My partner Adem and I had our engagement party at the Lux Foundry. We couldn’t be happier with the venue, such an iconic space. The food was delicious and plentiful, all our guests were super impressed. The professionalism and efficiency of the staff was outstanding. We had a night to remember forever. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Lux to anyone considering a function there

’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The Lux Foundry was the first venue we went to see and we knew it was the place to be. The night was a major success and the guests couldn’t say more good things about the food! A very special shout out to Ben! Ben’s friendly, funny and relaxed vibe immediately had a positive impact. Ben took the time to answer any questions we had but above all, provided me with a realistic and practical view of what the night will look like whilst incorporating where flexibility can be accommodated. The staff on the night were all beautiful, fun people and ensured everything ran smoothly. You’ll be thankful if you chose the Lux Foundry. I know I am. Thanks for being a part of my favourite memories ❤️

I just wanted to thank you all for a memorable evening last night. Everyone appeared to thoroughly enjoy themselves and it went through without a hitch. A special thank you to Anna and the staff on duty who were fantastic - they were particularly attentive with no request being too hard. They were truly accommodating and no doubt a true asset to you. The food was also a hit. Thanks again and we will certainly keep you in mind for our next function.

Just thought I would touch base and attach a photo from Casey & Ryan’s wedding, it really showcased your venue. Thank you for a great night had by all; as you can see by the drinks tab. Everyone had a great time and I hope we did not inconvenience anyone with the noise. Ran out of Melbourne early but Ben managed to obtain some more just to avoid a Riot. The food was delicious and plenty of it, no complaints there. Your staff are amazing and handled the night with ease. No one went hungry and loved the food. Thanks once again.
