Situated in the heart of Melbourne’s arts precinct, Persimmon transforms from a highly regarded lunch restaurant by day to a contemporary venue for breakfasts, dinners, cocktail functions and weddings.
Overlooking the magnificent Grollo Equiset Garden, home to some of the Gallery’s most impressive sculptures, Persimmon is framed by a backdrop of the city skyline, creating an artistic and stylish setting. A private entry features a boardwalk from the gate to Persimmon’s entrance and the balcony and gardens provide the perfect location for ceremonies, formalities or pre-dinner drinks.
For evening events, lighting design is available that complements the garden’s collection of art works to add atmosphere to the outdoor area.
