The perfect place to make memories that last a lifetime 

Looking for party venues in Melbourne to celebrate a final year formal, presentation night or valedictory dinner? Welcome to San Remo Ballroom. We know you need a venue that impresses and a planning process that’s seamless. Our stunningly renovated Art Deco ballroom and experienced team make us your perfect match!

We’ve been bringing students’ event dreams to life for over 60 years. Whether you have a great idea that you need our help to execute or would like inspiration and guidance to get you started, we would love to work with you.

San Remo is a beautiful Art Deco ballroom and one of Melbourne’s original party spaces. Don’t let that worry you though, we know no one actually wants to party like it’s 1999! Our function rooms in Melbourne are fully refurbished and now beautifully modern inside, but we were careful to retain all of the stunning original features that add elegance and glam to any event. Think Gatsby style chandeliers

Seated events with between 150-650 seated guests work perfectly in our space, or if you’re planning a cocktail-style, stand-up event, we can hold up to 1000 guests.
