Due to the advice received from the Government, we have decided to close our doors for the safety of our staff, customers and others.

The Hydrant is hoping to reopen once it is safe for us to do so and the Government have given the all clear. 

You can keep up to date through our social media channels:

Please stay well, and we hope to see you again soon!


Hydrant Food Hall, located in the CBD of Ballarat Central, is a renovated heritage warehouse space. Serving as a cafe throughout the day and functions venue at night, this versatile space is perfect for any event. Situated in a laneway, the aesthetic instills a sense of ‘hip and funk’ in being Central but hidden in a great location.
