docklands function venues

At The Hof Downtown we combine old school Bavarian cuisine with a modern twist. Besides our all-time favourites, we offer a new age of Bavarian cuisine which you have never seen before.


Victoria, this is for you! We are dishing up the greatest Bavarian feast for you and your crew. Celebrate this Christmas with great Bavarian Bier and a Bavarian good time. Please be advised that we have currently moved to our sister venue at 737 Bourke Street Docklands (just opposite Marvel Stadium). For the first time you will be able to experience both the authentic Bavarian flavour of Hofbrauhaus Melbourne and the modern Bavarian experience of The Hof Downtown. Only for a short period of time until we return to our old premises.

Celebrate Traditional German Christmas Eve on 24th December all day long. Or join us for our traditional Christmas Day Lunch on 25th December and have to choice of our Christmas set menu or a la carte options. If you are tired from Boxing Day on 26th December you can join us all day long in our Biergarten and enjoy a cold brew and delicious food.



It’s time to reunite with your friends, family and work mates. From June 1st we will be re-opening our doors! We are back - safe, hungry and very thirsty!

We used the lockdown time to work on our delivery skills, so why don't you have a look on our delivery & take away options if you don't want to make your way all up to 737 Bourke Street?

Our aim during this time is to let you forget the outside world for a moment and enjoy a good time with your friends. While we always have followed strict hygiene policies we have upgraded our venue and service procedures to keep us all safe (you can have a look on our procedures below ‘Get Insight’).

We will be following all government regulations. So please be patient if there are any delays.
There will be different seating times available. You will have the option to select comfort food from our a la carte menu as well as special after work packages (think Bier, Wine and Häppchen) if you want to.

To make it easier for you we have implemented a new digital menu which you can easily access over a QR code on your table via your phone. Order and payment can be safely done over your own device as well.
