Thank you to the Arcana team for making our 21st birthday celebration a special evening with family and friends, and one that we will always remember with fond memories. The planning up to the date of the event was perfect and any special requests were never too much trouble. Bar staff on the evening, Sam and Hannah, were attentive and again, any special requests were always met with a smile. The all-inclusive bar tab, including cocktails, worked a treat too. Thanks also to the kitchen staff as the food was great, there was plenty of it and it was served in a timely manner. A mix of platters and canapes meant that food was available throughout the evening. The extras really added to the ambiance. The light up numbers and the balloon garland were, I have to say, spectacular. Again, they are organised by the Arcana team, set up by them, and all we had to do was turn up an hour beforehand. We also liked the exclusivity of the venue and the availability of parking for those who chose to drive. Friends and family were impressed, and we were often asked throughout the evening how did we found this venue. Luck, but we're so thankful we did.

I can't thank Andrew and the team enough for helping me to put our event together. They were more than accommodating and helpful with all the extra hires and preferences I had to customise our birthday party to what I had envisioned. Arcana is a great space, and we had lots of comments on the night of how it was a 'cool hidden gem' venue.

Excellent venue. My band just recorded our music video in the epic Empress Room. Amazing fully blacked out room with lighting and sound system. Perfect for what we were looking for, and one of the only venues that have this feature in Brisbane. Plus there is a nice dressing/kitchen area for having a break etc. Staff were friendly and great! FIVE STARS!

The most amazing spot! We booked this for a milestone birthday and Andrew and the team where amazing. Such a relaxed atmosphere people could sit back and relax. Love the fact it's a quiet hidden space and the food was fantastic, lots of suggestions for dietary requirements. I can't thank them enough for making this such a relaxed event.
