Lose yourself in the grandeur of the Meat Market, the perfect event venue for lovers of history, culture and art. The Meat Market’s cultural significance is crystallised by the fact that it is a grade one heritage-listed building, and has stood tall since 1880.

As the name suggests, the building was once a commercial meat market, with the cobbled floor and barrel vault ceiling remaining intact to pay homage to this history. In 1977, the building was revived from its derelict state by the Hamer Government and operated as the Meat Market Craft and Events Centre. It was then closed in 2001 for redevelopment and now exists in its current incarnation as the Meat Market, an innovative, multi-genre arts and event space.

Today, this North Melbourne icon is used for performances, events, conferences, filming and rehearsals.
