Venue Testimonials

Very cool meeting space for special events! Converted from an old fish processing warehouse, it's now available […] for conferences and special events. The bones of the building inside are rather exquisite, with Roman pillars as support around the periphery. The bathrooms are nice.

Joseph Raczynski

The building is big enough to host conference, party, wedding or any other event for lots of people. The building itself is the old fish market which adds to the feeling of enormous old architecture. As the building is facing the river, the view is unforgettable.

Maya Eva

Great venue. Welcome drinks on the veranda, dining in the great hall, followed by a retreat to the bar area. We were treated to a fabulous live band - plenty of space on the dance floor. Staff were brilliant and very attentive. Super organised and very professional.
