Crowne Plaza Melbourne Events & Parties

Be it a milestone celebration or just a random Friday; any excuse will do to host your next social event at Pearl Riverfront. Attached to the award-winning Crowne Plaza, Pearl Riverfront boasts Yarra River frontage and views of the Melbourne city skyline.

Refurbished in January 2021, Pearl Riverfront is one of Melbourne’s premier events destinations, featuring plenty of natural light, modern furnishings, and pleasing colour schemes.

A specially-designed venue, Pearl Riverfront boasts ten flexible events spaces that can cater for intimate parties or all-out extravaganzas. Your dream event is limited only by your imagination; if you’re envisioning helicopter flybys, arrival by gondola, on river projection, and celebratory fireworks, then you’ve come to the right place.

Dive Bar, Pearl Riverfront’s newest events space, is available for private events upon request. Dive Bar combines a New York dive bar aesthetic with Crowne Plaza’s signature high-end style. Dive Bar is the perfect spot for a private dinner, hen’s do, or glitzy engagement party. Your guests will love the extensive drinks list and guest-controlled jukebox.

A dedicated Events Manager is with you from the moment you book your dates. From your initial meeting, you’ll be able to discuss your exact needs, be that unique decor, additional vendors, any religious or cultural requirements, and whether or not you’ll need the venue’s state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment. Having built a reputation for excellence through Crowne Plaza, the Pearl Riverfront events team go the extra mile for their social events.

For meals, your guests will enjoy the very best modern cuisine. Using sustainable produce sourced from Australian farms and oceans, the culinary team specialise in visually stunning meals that taste as good as they look.
