As we enter the busy period for Weddings & Corporate Functions, reserving your choice of functions room at Mr Hobson (upstairs or downstairs) will secure you, your preferred date. It’s no surprise that Spring, Summer and Autumn are the busiest seasons of the year and this is also the time for work Christmas and end-of-year parties.

Choosing your functions venue in Melbourne allows you to either spend time with your colleagues and/or guests within the confines of four walls or by enjoying the infinity of ocean and sunset views combined with uncompromising catering. So, if you are having a day-time party or a lunch function in Melbourne, make the scenery a bonus part of the excitement and memories at Mr Hobson.

The work Christmas booking rush has already started. Mr Hobson gives you a choice of one of two rooms for day-time or evening functions. Choose upstairs and or downstairs, both with views and both exclusively booked for you and your guests. The functions capacity at peak times range from small groups of 60 guests  and up to around 140 seated; for stand-up / cocktail functions, we can accommodate around 170 guests. Smaller groups can book a table, fully set-up in the restaurant, which also has views.

Your functions, day or evening can be as lavish or casual as you want. Speak to our functions manager about your arrangements and if you are planning for 2015, do not delay… there are only a few months left. You will be provided with options of day, night, upstairs, downstairs or in the restaurant (for smaller groups) and the choice of food & beverage packages. If your function is to have a theme, let us know as well, as we have several functions’ decorators who will be willing to assist you if they are not booked out. There are not many inner-city functions venues in Melbourne with ocean views; this is why we are booked out early on popular dates and during peak season.

Weddings in Melbourne peak from September and this lasts until early May. With the average wedding booking timeframe in recent years moving from two years in advance to around 12 months, for us, it feels like a rush. With various wedding suppliers involved in co-ordinating that one magic day, we know and understand the process through years of experience. Come and visit our very versatile functions rooms where we can set up the theme to be classic, modern, alternative and everything in between. It’s up to your dreams and visions – what you have as a bonus is a historic Port Melbourne backdrop with landmarks, the ever-present sunset and ocean. Your photographer will not need to venture far away to capture that magical wedding shot.

The beauty is that you can plan a beach wedding and if the weather does not want to play fair, you can simply have your ceremony indoors in our venue before your booked function!

If choices are what you are after, we have given you plenty. We have done breakfast weddings; day weddings; evening weddings; and hosted receptions for many beach wedding ceremonies. The only thing that we cannot control is time ticking away and we are always sorry to say no to so many during peak times.

We are here for you and your functions. Simply contact us to book or make a time to see us.
