Housed within a converted warehouse in South Melbourne lies one of Melbourne's most versatile and innovative spaces. Smart Artz Gallery matches an industrial space with contemporary Australian art to provide the perfect surroundings for just about any event under the sun. From wedding reception to musical performance, from corporate event to birthday soiree, the striking setting of Smart Artz Gallery is able to transform to suit any number of events. 

It's worth noting though, that Smart Artz is particularly popular with corporate functions, as well as weddings. 

Within the capable hands of the Smart Artz team, the endless options for decorations, furnishings and segmentation transform the gallery into whatever ambience or seating arrangement your event might require.

Release all worry and stress to the staff; experience and consummate professionalism is the name of the game.

The sophistication and personality of Smart Artz doesn't end with the space, however. The in-house catering team is able to construct personalised and mouth-watering personalised cocktail style menu to suit any taste.

We loved having our wedding at Smart Artz gallery, Sharon and Dianne were fantastic so helpful, it's obvious they love helping people celebrate special occasions at their venue. They were so helpful leading up to the event and on the night. The food was fantastic, the staff was amazing. We had the best night and are so grateful for the ladies and staff at Smart Artz for making it possible!

Excellent venue. Not the stock standard reception venue. It's the perfect venue for a fun, party type atmosphere. Wonderful staff. The staff go above and beyond to make sure everyone is looked after. Food was outstanding and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Di is so helpful and attentive. Loved it and so did our guests.

The space is a gorgeous old warehouse art gallery, Dianne and Sharon were communicative, helpful and very easy to deal with. The reception ran very smoothly, no doubt due to their impeccable organisation and wonderful catering and staff.

Delicious in-house catering from our reception venue, the catering staff were the most attentive and organised that I've ever seen. The food was quite suitable for those in beautiful dresses and suits i.e not messy. Couldn't fault the catering or staff here.

These guys are AMAZING! The space is stunning and the team is simply brilliant. They accommodated last minute changes, anticipated our needs weeks before and on the day, the staff was warm and attentive. Wish we could have a second wedding there!!!
