The Art Space by Matt Irwin

Timber floors. Exposed beams. White brick walls, adorned by Matt Irwin’s iconic Melbourne photographic artworks. And an alluring set of doors which open out to a balconette perched above the bustling laneway. The Art Space by Matt Irwin is a unique and quintessentially Melbourne venue, located in historic Block Place. This venue boasts one of the best addresses in the city: smack-bang between Little Collins and Collins Streets, next to Block Arcade and the delectable Haigh's Chocolates. Nestled among the bustling European style cafés, the loft gallery is found beneath neon glow at the top of a sneaky staircase. The venue is spacious, yet intimate; perfect for private and corporate cocktail events of up to 60 people. It is a true Melbourne hidden secret. Originally a Cobb and Co. barn, the ambient space offers a wonderful blend of classic charm and contemporary edge. Please note, catering is not supplied, but you are more than welcome to organise your own catering or speak to one of the many cafes downstairs about their packages.
