Venue Testimonials

Great historic venue with a large circular parquetry dancefloor and proper raised staging area big enough for a large band. The staff are fantastic and helpful, food is delicious. The ballroom has a beautiful draped fabric ceiling with lighting effects and a large conical multi-tiered chandelier.

This venue is by far the most stunning ballroom in Melbourne, you will not find a dancefloor this size and half as elegant and grand. Everyone commented on the venue from the style, set up and amazing food. You must check this place out and have it at the top of your list of considerations.

San Remo Ballroom was absolutely beautiful! My husband and I had a large wedding and the team made sure everything ran smoothly. Nothing compares to the beautiful draping of the ceiling- we got some fantastic shots! The venue possesses timeless beauty!
