About the event

Food & Drink

Canapés will be provided throughout the night. A bar tab will also be in place.

If you have any dietary requirements please let us know in your RSVP so we can ensure you're catered for.

Dress Code

While we'll be inside, June in Melbourne can be chilly - so we recommend you rug up. There is no set dress code, but we'll be in smart casual. Jeans is fine!


The Espy is a busy venue on Saturday nights. Children are more than welcome in our private space, but due to liquor licencing must leave after the last restaurant closes (approximately 9:30pm). If you are bringing your children, please let us know in the comments section of the RSVP form.


We are really happy to have people joining us to celebrate. Gifts are not required - we're just happy to be able to celebrate with our friends and family.

About the Pharmacy Room

Alfred Felton was an entrepreneur, chemist, philanthropist and collector of art, and was once a resident of the Espy. Upstairs at The Ghost Of Alfred Felton you’ll find the Pharmacy Room, which reflect parts of Alfred’s life, all wonderfully styled with antiques found all around the world. 

About the Espy

144 years ago a local politician purchases a plot of land & the building of Hotel Esplanade commenced. One year later, the hotel opens its doors -making it the most luxurious hotel in Melbourne.

Over the next 90yrs the hotel welcomed famous faces, (including Mark Twain & Alfred Felton), hosted fancy soirées, added a ballroom (which is now the Gershwin Room), endured a World War & adapted to many cultural changes along the way.

The 1970s’ brought the era of punk, rock ‘n’ roll & the start of The Espy’s 40yr survival story with threats for casinos, apartments & demolition all put forward but battled by the local community. 

2015 saw the venue close its doors for a planned renovation – dragging out longer than expected & with a change of hands & lots of hard work The Hotel re-opened its doors again in 2018 & welcomed back its local loyal neighbours & introduced itself to many new fans.
