to industry parties for record launches. The room is warm and engaging, with a private bar and your very own cocktail bartender. It can cater for between 15 and 50 guests.

Combined with the Theatre space, the two can facilitate a function booking for up to 450 guests.

It is also possible to book the entire venue, although such an event would have to have both extremely high patronage and budget for this to occur.
