The Commons
at Ormond Collective

The Commons at Ormond Collective, originally known as The Belgian Beer Garden, will re-open this October as Melbourne’s most beautiful garden café and wine bar, for every man, woman and their dog. 

As Victoria commences the critical move to open up shop, pardon the pun, The Commons at Ormond Collective offers sprawling garden areas that can cater for the new hospitality restrictions. The Commons boasts an all outdoor setting across four new retail offers at their master venue Ormond Collective. The Conservatory, The Garden Café, The Green Shed Beer Bar and The Kitchen Garden are covid safe havens for social distancing and outdoor dining, within a whimsical, memorable garden event space, right in the heart of Melbourne.

 This joyful and eclectic space will be layered experience for guests – easy take away grab and go from The Conservatory, long lazy rose and summer spritz filled lunches in the Garden Cafe, or an easy meal in the Green Shed Beer Bar, all serviced using the herbs, salads, and veggies from in the Kitchen Garden tended by The Big Group chefs.
