This place has the right confluence of elegance, ambience and service to carry forward various moods of the evenings. Situated in the heart of Docklands, Alumbra with its waterfront views, serves as the most sought after venues for parties and functions in Melbourne. Enjoy some great music with heart thumping beats and groove with your friends and folks in the opulence of this place.

Alumbra remains closed to the general public from Monday to Thursday, however you can host your private parties and functions on these days. You can also let your hair down in this place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. Add some gourmet BBQ snacks, cocktails and puff of Sheesha pipes to make your evenings more flamboyant.

Alumbra lives up to its name which literally means "to light up" in Spanish language. The soft glow of lights in the bar and the huge sculpture of Budhdha's face with red and pink lights, create a balmy atmosphere all around and yet keep the level of enthusiasm up and running. There's a wide range of drinks available, so you will always find something to suit your taste. Food is available throughout the night and is priced reasonably for you to enjoy every bite. The bartenders and other staff are quite friendly and helpful, and do not hesitate to enchant you with their skilled conversations.

Those of you who have been to this place will vouch for its enigmatic energy and soul stirring zest. This rest of you should include this place as a must visit in your list, especially if you are a party lover.

This July Alumbra is ushering the cold winter of Melbourne with a dazzling fireworks display on every Friday after 4 pm. You can also show off your dance moves on 13th August 2011, when Alumbra celebrates its Saturday's 1st birthday. Burn the dance floor with live music from Mr. V and get your pluses racing.
