Perth’s Best Event Spaces To Host Your Next Big Do
Planning a super-cool warehouse wedding, the chicest long table lunch, or an event that’ll knock your clients’ socks off? We’ve rounded up some of our favourite lush, blank-space event spaces for you to check out.
Old Pickle Factory
West Perth has proven to be a treasure trove of converted warehouses, with plenty of options for those looking for a central location with an industrial feel – the Old Pickle Factory certainly fits the bill! With a capacity for 300 guests, an on-site kitchen and two built in bars, as well as a covered courtyard, it’s the perfect blank canvas with all the amenities you could need to make your event run smoothly.
4 Golding Street, West Perth
Just around the corner from the Old Pickle Factory, this New York-style warehouse is a photographic studio during the day and sweet party digs for up to 250 guests at night. If you’re into the warehouse look, you’ll love Fridays Studio’s huge windows and distressed brick walls – perfect to pair with some glamorous florals and styling.
13 Old Aberdeen Place, West Perth
Cleaver Street & Co.
If your guest list isn’t quite as long, Cleaver Street is just around the corner from Fridays Studio and the Old Pickle Factory, but caters to a smaller crowd of 100. Another refurbished warehouse, the space features a stylish wood-panelled built-in BYO bar and an abundance of plants to give it an organic touch. A co-working space during the day, these guys have created a light and airy space that perfectly balances out the industrial vibes.

Vin and Flower
Just a hop, skip and jump into Northbridge and you’ll be at Vin and Flower. This Newcastle Street space is another blank canvas venue that can be made to suit any style or event. With a few of the industrial touches we’ve seen at other warehouse spaces (like their stunning raw concrete floors and white painted brick walls), these guys have a spectacular pitched ceiling that brings the look to a whole new level, as well as a super cute bricked courtyard. Vin and Flower also provide heaps of amenities to make your event extra special: cocktail furniture, staff, AV equipment, a finishing kitchen and a fully functional bar. With a location this close to the city, what more could you want?
361 Newcastle Street, Northbridge
Recently refurbished, this 1908 heritage building is a jewel in the CBD. Dramatic, glamorous, romantic – this space is anything but shy and retiring. Floor to ceiling windows with original cornices bring an extra-special old-world touch, while Moana Hall’s fully-equipped bar will ensure your guests stay well-hydrated.
Level 1, 618 Hay Street, Perth
Perth City Farm
Okay, okay… we’re obviously pretty into a warehouse. But when it comes to Perth City Farm, can you blame us? With multiple rustic warehouse and barn spaces to suit, a lush courtyard and fully equipped commercial kitchen, non-profit community environmental centre City Farm can cater to all sorts of events – particularly if sustainability is a concern. The Barn and courtyard together can hold up to 400 guests, and they provide generous three-day hire packages to make sure you don’t have to rush around on your big day.
1 City Farm Place, East Perth
This amazing historic building in North Freo is a versatile, intimate space. With a dark and sumptuous foyer, modern bar, charming reading room and tranquil courtyard, there’s an area suited to every stage of the evening – whether you’re having a chic cocktail to start or boogying the night away under the stars. Guildhall holds up to 120 people and have connects to some amazing event teams who can take the planning off your hands.
222 Queen Victoria Street, North Fremantle
Montgomery Hall is another historic venue, but trust us – this one will truly take your breath away. After a huge redevelopment, this 1904 ballroom has been meticulous restored to its former glory. Originally built as a dining hall and theatre, this huge space seats 150 and is perhaps the most grand venue you’ll see in Perth.
One Heritage Lane, Mount Claremont
For a truly unique venue, you can’t get more one-of-a-kind than the Raft. Permanently moored on the Swan River, it’s got spectacular views across the water and of the city – and there’s no more of a dramatic entrance than showing up via boat!
Barrack St Jetty, Swan River
Another option for those who don’t mind a bit of drama! The Quarry’s vast stone walls and amphitheatre seating makes it a stunning backdrop to your nuptials (and your dance floor), plus they have convenient features on offer – like private dressing rooms, overnight storage and parking close by.
1 Waldron Drive, City Beach
Lamont’s Bishops House
Built in the 1850s, Lamont’s is a truly spectacular setting for your next event. Sat amongst the private gardens under some twinkling lights, it ’s the perfect blend of inner-city convenience and heritage romance.
Corner Spring Street and Mounts Bay Road, Perth
Another Freo gem, Assembly Yard is a brand spanking new creative event space housed in an industrial flavoured converted warehouse. The huge lawned area and festoons give off serious down south vibes and for a minute you’d think you were at a brewery in Yallingup. It’s a completely blank, concrete-floored canvas, so bring in your own styling, flowers, furniture bar and food trucks.
19- 21 Montreal Street, Fremantle
Old Customs House
Located in Freo’s historic, architecturally preserved West End, Old Customs House has recently opened its doors to events after being home to an art space for some time. It’s suitable for large events, which is awesome news as there’s been a gap in the market for cool spaces that can host up to 500 pax. One word: skylight. There’s a gigantic void in the ceiling, creating a glassed atrium that gives way to beautiful natural flowing light thus making everything look EPIC.
8 Phillimore Street, Fremantle
Pakenham Street Art Space is a gallery also in Freo’s West End. It’s a huge open sophisticated gallery, but with a raw Freo vibe – dramatic, super moody and great for winter events. Pro tip: it’s dark AF, so have a stylist bring in some extra lighting if you want your photos and film to look schmicko.
22-26 Pakenham Street, Fremantle
We’re obsessed with the luxe vibes of the Royal’s Euro wine bar Willi’s, but we’ve had to put our passion on pause for a hot minute as they’ve dealt with the quiet CBD streets. While they wait for the city to get back to its lively self, they’ve transformed the bar into a lavish event space for your next intimate celebration – just make sure you order the caviar!
531 Wellington Street, Perth
The Hen House
Sure, these spaces are all beautiful – but what if rock and roll is more your style? The Hen House rehearsal and recording studios host some of Perth’s best bands, so the sound system (and warehouse vibes) are second to none – plus you can BYO all food and beverages to keep it easy-breezy. It may be tucked away in a pretty industrial part of Osborne Park, but that just means you can really dial up the noise to 11.
Unit 3 Rowallan Street, Osborne Park
