Cargo Hall Melbourne Events & Parties

When you’re looking for a city venue to host your next big social event (a birthday, anniversary, baby shower, or Christmas party), there are a few boxes it needs to tick. Does it have enough room for your guests to move around and mingle? Is there plenty of natural light and fresh air? Does it have gorgeous views of the city, without being too removed from nature? Just when you thought it was impossible, Cargo Hall comes along.

Under the Showtime Event Group banner, Cargo Hall has been designed to host events of distinction. A converted docking hall, this warehouse is now one of South Wharf’s most exciting events and entertainment spaces. It’s equipped with lighting and sound rigs in the high ceilings so you can plan for grand celebrations, but it is just as showstopping with minimalist endeavours. Dark timber floors set the scene for an industrial aesthetic, which is balanced with soft drapes and curtains around the room. A modern bar in the rear of the hall is easily accessible and a private VIP suite is perfect for the guest of honour to do any hair or makeup touches required during the evening.

When it comes to catering, Cargo Hall has got you covered. They provide lavish menu selections in a cocktail, buffet, or plated style, and specialise in modern Asian, Indian, Australian, and European cuisines. Their dessert menus are divine, and they even offer entirely plant-based menus to delight the vegetarian and vegan members of your party.
