If you’re looking to tie one on in Melbourne for New Year’s Eve then you’re going to want to get across the city’s best NYE events. It’s no secret that the city has been through the wringer this year, so some of Melbourne’s best venues are gearing up to welcome anyone keen to see 2021 off with fine food, even better Champagne, and a great deal of live entertainment before midnight fireworks hit.

We’ve rounded up 5 of what we think will be the best New Year’s Events in Melbourne, with tickets to some as low as $50 so there’s no excuse to not get out there and roll into the New Year doing what you do best.

The Best New Year’s Eve Events In Melbourne


Stokehouse is clearly making up for a terrible year in Melbourne by going all out for their New Year’s Eve party. You pay $350pp, and in return, you’ll get magnums of Champagne, caviar bumps, and 4 courses of freshly caught seafood dishes to help send off 2021 in style. There are some cheaper packages of course, like the $250pp 5-courser with oysters and caviar, or the $130pp 4-course menu if you want to just pop by early and go party somewhere else later in the night.

Tickets: From $130pp

Ponyfish Island

Each year Ponyfish Island is one of the more high-energy places to stomp around come New Year’s Eve. The floating bar in the middle of the Yarra will be teeing up an all-inclusive 4-hour package of free pour wine and beer, plus simple pizza and a few pops of live entertainment.

Tickets: $180pp

Bar Margaux

If stuffing yourself silly with exceptional French food is your idea of a New Year’s Eve party, then head on down to Bar Margaux. The subterranean space will be flowing with 2 different menus. If you just want some canapes and a glass of Champagne then you’re only looking at $50 to head on down, but if you want something a bit more substantial – think a four-course meal and a glass of bubbles – then you’re parting with $130pp.

Tickets: From $50pp

The Everleigh

One of the best bars in Melbourne, The Everleigh, will be giving 2021 the flick with an old-fashioned black & white masquerade ball, based on Truman Capote’s lavish parties. Other than that, you’re only looking at various snacks throughout the evening, some Champagne for the midnight fireworks, and 4 different cocktails throughout the night.

Tickets: $125pp

Hope St Radio

Collingwood Yards’ on-site wine bar, also renowned for their live community radio broadcasts, will be opening their doors on NYE for what they’re calling the “New Year, New Shit Me” party. There’s not much to it except for a boat-load of Champagne, oysters, and – this could be dangerous – a mechanical bull. Don’t be the bloke who gets injured and you’ll have a cracking night.

Tickets: $68pp
