There’s no denying the Melbourne skyline…it’s beautiful; and from 89 floors up, it’s spectacular! You may not realise – ‘cos I certainly didn’t – that the Eureka tower has a venue space tucked away on Level 89, which is the highest floor of the Southern Hemisphere’s tallest residential building. Sensational views for your wedding reception!
I feel privileged to have been included in a small group of talented wedding bloggers/florists/wedding planners and magazine editors, with only about 15 of us in total attending a beautiful luncheon put on by the space today. We were treated to entrees, a tour of the venue, delicious mains and too tasty desserts! I was so humbled to meet some beautiful ladies behind Real Weddings magazine, the girls from Style Co. and the insanely talented Kate Hill of Kate Hill Flowers.
Having only recently gone up to Eureka Skydeck myself, I was completely in awe of the view and the thought of having this as a wedding space. It’s amazing what you’ve got in your backyard without even realising it! The venue are so flexible with what they put on, ranging the size of the wedding function, as well as flexibility around suppliers/vendors. It’s always such a difficult task trying to find the perfect venue, that when you find it, it’s so wonderful to be met with such flexibility from a venue.
Capacity of the venue varies based on what you’re wanting to achieve for your special day, and the venue is split into two exclusive event spaces which can be hired separately or together based on the size of your wedding. At a high level, if you were to just hire the Northern Point Room (the largest space of the two), you could have 80-110 comfortably seated. Cocktail style you could easily have 200-250. Hiring out the whole level gives you more flexibility, and can comfortably fit up to 400 cocktail and 150 seated. For full breakdown of the space, see the Northern Point Room floorplan: Eureka 89 Floor Plan.
The views are truly spectacular. Imagine arriving at the venue at dusk, seeing the sunset and then seeing the whole of Melbourne light up over the course of the evening. Pure bliss!
