Set within the iconic St Kilda Sea Baths, Encore is pure and simple, casual and familiar, with a flexible design. Offering multiple spaces which have been designed to extend the interior spaces into alfresco entertaining areas, making the most of the unsurpassed beachside location.
Inspired by the natural beauty and sun-kissed cultures of the southern hemisphere Encore’s vision is to offer Melbourne an event space like no other, steering away from what people have come to expect from standard offerings. Encore St Kilda has been created with the look and feel of an iconic beachside restaurant, designed to have personality, natural light, and amazing views.
Encore’s backdrop of shimmering water, swaying palms, sailboats and kite surfers silhouetted against the glinting sunset over Port Phillip Bay is the perfect setting for almost any occasion, from conferences, corporate events, and birthday parties through to beachside weddings, bat mitzvah’s and bar mitzvah’s.
With a focus on delivering expert service, mouth-watering food, and fine wine, Encore has become one of Melbourne’s most unique event destinations. Encore can offer a range of packages and bespoke options to suit every requirement.
The venue is available to be hired privately and can hold up to 700 cocktail style and 350 for a sit-down dinner. If you are looking for more intimate spaces Encore can be divided into several smaller rooms including the Bay View Room with suits 300 stand up and 150 seated, The Garden Room, 180 Standing and 140 seated, The Bay Room 150 standing and 70 seated and The Promenade Room, 120 standing and 70 seated. Encore also offers a unique rooftop which can handle 300 for a cocktail style event and 600 as an exhibition space and has 180 degree, waterfront views across the bay.
Photo opportunities are in abundance with the venue being located right on the St Kilda foreshore and within close proximity to Catani Gardens, the Historic St Kilda Pier Kiosk, Espy Hotel, Palais Theatre, and Luna Park.
The Sea Baths offers a substantial car park if traveling to the venue by car or bus as well as being easily accessible by tram which stops on The Esplanade just a stone’s throw from the venue’s front door.
