The iconic Prince Alfred Hotel has been a hub of Carlton life since 1926, and after a short closure and an impressive facelift, the 450-person space is back with an incredible rooftop bar and terrace as the cherry on top.
No longer a rough and ready pub for students, the Prince Alfred Hotel has been rejuvenated with a quirky interior inspired by British Royalty combined with an array of floral and botanical elements. It’s elegant, fun and the place to go when you want to feel like royalty on a pauper’s budget.
The menu features all of your favourite pub classics, plus the best canape selection in Carlton. The onsite functions team are experts in creating the perfect event for you; whether you are looking for casual birthday drinks, corporate team-building events or even a show-stopping, rooftop wedding.
