Add to Compare

The Deck is a newly renovated cafe, restaurant and function venue nestled in the streets of sunny, beachside, and cosmopolitan Brighton. During the day it’s primarily a cafe, providing an afternoon pit stop, brunch date, or family breakfast location.

The Deck offers a “paleo” menu, one of the first of its kind in Melbourne. For those not up-to-date with the diet du jour, paleo dishes are devoid of gluten, grains, wheat, dairy, and refined sugar. Take note: it’s way, WAY tastier than it sounds. Or you could get a burger, either is fine.

As a function space, the Deck boasts a number of options and combinations; it’s a venue that lends itself to nigh on any conceivable event under the sun. There’s the front bar space, for cocktail parties. Then there’s the al fresco deck space, for enjoying warm summer breezes with a few friends and a beer. Lastly, there’s the sprawling and adaptable Aviary function space. No mere “plain room for any function”, the Aviary combines versatility with effortless style and striking features.

The Deck is found on Bay Street, in Brighton. While it’s obviously a favourite amongst locals, The Deck is also conveniently placed for friends and family travelling from further corners of Melbourne. North Brighton train station is just down the road, and is only about twenty-five minutes’ drive from the city.

If you're looking for a place for a function then do not look any further. The Deck Brighton was just amazing! First of all the staff, absolutely fantastic, Jason was great and ran the night perfectly. Secondly, the venue is amazing not too big or small, the ambience and decor really set the mood! And last but not least, the food; the finger food platters were great, the amount of food was generous also. We had Pulled Pork Sliders, Bruschetta, arancini, haloumi fritters, honey soy chicken and the meatballs! All of them were great and met with many compliments through the night! So all in all an amazing place to have a function!

We had my 40th birthday Saturday night and The Deck was perfect. We had the back room and Justin and his staff were amazing. So approachable and attention to detail was spot on. Justin was so organised and relaxed, which also helped me to feel relaxed. Caitlin helped us organise the function and was very professional, and helpful in making our function run smoothly. The back room was a great space as we had a guitarist and DJ music, and all our guest danced the night away. The complementary breakfast was a lovely touch the next day and I can't fault The Deck in anyway, start to finish was amazing. Thank you for making my night so special.

My fiancé and I had our engagement party here last night. It was a perfect night, made even more perfect by the service we were provided. Everyone that worked on the night were amazing, they were onto everything before we even thought about it. Highly highly reccomend for a stress free event.

Additionally, the venue itself is beautiful and perfect for Melbourne weather as it provides an exceptional fully enclosed outdoor area.

We loved it!! Thanks so much guys, you really were the cherry on top of a wonderful night!!
