Highways Venue Information

When it comes to entertainment venues, all roads really do lead to Highways. Since opening our doors in 1997, Highways has consistently been ranked amongst the leading club venues in Victoria, reaching the coveted No. 1 position in 2007. It’s a record we’re rightly proud of and one we keep striving to maintain year after year. Conveniently located in the hub of suburban south-east Melbourne on the perimeter of Betfair Park (Sandown Racecourse), Highways has something for everyone – from dining and lounge areas, first-class function facilities and our hugely popular Ahern’s Irish Bar. Our professional and courteous service ensures that you’re always welcome at Highways. And if that’s not enough, there’s a non-stop smorgasbord of fantastic benefits available for our loyal Members through the R&R Club to add to your experience at Highways. So, whether you’re checking us out for the first time or are a regular visitor who already knows what all the fuss is about, thanks for dropping in online and we hope you enjoy exploring our site.


The restaurant at highways is renowned in the area for providing unmatched service & food quality. Whilst the venue itself has been recognised as the Victorian venue of the year, the restaurant has received individual achievement, being recognised as the best bistro or buffet in all of Victoria. The restaurant changes its menu on a seasonal basis which ensures a fresh and modern offering all year round. The menu features a selection of 'pub' favourites as well as modern Australia fusion cuisine and some fine wines to accompany them. The restaurant has two outdoor areas to dine in, a kid’s room with play equipment and video games.

Ahern's combines the traditional community bar atmosphere of an Irish Pub, with the excitement and buzz of a contemporary entertainment venue.
