Head upstairs to the first floor where you’ll find the White Room and Den. These rooms are available as separate spaces or in their entirety for larger events. We can help you host your cocktail party, corporate or private dining event.
Aviary Hotel offers a relaxed approach to dining encouraging guests to enjoy their meal where they feel most comfortable, be it at your favourite table or perched at the bar looking out on Victoria Street.
Chef Craig (far right), previously head chef at The Gem, recently took over our kitchen. Craig has a close rapport with suppliers and sources most of our produce locally. He digs unpretentious pub food done with his unique spin on it and his trademark is the smoked bbq so expect to see some house smoked delicacies on the menu soon.
Siobhan (far left) not only kills everyone on the golf course and in netball, she brings her skills and cheeky energy to the dining room and special events.
Charlie (always centre) is our resident smart arse but he gets away with it because he is an absolute gun. You’ll find him spreading the love with his wicked humour in both the dining room and behind the bar. Hit him up for an original cocktail.
Leading up to Australia Day we’re celebrating all weekend long kicking off with our ever popular Friday & Saturday Happy Hour. DJs keep the party cranking every day including Sunday Soul Sessions hosted by King 7 before DJ Snufbox brings in your holiday.
Tune in to Triple J’s Hottest 100 on Monday while we host our first BBQ in the Beer Garden. Chef’s offering a sensational mixed grill plate with all the Aussie classics. Drinks specials include $18 cocktail jugs and jugs of Boag’s Draught for just $14.
Monday Night Burgers are back. After a hard day back at work, relax and let us spoil you with one of our delicious burgers. Choose between our infamous Aviary beef burger with bacon jam or the new favourite southern fried chicken with slaw, jalapeño & sriracha mayo. Wash it all down with a pot of Boags Draught for just $12. Yep 12 bucks.
Sundays just got better with succulent roast chicken cooked over our hot coal rotisserie in the Beer Garden. Enjoy a traditional plate dressed with all the trimmings or with slaw in a roll for those a little more liberated from cutlery. Sunday Soul Sessions in swing from 4pm with our main men Mr. Vince Peach and Melbourne’s own King, Garry Seven spinning soul, motown and funk.
