About the function space

Transport Public Bar is fantastically located right in the centre of Melbourne and close to public transport and taxis, sporting arenas and local attractions.

The front Sunroom is a supreme private area which overlooks iconic Flinders Street Station. It gives your guests an exclusive bar and staff, and gorgeous sparkling city views.

You also get glimpses of the main bar area throughout the roped off doorway which separates you from the rest of the venue.

Our party food is made deliciously fresh in our onsite kitchen by our expert team.

Sip champers and clink glasses as the trains pull in and the fresh night air and the sounds of the city envelop your party.
