    Mona is a unique place to hold your function.

    Our chef, Philippe Leban, has a Michelin star-studded resume. He will prepare contemporary, French-inspired cuisine to your order.

    Our function rooms, Eros and Thanatos, are the ideal setting.

    Of course, if you want to take the stupendous option, go for a cocktail reception inside or around the museum itself.

    EROS & THANATOS

    dining

    Eros and Thanatos are our two main function rooms, which can combine forces to become one larger room.

    

They are (it is) on the ground floor of the Ether building by the concert lawn, so there's also an option to incorporate a marquee.

    
The lawn also allows for the optimus prime experience for musos and live gigs, with mobile stages, and top-notch audio, visual and lighting technologies.

    WINE BAR

    A cosy, elegant spot in the middle of our winery, well primed for perving, or just looking at the view of the vineyard. The barrel and production rooms are visible behind the glass - so you can also watch the making of your drop. Suits drinks for up to 100 people.

    CHAPEL

    chapel

    Introducing Belgian artist Wim Delvoye's latest creation, Chapel (2010-2011).

    You might be familiar with Wim's work already: we've his Cement Truck (2008) upon the plaza, Cloaca Professional (2010) in the bowels of the museum, and we even dedicated an exhibition to him in 2012. 

    Wim's cheeky, mock-gothic grandeur lends a unique air to your ceremony or cocktail party - and also affords nice views, and access to our lovely Ether lawn.

    Please contact Functions for menu options and pricing.

Go parking, or cruise the upper harbour and see the sights of Mt Wellington, Government House, and Risdon Cove, or try the outer harbour - Opossum Bay, Iron Pot Lighthouse and so forth.
