Plus 5

Plus 5 is the venue of warmth and classic hospitality with the spaces to match.

Pizza, Tapas and Cocktails are the focus here and they’re executed with care and passion. The three key spaces available offer a setting for every dining event. For completely private dinners, The Counting House is for you, originally utilised by the dock-men to count their haul, this private room offers space for up to 10 seated guests.

For city skyline views the outdoor terrace is the space for your private dining experience, with the area enclosed by blinds during the colder months or with misters on during the warmer ones the terrace is great to experience all that Melbourne has to offer under the night sky. With capacity for 30 seated guests. If it’s a large dinner affair the main dining area or the whole venue can be utilized for your exclusive use, available for up to 60 seated guests.

Meat Market Riverside Terrace

The benefit of Meat Markets floorplan is its ability to be divided amongst diners to create private areas. The central open air kitchen offers a balance between areas with all guests getting to enjoy the atmosphere of live cooking. A patio area that serves the Dukes Walk side of the venue offers guests a Parisian feeling under striped canopies, great for small groups looking for an outdoor setting.

The internal restaurant spaces sit on either side of the kitchen and may be utilised for engaging dining events for up to 60 seated guests respectively.

While the riverside glass conservatory is the tried and true favourite of private dining organizers. The conservatory offers unimpeded city and water views with the brilliant afternoon sun warming the space ever so slightly, with seating for up to 60 guests.

Meat Markets menu items are (as the name suggests) favourites of those looking for rich and hearty meals, executed in a way that doesn’t leave the guest feeling overdone.


Akachochin is the private dining choice for those looking for an immersive Japanese food experience.

Akachochin offers its private dining experiences in three distinct spaces, from the riverside terrace, the main restaurant or the Dukes Walk terrace. The exterior areas are fantastic for small parties between 20 and 30 looking for dedicated service amongst the red paper lanterns (the literal ‘akachochin’). While the restaurant itself offers a purpose built dining area, with the bar and sashimi station running the length of the venues. Perfect for large groups wanting a fully encompassing dining experience from Sake pairings to Sashimi preparation. The main area can cater up to 60 seated.

The benefit of a private dining event at Akachochin is the full attention of the experienced wait and bar staff in a quiet and respectful venue, learning while you enjoy classic Japanese cuisine.
