How to Host Your Next Event at The Social Club

You know the gorgeous spaces you see in magazines and Pinterest that get you thinking to yourself; “I wish we had something like this in Canberra!”… Well, our local business-babe, Renee Douros has just answered all our prayers and finally opened the doors to, The Social Club last weekend.

If you haven’t yet seen this gorgeous space splashed all over social media, The Social Club is a blank space venue located in Kingston decked out with the finest hand-picked finishes including soaring 4-meter-high ceilings, Carrara marble benchtops, exposed beams, full-height glass windows, French gold hardware, handmade pendant lights, original timber
floors throughout and a set of fun Pop and Scott swings.

‘Canberra needed a venue like this; an architecturally designed, blank canvas space that rivals anything you’d find in cosmopolitan cities like Sydney, New York and Paris. The Social Club is able to cater for a range of events –anything from an intimate birthday party, a work conference, a product launch to a full-scale wedding.’ Says Owner Renee.

The Social Club wants to make your event dreams come true, with a no fuss approach and a list of Canberra’s best suppliers to be arranged on your behalf if you wish. Otherwise you can BYO your entire event. Anything goes and we’re in absolute awe.
