NO LONGER AN ELITE SECRET

Inside the Long Room, Melbourne’s grandest inner-city event space …

It’s no secret that Melbourne is a celebrated cultural hub, home to some of the country’s most happening hotspots and vibrant venues. What has been somewhat of a secret until recently, however? That the city’s longest, best kept secret is seductively secluded within the walls of the impressive Immigration Museum

Introducing the Long Room, exclusively available for event bookings until March 2020.

An exquisite event space LENZO had the pleasure of styling for an industry-only ‘open house’, join us in celebrating the grandeur of this architectural beauty below - and learn how you too can experience it’s iconic proportions and elegance!

Intent on inspiring guests to occupy the space for their next event, we called on an outstanding team of party professionals to illustrate what pairs best with its palatial interior.

Photographed by LENZO editorial veteran Melanie Desa, Flos Botanical Studio set the bar high with a fantasia of florals in the Long Room’s beautiful vintage tones. Greeting guests at the entrance, the event flowers drew everyone into the ethereal space for an evening of sophistication.

Wooed by the jazzy sounds of entertainers Allegro Black, live illustrators Melina McGough Art and Alina Cioga Illustration treated guests to hand drawn portraits on arrival, a modern event memento that spoke of the Long Room’s stylish spirit.

Working with one of our favourite furniture suppliers - Dann Event Hire - to transform the expansive space into a series of cosy alcoves with plush ottomans and lounges, a stand out feature amongst the warmth we created was decidedly cool …

Heroing Restaurant Associates incredibly luxe catering, Ice Sculptures Melbourne brought their winter wonderland whimsy to the occasion with a bar crafted entirely of ice. A show stopping centre piece, the magnificent frozen feat was incredibly fitting of the space - jaw dropping in its own right.

With stately, old-world ambience, the heritage listed Immigration Museum is not only home to the grand Long Room, it boats a number of beautiful spaces for hire including the Atrium, Grand Foyer and Courtyard.

Especially suited to gala dinners and cocktail events, adjoining galleries can be kept open for discovery when hosting your private party in the 100-year-old space - originally a thriving hub of commercial trade activity.
