About the function space

Located in buzzing Chapel Street - the hub of Melbourne's nightlife, Circus Bar & Nightclub is the perfect place to impress your guests.

Circus radiates a glamorous yet warm, comfortable ambiance. It is perfect for everything from a relaxed soiree with friends sipping champagne, to hitting the dance floor grooving to the latest tunes.

In the 'Moulin Rouge' themed Main Bar, enter a world of French decadence and style. Check into the cloak room, then sink into the plush leather booths with one of our signature cocktails. Enjoy the rich draped velvet, ornate mirrors, pressed metal bar and impeccable attention to detail that this room has on offer.

Then hit your private dance floor to really celebrate!

The club holds a 24/7 licence which allows partying from dusk till down. This makes Circus an obvious choice for those who like to celebrate in style.
