Fenix Events is a boutique event venue in Melbourne, specialising in events, conferences and wedding receptions. It has a reputation for being one of Melbourne’s most iconic venues and the combination of its secluded waterfront setting, central location and strong culinary focus makes it the ideal place for unique events in Melbourne. Fenix’s two contemporary events spaces are perfect for conferences and large workshops through to special events like launches and cocktail parties.
I walk into these doors and I SWOON. The recent renovation ensures that this quality venue does not disappoint its clients with its sleek and sophisticated style. And it’s not just its style that impresses, it’s long list of facilities and features also makes the event manager in me want to run up and hug them. You can expect flexible meeting spaces to suit events for 8 to 300 guests with breakout rooms available, floor to ceiling glass windows throughout the venue with the most incredible views, state of the art AV, complimentary wifi, secure undercover parking with special rates available for delegates, easy access to public transport, a private terrace overlooking the Yarra River, premium menus designed by their own chefs, charcoal linen underlays and white linen overlays (yes, linen is important!), nespresso coffee or barista served espresso coffee and beautiful natural surrounds that can be enjoyed during breaks. Le sigh, this venue is perfection.
And with the Major Award of Caterer of the Year in the Victoria & Tasmania Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering HOSTPLUS Awards for Excellence 2015 under their belt, you know you are going to experience world-class catering that will delight your guests.
Their event spaces are seriously flexible with the choice of two first floor spaces, Orana and Botanica, that are perfect for 35 people u-shape style or 120 theatre, or for larger events you can seamlessly combine the two to take up to 350 theatre style. The gorgeous River Terrace underneath is a stunning space that opens up onto the river banks and can take up to 300 people theatre style.
