Bar & Café

The Boatbuilders Yard is a waterfront bar and café located in South Wharf that brings a new style of relaxed and informal European-style eating and drinking to Melbourne.

We've got a huge beer garden conveniently located next to Polly Woodside and the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. The Boatbuilders Yard is positioned at the top of the South Wharf Promenade 10 minutes from Melbourne's CBD.

The venue has spectacular views of the city and excellent function spaces perfect for:

  • Corporate functions
  • Christmas parties
  • Birthday parties
  • Engagement parties
  • Product launches 
  • Wedding receptions

Play Bocce or sit in a deck chair with an ice cold drink. We're all about relaxing and taking it easy!

The Boatbuilders Yard is open 7 days a week from 7am Monday to Thursday and 8am Saturday and Sunday until late.

Bookings are not necessary as we have seating for over 500 people. However, a limited number of reservations are taken weekdays prior to 4pm. Call 9686 5088 - bookings are not taken via email.

Sorry, no table bookings on the Weekend, on Public Holidays or during December.
