Immigration Museum
The space was styled with elegant florals and an ice bar

Tasked with launching a brand new event space to industry guests, Restaurant Associates and Museum Spaces joined forces to create an elegant yet celebratory event for the opening of the Long Room at the Immigration Museum.

They called on preferred suppliers to bring the space to life, with Lenzo, Allegro Black and Dann Events all on board for the event.

Restaurant Associates went all out with an ice bar, complete with fresh oysters and Veuve, making the perfect photo moment for guests.

Champagne and oysters were among the menu highlights

A live illustration activation saw guests stop by for a real-time illustration of themselves, while Allegro Black’s entertainment kicked of the dance floor with smooth saxophone tunes.

The client was impressed with the overall space and event, saying it was the perfect kick-off for the event space.

The Long Room is now available to hire from 18 October 2019 to 12 March 2020.

Illustrator Melina McGough was on-hand to capture event guests

The Immigration Museum is part of Museums Victoria, which includes a range of event venues such as Melbourne Museum and ScienceWorks.
