With a long history tied to industrial trade, South Wharf is a smaller inner suburb that has become known for being home to Melbourne’s Convention and Exhibition Centre. The area has undergone a great deal of development over the years and the new apartment blocks ranging along the Yarra River are still reminiscent of the industrial past. South Wharf is also home to a number of function venues that are a mix between the contemporary building works and the 19th century buildings that used to dominate the suburb in its peak of industrial activity.
This history lends itself to the venues and means that the vast majority of these spaces are ideal for corporate events and business-related functions. The ultra-urban style lends itself to the sophistication of any event and perfectly suits those companies that want to really impress their clients. This is not all that South Wharf can cater for. From social events to artistic fundraisers to creative exhibits there is no end to what the venues of South Wharf will complement with their chic designs.
These function venues use chrome, dark woods and subtle tones to create the most refined spaces in Melbourne. With a touch of low-level lighting and cleverly used neon lighting, guests will be immediately impressed with the surroundings. Not only does this allow the entire event to have a classier edge but it is a sign of how well these venues are run. The staff and managers of these venues understand the need for an understated service that will take care of every detail. They are experts at blending into the background but also ensuring that every aspect of the event goes smoothly. With this kind of dedication and such a stylish background makes for a winning combination with any function venue that you choose in South Wharf.
