Venue Testimonials

I had my wedding there and it was amazing! The venue, the food, but more importantly, the people and the service there were just superb! Definitely the best wedding venue I've ever seen in Melbourne!

Mario P ·

Such an amazing function venue. Amazing service too. Calm and helpful professional staff. Also can you complain when the location is next to Yarra river? Such a million dollar view. Also to add to the mix it was the new year eve and the firework show from zinc was one of the best places you can watch it from. Not too crowded but right in the middle of the action. Also the vibe here is amazing. Would highly recommend it for your next function.

GREAT VENUE - RIGHT IN CITY CENTRE, SPACIOUS AND MODERN: Our company had a "development day" at Zinc recently and I was very impressed with the facility. Good IT infrastructure to support the day's event and a great location within Fed Square (seconds away from Flinders St Station and adjacent to several major tram lines). Venue is very modern with good access to alfresco areas and high quality catering on site
