The Stables


For something a little out of the ordinary, the Stables is one of the more unique spaces in Melbourne. The venue’s former life has long been shed and it is now a collection of three rustic rooms of considerable proportions. Features include concrete floors, soaring ceilings, semi exposed brick interior walls and exposed wooden trusses. The room also has a gallery hanging system, selected AV stock and large windows that stream in plenty of light.
