Venues With A Difference For Your Next Work Function In Perth

What’s your reaction when you hear the words, ‘work function’?

Do you think of a staid and sedate occasion where everything’s a bit formulaic?  Do you envisage the same old hotel conference room with dull food and boring surroundings?  Then you haven’t discovered all the amazing venues in Perth that put real ‘wow’ into work functions!

Here are six of Perth’s most unique venues for corporate events:

The Ferguson Foundry

The industrial aesthetic of this versatile, purpose-built exhibition space in the heart of Maylands will add creative personality to any corporate function.  Its high ceilings, painted wall murals and charming rusticity are supported by all the modern conveniences necessary for a successful function including adjustable lighting, movable internal walls, secure parking and heavy duty 3-phase power.

Hippocampus Metropolitan Distillery

For smaller corporate events (up to 40 people), you should consider this working distillery in Gordon Street, West Perth where spirits are lovingly hand-crafted from a beautiful steam-driven copper pot still.  Choose from their many pre-set function packages or create your own unique event at their atmospheric distillery bar and cellar door.   Functions can include tastings of their craft-distilled vodka and gin, tours and presentations on the history of distilling, cocktails and antipasto as well as a variety of other catering options too.
