About ZINC at Federation Square

Located on the riverfront side of Federation Square, ZINC offers a rare private space in the heart of Melbourne. This modern and stylish venue adds a sense of elegance and sophistication to your special occasion, with contemporary design and striking features such as floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Yarra River. Shaded by elm trees, ZINC’s outdoor decks provide an excellent setting for pre-dinner drinks and wedding ceremonies with views across the river to the city skyline. Studio 2 at Zinc is a function room that can accommodate large conferences and exhibitions for up to 1000 guests. 

If you’re looking for a modern event space for between 100 and 1000 guests, ZINC at Federation Square is the perfect premium venue. Boasting floor to ceiling windows which flood the space with natural light, Yarra river views and two large outdoor decks, ZINC creates an elegant and sophisticated setting for your next event or wedding.

Comprising one large space or two smaller studios, ZINC is ideal for all events: gala dinners, product launches, lunches, seminars, cocktail parties, Christmas parties, and wedding receptions/ceremonies.

Studio 1 is entered via glass doors at the side of the building, leading into a large reception area with a bar to one side and access to the large outdoor deck overlooking the Yarra River and city skyline on the other. This is the perfect place to hold on-arrival cocktails and canapés while your guests mingle. The studio can be sectioned off by exquisite organza draping which adds a dramatic flair as the room is unveiled for your guests. Studio 1 accommodates 500 guests for a cocktail event or 200 for banquet.

Studio 2 is entered via glass doors at the front of the building leading directly into the studio, and it also has access to its own private deck with stunning river and city views. Studio 2 can accommodate 200 for a cocktail event or 150 for a banquet, making it the perfect location for more intimate events.

Studio 1 and 2 combined incorporate all spaces, opening up into one large event space. Utilising the reception area and both decks, Studio 1 and 2 can accommodate 1,000 for a cocktail event or 520 for a banquet. This space is the ideal location for larger events and weddings.
