About This Venue

The Facility is Melbourne’s newest multi-level events space within the iconic Younghusband Woolstore and is only 4kms from the heart of the CBD.

The 100 year old red-brick warehouse, spans the equivalent of two city blocks and has been a creative hub for decades, only recently transformed into a unique function and expansive events space. The Facility is a quintessentially ‘Melbourne’ experience, featuring exposed steel beams, a sawtooth roof, graffiti and laneway access (food trucks anyone?).  An absolute dream blank canvas venue, with several spaces to choose from, giving you the flexibility to create a wedding that reflects you. With industrial warehouse vibes, wet weather options and the ability to BYO catering, The Facility has you covered. Oh, and did we mention it’s pet friendly?

Allow your guests to be the first to explore these spaces not previously open to the public.

With four unique spaces available we can cater to weddings of all sizes from 50 to 1,500 guests. Each space includes access to a wedding party suite.

Tallows: 350 banquet / 650 cocktail
The Annex: 90 banquet / 100 cocktail
Greenhouse: 856 banquet / 1,500 cocktail
Purnell’s Loft: 256 banquet / 500 cocktail

We look forward to showing you around!
