The Laneway Rooms launched at InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto

first_imgInterContinental Melbourne The Rialto revealed its stunning new-look ballroom and conference venue, The Laneway Rooms, at a “Uniquely Melbourne” inspired event at the venue last night, featuring food stalls, local wine, buskers and street art.Formerly The Rialto Ballroom, the newly refurbished space has been renamed The Laneway Rooms, inspired by Melbourne’s iconic laneways and featuring an outstanding 40 by five meter graffiti and street art installation, spanning across the laneway wall right outside the venue’s windows.Eight local Melbourne artists from The Blender Studio were commissioned over three weeks to transform the abandoned laneway into a work of art, providing a striking contrast effect as the backdrop behind the interior walls, which were stripped back to their original 1890’s brickwork.As one of the last remaining examples of 19th Century Victorian Gothic design, The Laneways design adds to the hotel’s unique architecture, bringing elements of history together with the modern edge of today’s urban Melbourne and creating something “Uniquely Melbourne.”“The Laneway Rooms are a unique addition to InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto’s iconic Melbourne architecture, a beautiful fusion of historic opulence with cutting-edge Melbourne style, and we are incredibly excited to share the distinct ballroom with the public, helping to create unique events and quality memories for all guests that visit the hotel,” InternContinental Melbourne The Rialto hotel manager Sebastian Germershausen said.The Laneway Rooms comprise of three separate event rooms which can be opened up into a large ballroom, catering from business conferences to social events, special occasions and wedding receptions for up to 370 guests.Check out our photo gallery hereTo enquire about your next special event or meeting at InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto, please contact the Events Team on +61 3 8627 1622 or via email at [email protected] = ETB News: Lana Bogunovichlast_img
