Venue Testimonials

I would highly recommend this venue for any wedding. The venue speaks for itself, but it was the work of the staff that ensured our wedding was truly amazing. They were professional, organised and helpful throughout the entire process. Could not be happier.

Madeline P

Beautifully restored Art Deco venue. They have two function rooms, the main large room with a full stage and very attractive curved, tiered steps leading up to the full stage. The entrance foyer is quite large and is decorated with period light fittings that give an attractive glow to the room. The smaller Streeton function room on the lower level is accessed from the rear of the building. Lots of parking at the side and rear of the venue.

Frank S

Our family wedding here went off without any issues due in no small part to excellent management and set up by the events team. Meals were off the chart in quality and in being able to be customised to exact taste. The art deco building is gorgeous and comfortable, with great surrounding amenities and parking.
