If you’re searching for event spaces in Brisbane, you’re likely to come up with a long list of pubs or pretty standard conference spaces. If you’re an enterprising event organiser looking for something a bit quirkier, then fear not! We’ve hunted down some of Brisbane’s more unique event spaces that will have guests snapping and ‘gramming like nobody’s business. At Chilternscatering.com.au, our team strive to ensure that you’ll have a memorable party catering Sydney, be it a wedding or a private get together.
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover — this is no ordinary church. On first look you could be forgiven for thinking this is just a wedding venue, but this beautifully renovated church actually offers a modern and luxurious space for events of all kinds. Catering for anywhere from 30 to 250 guests, this Fortitude Valley stunner can be set up for both sit down and stand up events including corporate events or pop-up markets. If the church space is too big for what you need, the downstairs gallery space is also available for hire.
If it’s eclectic industrial chic you’re looking for, then Lightspace is your answer. From exhibition-style events to smaller presentations and functions, the main warehouse space has capacity for up to 500 guests in a modern industrial style space, complete with polished concrete floors and timber roofing. There’s also a lounge bar furnished with mixed vintage furniture for a more relaxed setting with capacity for up to 150 guests (or 70 seated).
Keen to make the most of Brisbane’s sunny days and balmy evenings? Each space also has access to a Japanese-inspired outdoor terrace complete with bamboo hedge and water feature.
Ever wanted to live it up with a party in a penthouse suite? The Art Series Hotel Group can cater for events in their penthouses and they have just opened their first property in Brisbane — The Johnson. With rooms adorned with unique art from celebrated abstract artist Michael Johnson, and boasting views of Brisbane’s CBD and parklands, this is one venue bound to make guests feel a bit fancy. The Penthouse spaces can accommodate intimate events of up to 40 guests, or hire one of the gallery spaces for larger events of up to 100.
Another Fortitude Valley surprise, Cloudland is home to not one but seven unique function spaces, each with a different theme. Rooms include a garden oasis complete with over 5,000 living plants and waterfall, a nod to New York’s infamous Rainbow Room, a secret cellar room, and an Alice in Wonderland inspired space. Rooms vary in size, catering for events of up to 700 guests.
While this venue is technically a pub, this is another venue with a host of functions rooms — nine to be exact! Located beside Brisbane’s burgeoning arts precinct of Southbank, The Fox Hotel let’s you choose from a range of creative spaces from Fish Lane Creative Studios to the quirky ‘Collectors Room’ or French-inspired ‘Boudoir’. There’s a rooftop bar to boot. Spaces vary in size, catering for events of up to 360 guests.
Located on Fortitude Valley’s happening James St is…a brick showroom?
