With nine metre-high windows providing sweeping Melbourne views and a contemporary interior delivering an elegant atmosphere, the Panorama Room is a memorable spot to dance the night away. 

What Metropolis does better than any other Melbourne wedding venue is light. The towering walls of windows let just the right amount of golden glow into the Panorama Room as the sun sets on the city, bringing lively city lights as the night goes on. The city views from this perch are simply unrivalled.

If you’ve always envisioned a cool industrial style wedding that feels simultaneously chic and luxurious, this stylish venue is right up your alley. It’s easy to create long dining tables that feel lavish and you’ll still have plenty of space to install plush lounge areas and cosy nooks within the open-plan space.

Your venue hire at Metropolis includes a shiny black dancefloor and a full package of lighting that means you can wash the room in the lighting colour of your choice while setting the perfect scene for an epic dance party.
