Every event at Gingerboy has a menu designed by Teage. Meaning, if you want the biggest hits from the restaurant menu, you can have them; if you want customised canapes, you can have them. What we won’t give you – promise - is cookie-cutter function food that doesn’t measure up to the Gingerboy standards.

Because we know that no two events are alike and you’ll have a bunch of FAQs ready to fire at us, we have a team of experienced party planners ready and waiting to answer them. Our team will work with you throughout the entire booking process to ensure your personal preferences are accommodated, everything runs smoothly and no detail is overlooked.

Banquets at Gingerboy

We offer large parties a curated banquet menu, personally designed by Teage, of snacks, share plates, sides and desserts. In other words, we take the greatest hits from Gingerboy’s seasonal menu, add in some of our soon-to-be-classics, and plate it up to your specifications. We’ll always do our best to accommodate dietary requirements and allergies, just let us know as early as you can.

Cocktail parties at Gingerboy

Our upstanding, outstanding cocktail parties are held in the lounge overlooking the very Melbourne Crossley Street laneway. We can curate a selection of our street snacks, short eats and hawker menu hero dishes, or we can do a bespoke canape menu to suit your tastes and dietary requirements.


Gingerboy has high energy function spaces available for parties of all sizes – big, small and in-between. 

CELLAR TABLES – 20 guests 

The Cellar Tables can accommodate up to 20, and the two grand bamboo benches can be re-jigged to suit your party’s needs. The space can be made semi-private with a suggestive sheer curtain or, if you’d prefer to bask in the buzz, the curtain can be thrown open to rest of Upstairs. 


For groups of 8-10 looking for a more relaxed event, our high-topped tables in the Crossley Street Lounge are perfect. Soak in the vibe of the bar while tucked away in the lounge nook. Your group will be seated together across high bamboo tables with views overlooking the laneway. This setup works best for cocktail events, with dedicated menus and packages. 


Get the run of the place, with exclusive use of the entire Upstairs space. Your party will be seated across the Crossley Lounge and Cellar Table areas. We can accommodate up to 30 for an Upstairs sit-down dinner; plus, use of the bar seating can also be made available for larger groups on request. Laid back cocktail events are also welcome, with dedicated menus and drinks packages. 


Gingerboy’s dining room can be reserved in its entirety (up to 60 people) for corporate lunches, weddings, birthdays or anything else you’d like to celebrate. That’s right, for an unrivalled event, you can claim exclusive use of one the jewels in Melbourne’s culinary crown.

THE Boardroom (EXCLUSIVE USE) – 24 guests (new!) 

The Boardroom is our newest addition to the event spaces at Gingerboy. Perched on the top floor overlooking Crossley Street, The Boardroom is a large private room with industrial-style windows, a long table and a high ceiling, offering endless possibilities for all private and corporate events of up to 24 people. Optional fittings and decorations are available and you’re welcome to use the inbuilt AV and sound system to create whatever ambience you’re looking for.
