your engagement

at epocha

Engagement parties are a special and personal moment where you gather your family and friends together to celebrate your life partner, before taking the final step on your wedding day. This is why finding the perfect engagement party venue is important.

Epocha is a European restaurant and quintessential functions venue located in the heart of Melbourne. As the city’s favourite, one of our most iconic features is our unique view overlooking Carlton Gardens and the Royal Exhibition Building. Our function venue has three unique spaces suited for both seated events and cocktail parties – all specifically designed to hold a particular capacity.

However, we cater for all sizes of events from intimate engagement parties to extravagant celebrations. Despite our three exclusive engagement venues, you also have the option to hire out our entire function venue for exclusive use.

Here, you have the option to wow your guests with champagne and canapés to start off the event upstairs with a scenic view of Melbourne’s Carlton Gardens. You can then move downstairs to enjoy our range of decadent wine and fine European cuisine options, or continue with whatever surprises you have planned for the celebration of your engagement.
