We are currently open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday.

Available at all times for bespoke events.

Located in the Southgate building on Southbank and within the Arts precinct, we take inspiration from our creative neighbourhood.

What was once an iconic wine bar, Commune Wine sees a revival of approachable wine and beverage as a focal point. 

Our wine bar and front balcony is perfect for a glass of wine and snack. We encourage you to explore our retail wine wall, and perhaps take a bottle with you, too. Our main dining room is ideal to settle in and relax, offering full ‘a la carte’ so you can sit back & enjoy.

Our back balcony is an ideal private dining space, complete with relaxed linen and greenery, and stunning views of Melbourne’s iconic city scape, such as Flinder’s Street Station and Southwark Cathedral.
