Beyond butcher and diner, a grand staircase leads to this beautiful first floor room reminiscent of the well heeled,
leafy district of Buenos Aires, Recoleta. A part of town showcasing its diverse European past in sweeping classical
architecture, elegant mansions and some of the country’s most treasured cultural icons.
Well worn, weathered timber floors, faded murals and ornate stained glass open out to a secluded terrace offering
glimpses of Parliament and the top end of Bourke Street.
Celebrating excellent, simple cooking in warm, inviting surroundings, this is a room to come together in, to gather
for an impressive party, or to mark your next important milestone.

Hello Sara, Thank you SO much for all that you and the team did to bring our Celebratory Dinner to life this week! ?? We know that Recoleta is a gorgeous venue, but the simply wonderful service and the food you provide makes the whole experience almost magical. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with one guest (who attends many events) saying it was one of the best events she has ever attended! Once we have our edited images back, we'll send some to you. Thanks again.
Sara, Jess and Miguel, with his lovely staff, made the event a success. The Tax Bar Association looks forward to making it a fixture in the annual calendar.

I had the most amazing night, the whole experience was perfect and I wouldn't have changed anything. All the staff were lovely and the service was exceptional. The food was beautiful and all the guests were left extremely satisfied. I would like to give a special mention to the delicious Margaritas, they were perfect!

Hi Jess, Jamie and I just wanted to say a big big Thankyou to you and your staff! It was the most perfect night and everything looked beautiful. we could have not wished for anything more it was just what we had imagined our day to be like. Everyone raved about the food and the wine. A special Thankyou to the head waiter who went out of his way to make sure the music worked when the system over heated! Of course, so happy for that to happen once the photographer sends through some photos we will pick a few nice ones for you to share. Thankyou for making everything so easy!

I had an amazing celebration - the food, the venue and the attentiveness of the staff on the night were outstanding! i dont think a single glass was ever empty... they truly were outstanding. Thank you again - I'm very appreciative of everyone helping me celebrate my 40th!
Hi Sara, The event was splendid and everything went very smoothly. Miguel and the team provided excellent service and the food was delicious. We will recommend Recoleta and Spring Street events to family and friends. Thanks to yourself and Jess for all your help in the lead up.

Thank you for all your assistance throughout, nothing was ever too hard for you, and we really appreciate all your help with coordinating our event. 😊
Hi Jess Thank you so much for my lovely little gift on Monday evening. I am saving it to enjoy back home over the weekend, we depart Melbourne today. It was a successful week of conferencing complimented with delicious dinners each evening. All the staff were amazing, very attentive and professional and nice to see familiar faces over the 3 nights. Our group really enjoyed each venue, they all had their quirks and intimate surrounds – I think my favourite was The Tea Room, closely followed by French Saloon and Recoleta. Thank you again and I will definitely be in contact when we are next in Melbourne to organise some more dinners! Enjoy the rest of your week.
Hi Jess, I just wanted to let you know we were thrilled with Recoleta on Friday night. The atmosphere was perfect and the food was incredible. The cake was divine- I couldn't get over how beautiful it was, and it tasted absolutely delicious. The stars of the night were definitely your staff. They were incredibly attentive, so friendly and warm, and so on the ball. Incredibly impressive. Amanda, particularly, had everything under control. She followed up the outdating setting list she was given, and made sure everyone was seated in the correct place. And, I'm not sure who wrapped the flowers at the end, but I actually asked them if they had worked in a florist, because our guest went home with the most beautifully wrapped flowers. The music was great, even the temperature was perfect. Honestly, we wouldn't have changed a single thing- it was absolute perfection.
Hi Jess and Sara We and our guests had a wonderful time last night! The food was amazing. The staff and service were excellent. Well done, we were delighted with how it went. Many thanks!
Hi Jess, Thank you for having us. It was a wonderful night, all our guests had such high praise for the venue and staff who looked after us on the night. We are so so grateful for all the hard work and extra care Spring Street Events put into our wedding to make it so special. Thanks again Jess!
Hi Sara, I would just like to say thank you very much, you have been a pleasure to work with. The day went on smoothly and according to plan. Our guests in our intimate wedding really enjoyed it and they were reminiscing about it come weekend. Would highly recommend Spring st events! Thank you once again 🙂
Hi Jess, Everything turned out better than I anticipated. It was perfect! Food, drinks and top notch service was amazing! Compliments to the chef and team, Izzy and Tiago, florists and you for making it all happen despite the last minute booking.
Hi Sara, We had such an amazing time on Saturday and we are so appreciative of you and your amazing staff. Everyone was blown away by the quality and quantity of food and beverage - everything was so delicious. The wait staff were incredibly attentive and took care of everything, we honestly have no complaints. We were so thrilled when we walked up the stairs and saw how beautiful the space looked. We can’t thank you enough. Please pass on our thanks to all the beautiful wait staff who did such an incredible job and helped make our night seamless and so enjoyable.
Hello Sara! Thanks for your email and patience, we've been eating and drinking our way through regional and rural Victoria. Thank you so much, and for being a warm and patient absolute professional in the planning phase and particularly when I started to fray at the edges in the lead up! We and our guests had the absolute best time. The food was incredible, the wait staff hit just the right balance and were so sweet with us and our guests, all the beverages spot on. I keep saying I want to do it all again and acttually enjoy all the food and beverages as a guest! One thing I regret is not being able able speak to the chef and kitchen staff and thank them personally for their delicious work and the care they took with additional requests like the fruit platters. We are just so chuffed with the way everything turned out and our interstate guests were treated to some of Melbourne's finest. Can you please extend our thanks to them, and let me know their names as when we are next down we will pop into Butcher's Diner and thank them personally. Paul recalls seeing you and waving on the day, my sincere apologies if I did not, I was fairly overwhelmed by the torrential downpour (we actually got stuck in the building we were in as the foyer flooded - total debacle!), being later than we had planned, not being able to take pictures as planned, not even sure I had my dress on right and my friend had to put my veil on as I almost forgot it 😅 All of this was very entertaining by the time we got to SC and saw everyone with a glass in hand, and all the stress started melting away instantly! Thank you once again to each and every person who was working that day who helped make it the sheer delight it was. We loved every second. Thanks for the receipts - it looks like the cocktails were a hit! Thank you once again for all your efforts and catering to a really broad range of requests. It really was a most excellent and memorable day.
Dear Sara, We were very pleased with the luncheon. The food was delicious and service very good. We will certainly be making only positive comments about our experience at Recoleta.
Dear Jess and team I just wanted to share my warmest thanks to you and all the staff for such a magical event on Saturday. Lucy, Sophie and Thiago were super professional, efficient and slick! Huge shout out to Steve for a fabulous lunch. The carrots, tuna and beef were outstanding and my favourites, but to be honest, everyone just raved about all the dishes. Please thank Steve for a superb spread. Lastly thank you to Claire for the gorgeous floral arrangements. The selection was just perfect and caught the eye and compliment of many of the guests.
Hi Sara, Thank you for hosting, your team were absolutely amazing, please let them know they made our night so wonderful. Best, Freddie
