About the function space

This secret gem is nestled in the graffiti-tagged back streets of Fitzroy. It combines haunting old-world European charm, with a great urban feel. Decked out with fabulous artwork, unique hanging tulip lights and lots of foliage, Absinthia is an excellent choice for your next celebration.

In addition to housing a very extensive collection of traditionally made absinthe, Absinthia can provide specialised drink packages to suit the individual tastes of your group. They can also provide delicious canapes or beautifully decorated grazing tables (house made treats created next door), to compliment your drinking experience.

Or to meet a tight budget, you may choose to BYO food and even heat it up onsite.

In addition to the main bar area, there is an elegant conservatory style courtyard, where guests can retreat to chill out, and/or to enjoy a range of hand-rolled cigars.

The Absinthia team have hosted and coordinated everything from birthdays and murder mystery parties, to corporate events. Let them help with yours!
