Offering total flexibility and privacy, Lightspace is ideal for cocktail parties, formal dinners, product launches, fashion parades, exhibitions, photo shoots, video clips, charity fundraisers, engagements, music launches, weddings, birthday parties or anything you can imagine…
Our Bar Lounge (Space 2) is perfect for smaller cocktail parties, presentations and dinners. Larger events and weddings can combine the Main Warehouse (Space 1) to create a dramatic sense of occasion. We never have two functions at once so every booking has exclusive use.
We have hosted corporate events for Virgin, L’Oreal, Redken, Channels 7, 9 and 10, Lamborghini, Cartier, Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Volkswagen, Jeep, Honda, Bank of Qld, NAB, Stihl, Amnesty International, Sportsgirl, Witchery and Black Milk… just to name a few. We also love private and creative events, so please contact us if you’re organising something special.

We are a licensed venue so drinks must be purchased via Lightspace. This will be via a pre-paid package or on consumption bar (we have some amazing selections at fantastic prices). Our caterers can provide the food and staff to serve the drinks, or we can hire the bar staff. Chin chin!
Lightspace 1+2 can host up to 500 cocktail style, 400 theatre style or 250 for sit-down dining. The spaces can be further divided for more intimate events using drapes we have onsite. The bar lounge (Space 2) is perfect for 150 cocktail style, 100 theatre style or 60 for a sit-down dinner.
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. After normal business hours the streets are normally clear of vehicles, so there are normally plenty of spots available in Scanlan or Prospect Streets. Street parking is fairly sparsely available during normal business hours but there are plenty of loading zones and metered parks directly out front.
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.
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.
We have a projector (fixed into the ceiling in the bar lounge), 4 x 500 watt speakers, 2 mixers, 2 microphones and iPod jacks for you to use. Anything else will have to be hired in. We can recommend trusted suppliers if necessary.
Upon arrival the venue will be set with our onsite furniture and accessories. You can re-arrange if desired, or add your own touches.
For most events the bump-out must occur the next morning as we can't load trucks and vans in the street late at night. There will be NO bump-out via the front door after 10pm, some loading can occur via the back terrace (i.e; catering equipment) but this must be done as quietly as possibly as we have neighbours in close proximity.
This is normally arranged depending on the amount of set-up required and whether we have an event the previous night.
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.
As we have neighbours in close proximity all events must conclude by 11pm on Friday and Saturday nights, 10pm otherwise.
The Emporium Hotel is a brilliant option only two minutes walk from the venue, otherwise Tryp, Limes, Alpha or Rydges Hotels are approximately ten minutes. Breakfree Apartments on Brookes Street is good for those on a budget. Otherwise we're only 5-10 minutes from the city via taxi.
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 or change of date all payments made will be forfeited, so please make sure you're ready to go when you lay your money down.
