Welcome to Melbourne’s ultimate pop-up gala event space, offering everything you need to host a memorable end of year event.

The design, food and beverage, and technology have all been purposefully considered, encapsulating the sophistication, creativity and innovation of the Melbourne event landscape.

Capable of hosting an intimate cocktail function, luncheon or gala dinner for 500-2000 guests, this versatile space can also be modified to accommodate smaller groups of 200-500.


Bold colour shouts a willingness to be confident and courageous. In 2017, Lorem Ipsum is making a statement and throwing your guests a vibrant end-of-year celebration.
A daring colour palette, mirrored reflections, dramatic textures and patterns take the design of this space to another level. Distinctive and innovative, the 2017 concept is a bold transformation to excite guests.

First impressions

Guests are greeted by an impressive reflective façade, a mirrored view of Melbourne with geometric panelling adding another dimension.

Lorem Ipsum Intimate

A gourmet appetite

Expect nothing less than award-winning food, masterfully crafted by some of the world’s leading chefs using premium, seasonal Victorian produce.
