You’re after a function space that offers that something different for your next party that boasts fantastic atmosphere…

Or, you’ve been given the task at work to book the next corporate function and want somewhere with AMAZING food and drinks for great value?

Organising a function can be a labour of love – we get it. That’s why we want to make the process as simple and possible, and have your family, friends or co-workers begging you to organise your next social outing!

A bit about what to expect when hosting a function with us…

The Hof Downtown situated right in the heart of Docklands can cater for up to 350 guests via its four areas – the main restaurant, the front bier hall, upstairs in the mezzanine and outside in the two pod bars. Depending on the style and size of your next function – we have an area that can accommodate.

Newly bought in 2014, The Hof Downtown is the fresh and modern sister outlet to hugely popular and traditional Hofbrauhaus – a Melbourne institution for Bavarian Bier Houses. The Hof Downtown venue boasts contemporary styling with bright and open spacing, though still retaining a strong underlying focus on providing a traditional and authentic experience to customers.

The bier hall furniture pays homage to traditional bier hall styling with long benches and tables for seating, along with high tables and dry bars. The style is authentic and encourages inclusive conversation and sharing of good food and fun.

The upstairs mezzanine, complete with its own bar, has a mixture of formal tales and chairs, along with traditional benches and long share tables. The space can be utilised for private or semi-private parties via use of the partition wall to section off the back and front sections.

Either of the two sectioned off areas can fit up to 30 people sitting, or 45 people standing.

Our two pod bars completely the function area options nicely, as they offer a lovely ambience and atmosphere. The warmer months serve these spaces well for functions after that suit a bier garden, more casual style. The cooler months are also catered for with full surrounding glass to reduce wind and overhead heaters also available.
Please find our standard function packages, however we are more than happy to discuss options and look at creating something customised to suit your event.

If you have a specific budget in mind, style you want to achieve or maybe even something extra special and you just want to see if it’s possible – you’re more than welcome to ask!
