Nini’s loves to host functions of all shapes and sizes.

Our Hawthorn events team work with you to bring your function to life in both private and semi-private dining spaces.

The team has a long history of hosting iconic events that leave guests always wanting more, we are into unforgettable events. However, unforgettable doesn’t have to mean lavish and over the top. To us, unforgettable is great food, impeccable service and a good vibe, the rest is left to you!


Located only 9km from the CBD, Nini’s iconic rooftop terrace in Hawthorn is in the heart of Melbourne showcasing all that the city has to offer.

From Birthdays to corporate events our rooftop has hosted it all and the floorboards have many stories to tell. We are perfectly suited to host birthdays, engagements, weddings, receptions, corporate events and parties.

The indoor/outdoor space can be altered to suit any group, event or budget with many packages and options available.


We work with you to create an experience to your individual needs, offering a tailored approach to event management and venue operation.

Mixing that classical Melbourne vibe with aged industrial timbers on the terrace, whimsical rooftop garden and a blank canvas inside the space can be truly transformed to suit your events look and feel.

Mix materials, colours and soft furnishing to create an oasis away from the daily hustle and bustle. Sip on a drop from our locally and internationally sourced wine list, or escape with a tangy cocktail made to your liking.

    Perfect temperature on a lovely evening. It was our third time going to Nini’s and it’s stunning. Gorgeous views and delicious meals / the saganaki and the filo wrapped feta were delicious

  • Visited a couple of weeks ago on a really cold night at the end of June. Restaurant felt like it didn't have heating on and door was open to outdoor dining area. We both had jackets on but still felt really cold. Food was good but wasn't as enjoyable due to the temperature
