Located a stone’s throw from some of Melbourne’s most famous culinary landmarks, in a state famous for its wineries, breweries and local producers, CENTREPIECE is dedicated to presenting the best food and beverage experiences Victoria has to offer.
Inspired by multicultural Melbourne’s melting pot of flavours, our dedicated team of culinary experts takes pride in showcasing local ingredients with a menu that caters to everyone’s needs.
From multi-course meals to evening cocktails on the terrace, there are countless opportunities to add a taste of Melbourne’s famous foodie culture to your event.
CENTREPIECE’s paddock-to-plate philosophy is as much about sourcing the best and freshest ingredients as it is about supporting local growers and producers.

An on-site kitchen garden, bakery and butchery allow our experienced culinary experts to create a variety of house-made specialties, adding a bespoke flavour to a menu inspired by the best seasonal produce available.
Our beverage menu also boasts a wide range of Victorian-produced choices, including locally brewed craft beer varieties, acclaimed Victorian wines, Melbourne’s famous small-batch spirits and, of course, quintessentially-Melbourne espresso coffee.
Supply partners include Victorian owned and operated businesses such as St David’s Dairy, Moon Dog Craft Brewery, Capi Soft Drinks, Mitchelton Wines and Industry Beans.

The team at CENTREPIECE knows that venue presentation and cleanliness is key to the success of your event and the enjoyment of your guests.

Our cleaning partner, CIRKA, has serviced some of Melbourne’s largest venues and facilities for over 30 years, and with the support of the venue team will ensure that your event is perfectly presented every time.
During the pandemic, live events have been one of the things people have missed most.
They bring people together to share experiences and create memories.
However, bringing people together during a pandemic requires careful planning and extra precautions.
CENTREPIECE is committed to working with our clients to deliver world-class events that are safe and inclusive, and which provide peace of mind to event organisers working in this challenging environment.
That’s why all CENTREPIECE events comply with our approved COVIDSafe Plan for the venue.
This plan was developed under the Victorian Government’s COVID-19 Public Events Framework and ensures we have effective, appropriate and scalable measures in place to protect our clients and their guests.
As Victoria opens up, events will be a critical part of the recovery.
Not only are they a key economic driver, but more importantly they help facilitate the connections that are vital for a healthy and happy community.
With our ongoing commitment to COVIDSafe events at CENTREPIECE, you can confidently play your part in bringing people back together safely.
The safety of our guests, team and clients is our priority.
