About the function space

Right in the middle of South Melbourne, this diner, bar and function venue will make you feel like you've stepped into an old BBQ in Texas, Memphis or Tennessee. Exposed brickwork and timber floor all packed into an impressive jet black double story terrace.

Enjoy the bar area for pre-drinks and head through to the lush green patio for alfresco eats and drinks as the party gets underway. It's a New Orleans-inspired alfresco wonderland with wall-to-wall greenery and two rows of long timber tables which can be rearranged to suit your needs. There is heating in winter making it perfect all year 'round. When combined with the front bar area you can have this whole venue to yourself and celebrate in style.

With specialties including American style smoked BBQ ribs, 16 hour smoked brisket, slow cooked pulled pork, burgers, sliders, chicken, mac 'n cheese and epic fresh salads, your guests will not go hungry. Not to mention the famous yankee-style desserts.

There is out-front bar seating for smokers to congregate, have a beer and still be part of the fun.

A tram stop is right outside and for drivers there is lots of free parking in the evenings and all weekend.
