Unique to Melbourne’s Southbank precinct, Left Bank offers a diversity of choice and a thoughtful and fresh approach to planning your next function or event.
This venue can accommodate cocktail style events of up to 584 guests and The Terrace on the Southbank promenade accommodates up to 140 guests for ‘sit down’ events.
Left Bank Melbourne takes pride in facilitating bespoke functions and events of all sizes. This venue houses multiple spaces that can be used separately or modulated to accommodate larger groups.
Left Bank Melbourne is located on the riverside of No.1 Southbank Boulevard, Southbank. The entrance to the venue is on the ground level toward the Yarra River and just next to Queensbridge Square.
BY CAR – There are plenty of secure parking lots around, but we recommend the Wilson’s Secure Car Park on Riverside Quay which is conveniently located directly behind us at No. 1 South Bank Blvd.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT/TAXI – Left Bank Melbourne is easy walking distance from both Flinders Street and Southern Cross Train Stations as well as several tram lines. 1. From Flinders St, cross one of the bridges (either Princess Bridge, Evan Walker Bridge or Sandridge Bridge) over the river and we are adjacent to Queensbridge Square. If coming by taxi or Uber, we suggest getting dropped at the corner of Southbank Boulevard and Riverside Quay. City Road is the main arterial feeding Southbank from most suburbs.
BIKE – Left Bank is situated on one of the busiest bicycle routes that links the eastern suburbs to the west. There is ample bike parking and bike share facilities adjacent.
