Venue Specs

With ample open space, the venue can be booked as one 660m2 room, or two distinct internal spaces. These can be subdivided into smaller areas for more intimate functions. The best news is you will have exclusive use of the venue… we never host two events at the same time.

We have a mix of vintage and contemporary furniture onsite, projector, soundsystem and microphone available for use. You may decorate as you please and there will always be a Lightspace manager present to ensure everything runs smoothly.

What is the capacity of the main space?

Lightspace can host up to 500 cocktail style, or 250 for sit-down dining. The spaces can be further divided for more intimate events using drapes we have onsite.

Will there be another party on the same evening?

Nope! We only ever host one event at a time, so once you book the space is all yours!


There is no onsite parking for events at Lightspace, only a loading bay within the venue. Street parking is fairly sparsely available during the day, but this clears out around 4pm, so there are normally spots available in Scanlan or Prospect Streets.

If you are hosting a small daytime event or meeting there is the possibility of arranging parking within the main space, which creates around a dozen carparks. Please ask us for details.

Can we play music?

Yes, we have equipment onsite so you can play your favourite tunes, or you can borrow our iPod... complete with a quality selection.

There is also a sound limit and we have neighbours across the road, so the volume is more than enough to have a great party, but not enough to wake the dead.

What AV equipment is included?

We have a projector (fixed into the ceiling in the bar lounge), speakers, microphone and iPod jack for you to use. Anything else will have to be hired in. We can recommend trusted suppliers if necessary.

What time will I have access to set-up?

This is normally arranged depending on the amount of set-up required and whether we have an event the previous night, but generally access is allowed late morning/lunchtime for an evening event.

Can we bring in our own decorations?

You can customize Lightspace however you would like, providing that any existing decor is not damaged in the process. No nails, screws or glue may be used. Any onsite furniture that is removed has to be replaced at the end of the event or the next morning by arrangement.

Closing times?

As we have neighbours in close proximity all events must conclude by 11pm on Friday and Saturday nights, 10pm otherwise.

Are there any hotels nearby?

The Emporium Hotel is two minutes walk, Limes Hotel is approximately ten minutes. Otherwise we're only 5-10 minutes from the city via taxi.

I'm ready to book! What's next?

You may make a tentative booking at any time, however the date is only secure with the payment of our deposit fee, which varies according to the venue hire.


In the event of cancellation all payments will be forfeited, so please make sure you're ready to go when you lay your money down.
