YBF Melbourne is home to two centrally-located events spaces - one more formal and one on the casual side. Also, it has a selection of unique meeting rooms: The Ballroom, on Level 1 of YBF, is a historic space –the actual auction hall of the former wool warehouse that called 520 Bourke Street home from the 1860s. The Ballroom features vaulted ceilings, crown mouldings and beautiful chandeliers; we also own The Mess Hall, our casual communal space on the top floor.
