We also have a pair of both handheld microphones and headset microphones available for easy performing and presenting. Our private dining venue is also incredibly versatile and can morph from a contemporary minimalist to romantic and maximalist setting with just a few easy tweaks.

A private commercial kitchen for hire in the heart of South Melbourne

There are some occasions that just deserve to be celebrated with zeal. This means swapping out a reservation at your favourite restaurant for a private dining room with a bespoke dinner menu. And the best way to host a private dinner function is by booking out your very own event space rather than just settling for a private room in a bustling club or restaurant.

Thankfully, our stunningly preserved South Melbourne warehouse has also been renovated to boast beautiful commercial kitchen and food preparation facilities. So if you’re on the hunt for a commercial kitchen for hire, look no further than our immaculate amenities here at Canvas House.

Say a hearty ‘Salut!’ at your next soiree. Book Canvas House as the private dining venue for your next intimate family dinner or large-scale function today.
