About the function space

How many prime CBD locations grant you a spacious courtyard to celebrate your special event? Not to mention plenty of indoor space, and your own bar and music.

Mr. Tod is a fantastic basement event space in the most prestigious part of inner Melbourne. It is housed alongside the National Trust in a beautifully renovated building constructed in 1878 and once used as residential terraces.

The space retains all of the acclaimed heritage significance of the building while adding contemporary facilities and decor. Lots of wood, glass and exposed brick make for a rustic yet stylish place for a party.

The bar has plenty of space around it for mingling and dancing, and then leads through to the adjacent courtyard, which provides a unique alfresco oasis in the heart of Melbourne.

Play your tunes, mingle inside, head outside for some moonlight celebration, and enjoy our delicious function food made fresh in the venue. All the ingredients of a successful function.
