Built in 1880, the Meat Market is a grade one heritage-listed building with enormous character and history.
Meat Market offers a variety of versatile spaces and the hottest creative events in Melbourne. Located just north of Melbourne CBD, we're a hub for arts, performances, exhibitions, festivals, markets and fairs.
Our spaces frequently accommodate theatre companies, artists, performers, artisan producers and creative practitioners with regular events scheduled throughout the year. With a collection of flexible spaces for hire, including our Flat Floor Pavilion, Cobblestone Pavilion, Stables, Meeting Room, Garden and Old Cafe, we're able to cater to events of all sizes. From intimate art exhibitions to impressive aerial performances.
The two large pavilions can accommodate a variety of occasions, from intimate, technically simple performances and rehearsals to complex, large-scale productions.
The main pavilions are suitable for dance, music, physical theatre, multimedia, spoken word, choir, chamber music, circus, corporate functions, large scale events and public meetings.
The meeting room is a carpeted space with projection equipment available for use. The meeting room is suitable for auditions, rehearsals, workshops, seminars and meetings.

Attached to the Flat Floor side of the Main Pavilion, the Old Cafe is suitable as a production office, dressing room, warm-up space or costume store. As a stand-alone space it is suitable for small meetings and rehearsals.
