West coast, best coast. What about best host? If you’re hosting an event in Perth that you want to stand out from the crowd, securing a truly unique venue could be the quirk you need to start trending online. We’ve listed eight of Perth’s more interesting venues below to help get the creative juices flowing.
Unique Event Venues in Perth #1:
It’s always sunny in this Northbridge urban oasis
Henry Summer is a sprawling wine and cocktail garden that exists somewhere between the realm of indoor and outdoor, in a place that’s always summer. With lush greenery sprawling across the floor, walls and ceiling, the venue has numerous open-air and covered spaces that can be utilised for intimate private functions and workshops, right up to extravagant engagements of 900 people.
For those familiar with local hospo-hero Clint Nolan and his Lavish Habits team, Henry Summer is one of their latest creations, so you can expect the same peak levels of class, creativity and ‘cool’ we’ve come to expect from them.
Unique Event Venues in Perth #2:
The Flour Factory
Revitalised factory in the heart of Perth
Keeping the name from its days as a 19th-century flour mill, you won’t find wheat processing on premises anymore, just a trendy inner-city bar with three stunning event spaces above. The Factory and The Top Floor are large blank canvas spaces, with dark polished floorboards and neutral white walls that make the exposed beams an eye-catching feature. These spaces hold between 80 and 250 guests, and cater to everything from weddings to workshops. The all-white backdrop makes for an impressive gallery space or exhibition.
There’s also The Sherry, which is an intimate modern rooftop space with plenty of exposed brick and greenery, sitting 25 guests for a conference or product launch, or up to 80 cocktail.
Unique Event Venues in Perth #3:
A newly-renovated warehouse in Burswood
Not your average warehouse space. From the moment you pull up out front this venue screams modern, minimal, and stylishly upgraded. The large open space inside can be arranged to support everything from seated presentations to interactive workshops for up to 200 guests. A blank canvas, you can bring everything you need to create your vision, or let them take care of it for you. Locally Crafted is all about showcasing Western Australian talent and produce, so you can trust that your event will be well catered for with the best of the west.
Unique Event Venues in Perth #4:
A not-so-tiny meeting place in the CBD
Tiny’s Bar is many things, but tiny probably isn’t one of them. Entering at the base of Perth’s QV1 building, Tiny’s opens up into a large indoor and outdoor courtyard area, restaurant, bar and liquor emporium. There are six unique function areas for 35-100 guests up for grabs, or whole-venue hire for up to 220 people. Tiny’s is “not a cookie-cutter venue”— so whatever crazy idea you’re envisioning for your event, talk to them, they’ll make it happen.
Unique Event Venues in Perth #5:
Moore & Moore
Rustic Fremantle warehouse that’s oozing charm
While a lot of the converted warehouse spaces go for a modern urban-industrial vibe, Moore & Moore has more of a classical European rustic charm that sets it apart as one of the most stunning boutique venues in Fremantle. The peeling paint exposing red-brick beneath isn’t by modern design, and the creeping greenery and candle-lit courtyard add to the vintage charm. Suitable for evening or daytime events of all shapes and sizes, there is a dedicated Breakfast Meeting Room and gallery space, and the on-site cafe can cater to all consumer-types.
Unique Event Venues in Perth #6:
A quirky cocktail bar in Perth CBD
Hidden down a laneway and behind an ordinary door is an extraordinary venue. The super quirky cocktail bar is filled with a collection of “Granny May’s treasures”, from old mismatched furniture, to crowded picture frames, and wobbly wooden tables. But the knock-out feature of this venue is the impressive fairy-tale inspired wall murals, bringing a touch of fantasy and inspiring many an Instagram photoshoot. The two main spaces can be exclusively reserved for functions between 40 and 90 people.
Unique Event Venues in Perth #7:
Private forest retreat in Crawley
Go big or go home, right? The Somerville Auditorium is one of Perth’s most picturesque venues, located within the immaculate UWA gardens. Most popular with the wedding crowd, the 10 x 20 metre clear roof marquee is less commonly-known as a private party or corporate function venue for up to 200 guests. The magical setting is completely engulfed by a cathedral of Norfolk pine trees, creating a dramatic private forest ambience your guests won’t forget in a hurry.
Unique Event Venues in Perth #8:
Perth City Farm
An ethical urban farm in East Perth
Tucked alongside the railway lines by Claisebrook Station is an unexpected urban farm and nursery space. Within this quirky volunteer-run community there are a number of unique venue spaces for hire, including a big old barn that opens on to a courtyard complete with milk-crate seats and oil-drum tables. With a capacity of 200-400 guests, the rustic space is only limited by the creative event planners imagination, and has been used for exhibitions, art shows, launch events, and as a pop-up market place.
Unique Event Venues in Perth #9:
The Nostalgia Box
Unleash your inner-child in the inner-city
It’s a long, long way from the boardroom, but sometimes you need to think outside the box to make an impact — and we all know nostalgia is a powerful sentiment. Boasting Australia’s one and only video game console museum as well as an interactive game area, The Nostalgia Box could provide the unique x-factor you’re looking for when planning your next fundraising or networking event. Yes, they have Mario Kart and Pac-man.
Unique Event Venues in Perth #10:
An elegant CBD venue with Gatsby glam
Moama Chambers recently reopened as Moana Hall, and while the cafe/bar may be new, it has kept all of its old-world charm. The original hardwood floors, huge arched windows and black and white design create an elegant ambience for a cocktail event or formal function, and the balcony overlooking Perth CBD tops off a Great Gatsby inspired evening.
Unique Event Venues in Perth #11:
Freo’s newest, oldest venue
This old industrial site has been transformed into one of Fremantle’s coolest hangouts. Keeping the history and architecture of the Artillery Drill Hall, the premises is divided into five unique venue spaces, from a micro-brewshed for 60 people to the massive entertainment hall that houses 250 seated or 400 people as a theatre. The 1895 building has been well-and-truly updated as a premium venue for everything from music gigs to corporate functions and weddings. Keeping with the hipster vibe, they’ve got a permanent food truck out back and no shortage of beer — with 56 independent taps spread across the venue.
