Showtime Events Centre is the birthplace and flagship venue of Showtime Event Group, where the philosophy behind renowned hospitality and great food in a unique venue was born.

Originally known as docking shed 11 during Melbourne’s formative days in the 1800’s, this heritage venue has lived an exciting life. Situated along South Wharf Promenade, parallel to the Yarra River and gazing over the Melbourne city skyline. Showtime Events Centre maintains the proximity and prowess of the CBD while allowing it to have the history, space, and charm of a venue elsewhere.

The warehouse-style venue was repurposed and redesigned in 2010, solely for events. Purpose built features are apparent upon entry. Fully integrated lighting, sound desk and audiovisual are the expected minimum at this riverside venue. A custom-designed chandelier bar is always an attention-grabber as it sits down the far end of the venue above the large stone bar top.

Original, wide hardwood floorboards lend to a bygone era seldom available anywhere in Melbourne. Full amenities including a modern green room and elegant bathrooms add an air of luxury into what is considered to be a great example of industrial-influenced design. While wrought laser-cut iron walls are illuminated by coloured LED’s from behind, modernising the venue in a balanced juxtaposition of old and new.

The addition of the riverside marquee is the perfect setting for pre-dinner drinks or as an arrival space for guests, any time of the year. Often used to great effect with food stations, canapes or whisky bars to provide that extra exciting element.

There is a reason why Showtime Events Centre has been at the forefront of Melbourne’s competitively brilliant hospitality and events industry. The unique features, location, and style of the venue matched with an experienced team, mean that your event in this space will be one to remember.
