Find the perfect venue for your event

An Albert Park fixture for over five years now, Lord Cardigan is a bright, light-filled and sophisticated spot to breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Within the restaurant-filled leafy suburb, Lord Cardigan stands out as being a particularly stylish and delicious place to fill one’s belly. 

Of course, apart from being an elegant establishment, it’s obvious Lord Cardigan has a sense of fun about itself. How could you not, being named after a “vain” and “notorious rake” who led his brigade to a stunning defeat, whose preferred woollen attire now covers the torsos of hipsters everywhere.

Hilarious namesake aside, Lord Cardigan really is an Albert Park favourite for a reason. Namely, that’s thanks to the husband and wife team’s commitment to high quality Australian/Euro cuisine, and affable, warm service. Chef (and husband) John Singer is dedicated to delivering dishes that “remain in the memory and linger on the tastebuds”, while on the floor Dominique Bolger greets and laughs with customers.

As a function venue, Lord Cardigan is a versatile and lovely space. Corporate events, weddings, event dinners, birthdays and business lunches are all easily housed within Lord Cardigan’s walls. Besides that, the restaurant regularly holds degustation nights, for an evening out that’s a little unique.

Lord Cardigan sits on Cardigan Place in Albert Park, near where Bridport Street becomes Victoria Avenue. So it’s right in the cafe/shopping action of that particular picturesque neighbourhood. To get there from the city, just catch the 1 tram along Swanston Street and it’ll take you just about to the door.

A very smart and stylish Albert Park stalwart, Lord Cardigan is both sophisticated and sufficiently casual.

Glass fronted and overall light and airy, this one-roomed venue sports a neutral colour scheme brought to life by a fleur-de-lis patterned feature wall and a host of darkwood furniture. Rather homely, yet altogether chic.

An attractive terraced area can be found out front, comfortably appointed and completed with plenty of hanging baskets and potted plants.

In its entirety, Lord Cardigan can be exclusively hired to host events for up to 42 seated diners, or cocktail parties for up to 60 guests.

The venue is well-versed in function handling, with experience in hosting small weddings and corporate events, as well as birthday and anniversary celebrations.

A number of function menus are available for selection and, for cocktail events, grazing dishes, canapes and even celebration cakes can be arranged with ease.

Please note: this venue is, unfortunately, not suitable for 18th birthday celebrations.
