Our Space & Facilities

Our exhaustive list of state-of-the-art amenities such as AV speaker systems and light-speed Wi-Fi will ensure all your practical needs are met so that your 50th birthday party goes off without a hitch.

And if you’re after something a little more low-key, we also have our cosier spaces, including ‘The Nook’ and ‘The Study’, these being smaller, more intimate rooms that are positioned away from our main gallery space. Both of these smaller spaces have their own assortment of AV equipment and connections so you can easily run slideshows or other multimedia materials to celebrate your 50th birthday.

On top of all this, our team of expert event planners can provide you with access to some of our trusted hospitality partners and entertainment professionals to bring the best of what Melbourne has to offer for your 50th birthday party.
