The Commons Collective

Ormond Hall, Eastern Bar & Eastern Bar Courtyard

Nearest station:Richmond (2.8 km)(go to map)400

The Commons Collective is only a stone's throw away from Melbourne's CBD and walking distance from Albert Park. The Commons Collective boasts of its central location sitting within the St Kilda Road Business District. The Commons Collective is a complimentary contradiction; historic and chic, frivolous and formal – full of distinctive character and able to transform into whatever event you desire – hence it is not easily forgotten by those who have experienced its magic.

The Commons Collective has a variety of 8 spaces to suit any and every celebration. The venue also gives you access to Melbourne’s most sought after event stylists.

With history dating back to the 1890s, refurbished in the 1920s and more recently in 2017, the original Art Deco decor has been flawlessly preserved, capturing the vibe of a refined nostalgia. The heritage listed stage and space of Ormond Hall is popular for large events of all types including spectacular shows, corporate award nights, extravagant weddings and more.

Ormond Hall is a heritage listed dance hall and theatre with a warm and inviting aesthetic. Originally refurbished in the 1920s, the Art Deco period finishes from this era have been retained, creating a neutral yet nostalgic space with polished timber floors, lead glass windows, ornate iron balustrades, faceted milk glass pendants and rich ochre stage curtains.

Nestled within Ormond Hall is the most stylish blank canvas you’ll ever find, The Eastern Bar and Eastern Bar Courtyard. Cocktails and canapés have never tasted so good in this surprisingly minimal pre-event entry or stand-alone event space. With the help of the in-house stylists, you too can create the celebration of your dreams.

The Ormond Hall can fit up to 200 guests in banquet style, 300 guests in theatre style, 300 guests in cocktail style and 160 in cabaret style. The Eastern Bar & Eastern Bar Courtyard can fit up to 48 guests in banquet style and 100 guests standing.
