retRo is an offbeat, fun and refreshingly nostalgic café situated at 413 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. In the heart of Melbourne's coffee culture, serving restaurant style meals in a cafe environment...
Our Upstairs Grand Dining Room is a wonderful old ex-factory room, ever changing for both the corporate or private sector. We have a banquet table capable of seating 40 to 70 guests and up to 100 guests can be accommodated on an assortment of smaller tables.
As a cocktail, exhibition or performance area, the room can hold up to 200 guests. At retRo we like to play with freshness, flavours, style, colour and simplicity to create an individual professional package. We are equally at home creating functions for weddings, birthdays, conferences, corporate breakfasts, exhibitions, community dinners, theatre performances or fashion launches. With a high ceiling, solid wood flooring and original red brick walls, the room is best highlighted with both free standing and table candelabras, which when lit, reflect back in the large old windows. In the past, we have had wonderful functions using vibrantly coloured linen, gold, silver or glass urns filled with decorative fruits and of course, our lovely candelabras.
If you would like to look over the room, please pop in and ask one of our friendly waiting staff. If you would prefer a consultation where we can fully discuss your specific requirements, please call a functions coordinator on 9419 1299 to make an appointment. Open from 7am until late 7 days.
