Inspire the next generation

Make an entrance for your guests in the State Theatre Lounge.

The State Theatre Lounge is one of two adjoining rooms that features a unique and vibrant back-lit artwork, comprising more than 464,000 marbles in a kaleidoscope of colour. This contemporary and creative space is suitable for cocktail parties, breakout meeting areas or as an additional boardroom-style meeting space. Looking for a larger event space? Why not partner with the neighbouring Amcor Lounge.


The 40-metre-long backlit wall stretching between the two lounges was designed by Ashton Raggatt McDougall and contains 464,000 marbles and 2300 individual objects donated by various departments at Arts Centre Melbourne in the mid-1990s.
