4 Unusual Event Venue Options

When you’re planning an event, one of the things you really want to nail is the venue. Whether it’s a product launch, a conference or a themed event, the venue needs to suit your purpose and your audience.

While there are plenty of traditional function spaces available, sometimes you might want to step outside the box and host your event somewhere a little more unconventional. Let’s take a look at a few ideas for unusual event venues that will get your attendees talking!

Galleries or studios

If you’re envisioning an event with a cool, creative vibe, an art gallery or studio space is a great alternative to a standard event venue.

Many of these spaces will be available for hire after-hours, so ask around and see what’s available.

Outdoor spaces

Hosting an event outside rather than indoors can give you a point of difference. Think gardens, parks, beaches, or even the grounds of private buildings… The opportunities are virtually endless.

Just be sure to check with your local council about any permissions, regulations or costs involved with holding an event in a public space.

Repurposed spaces

In most cities, there are a host of spaces that are no longer used for their original purpose, but are perfect for events.

We’re talking disused warehouses, multipurpose theatres or cinemas, even former train stations or carpark buildings… What could be cooler than decking out one of these spaces for a unique event?

Co-working spaces

If you’re planning something relatively small, a co-working space can be a great option.

Most co-working spaces are modern, well-designed and conveniently located, so if you’re seeking an intimate event venue with a difference, this could be it.
