Southgate is located at the gateway to Melbourne’s arts precinct and is within easy walking distance to venues such as Hamer Hall, Arts Centre Melbourne (including the State Theatre, Playhouse and Fairfax Studio), NGV International, MTC Southbank Theatre, Melbourne Recital Centre, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art and Malthouse Theatre.
Our restaurants pride themselves on providing exceptional pre-theatre service for patrons, with plenty of time to arrive at the theatre to find your seats. For a more casual dining option, Southgate’s licensed riverside Food Court is also open late seven days a week.
Southgate’s undercover Car Park is open 24 hours and provides a low flat-rate for weeknight parking after 4pm, and on weekends and public holidays, ideal for patrons attending arts events and exhibitions.
