The iconic National Hotel, located on Richmond’s bustling Victoria Street, is a place for locals and far-flung travellers to come together in a community minded space, where the staff are always proud to serve and the atmosphere is heady with good vibes.
The National Hotel is the perfect place to celebrate an anniversary, birthday or special occasion.
Our venue offers four individual spaces, theGarden Parlour, the Café, the Den, and an open-air courtyard. Each room is unique in its offerings and can be tailored to suit the size and nature of your event.
The National Hotel can accommodate any affair, from an intimate corporate lunch to a lavish cocktail party for 150 guests.
Whatever your requirements may be, we customise each event to ensure it’s a reflection of your specific needs. Our approach is always flexible and we can shape floorplans and spaces as required. We are more than happy to discuss your vision with you!

Our Garden Parlour is a space you can make entirely your own. Its contemporary design and private bar are just a few of the elements your guests will love. Faint murmurs from the bustling next door beer garden set the scene with large, glass sliding doors that can be opened up or closed to the elements. We also have your entertainment needs covered with our TV and microphone. The Garden Parlour’s flexible furniture arrangement make it perfect for any style of event. For functions in the Garden Parlour with guest lists over 80, we also allocate a portion of the western side of the beer garden and turn the function area into an L-shape.

The café space is a luxe, intimate room with concrete brick walls, a long parquetry table and huge street facing windows. It also features private access to the main bar and a warming fireplace perfect for winter functions. This room is ideal for private dinners, intimate cocktail parties, presentations and group meetings.
|Board Room||16 people|
The National’s Den space is pretty much just that – a little den tucked away just past the booths and the front bar. This semi-private dining area features a fireplace and exposed brick walls. There’s room to hang out, and it’s private enough for groups while still being part of the action in the main bar.
|Board Room||10 people|
The beer garden is perfect for all group bookings. Large tables line the timber deck, and the scene is set with hanging lamps in amber glass bottles bolstered across the courtyard, providing a twist on the Chinese lantern. Winter phobics need not fear, the multi-seasonal courtyard has an undercover area with heating, plus a ping-pong table and view of the night sky for the summer months. Canapés and a la carté is available, with easy access to the main bar.
