Major renovations restoring elegance & old world charm creating the perfect venue for weddings, by injecting a sense of history, glamour with a modern twist.

The Transcontinental Hotel has quickly established itself as one of the most versatile wedding venues in Brisbane. Situated in the heart of the CBD, our classic 1880’s heritage listed building exhibits a Victorian era inspiration to its design. Its old-world charm with varnished dark timber floors, exposed brick walls, historic furnishings and picturesque inner city views makes ‘The Trans’ that perfect wedding reception venue.

Our weddings are hosted in our entire second level private area called the Platform Bar. This area contains a timber u-shaped bar, dance floor, multiple sitting areas, bathrooms and a private balcony spanning the length of the building.

The large cost of some weddings can leave future brides and grooms a little scared and overwhelmed. At the Transcontinental we keep very competitive prices to ensure that you enjoy your day without any heavy financial burden. Take some time and browse our packages that are all inclusive.

Having multiple entertainment areas allows for extreme versatility, and when matched with our own unique style & personality it means that you don’t have to place limits on your imagination.

Questions and Answers

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

Is there a Venue Wedding Co-Ordinator?

Yes, there is a venue coordinator. They will work with you to ensure everything runs smoothly on your special day and are there at any point you have questions regarding your wedding reception.

How long do you have to set up and clean up (i.e. bump in and out?)

At the earliest, you or your vendors will have access to bump-in from 9am the morning of your wedding reception. However, you are more than welcome to drop off any styling up to a week prior to this and we can keep it in our storage. We are very flexible with bump-outs and are happy to work with you or your vendors on when best suits everyone.

What will the Venue Wedding Co-Ordinator take care of for you?

The Venue Wedding Co-Ordinator will take of all the knity gritty that we don't want you stressing about. For example, finalising all the detials for the running of the reception approx. 6 weeks out from your wedding, contact your vendors a week out to organise bump-ins and bump-outs plus anything else they need from the venue, set the full table setting for your style of reception (i.e. sit-down, banquet, etc.), layout your place cards/bonboniers if applicable, light all candles and turn on any lighting that is apart of your styling, fully pack down all your styling at the end of the night, and plenty more.

Are you able to taste the menu?

Yes, if you decide to book with us, we organsie a full finalsation for the running of the recpetion approxiamtely 6 weeks out. Prior to the finalisation, we get you and your fiance to choose 3 entrees and 3 mains from our current seasonal menu that you will be able to taste while we finalise with you both. We can also do a wine tasting if you are unsure about what package you are wanting to go with.

Are there any other options besides a Beverage Package?

Yes, if you do not want to go with a Beverage Package you are more than welcome to have a Consumption Bar. There is just a minimum per head cost of $45.00 for this option. You can then customise your drinks menu to suit your idea of the perfect drinks menu for your wedding (for example, having spirits or cocktails available to your guests).

'Book this hidden gem of a venue now! Ash, the events coordinator, was a such a bundle of fun to work with. There was never a moment I doubted she didn't have everything under control. The serving staff on the evening were without fault, professional and attentive at all times. The food was of the an exceptional restaurant quality, seriously delicious; with dietary issues a breeze to cater for. The space was a fantastic size for our gathering of 90 people, with lots of spaces for those wishing to rest there feet or to dance. Every guest we have spoken to has said it was one of the best receptions they had ever been to! Seriously consider this venue!

Nicolle and Ashley at the Transcontinental Hotel made sure our wedding reception was perfect. Not only is the venue stunning, the ladies made sure everything ran smoothly on the night. The food was delicious and the service was great. We would highly recommend having your wedding reception here.

Honestly they were exceptional. Nothing was too hard for them. We just had the most amazing experience with them from the moment that we met them and until the wedding. They couldn't have done enough for us! We were so lucky to have found them! They're very talented and very experienced at what they do. The experience comes from Nicole and Ash has so much passion for the industry so it's just so amazing.

Thank you Ana & Che!!!! We loved helping you celebrate and cannot believe it has nearly been two years since you got married! We hope you are both doing well and we hope to see you both and little Hudson again soon!! xx

Our wedding reception went so smoothly. Ash, Jordi and the team were amazing, and the food was great!

15 Dec 2018

We cannot believe what you put together for us! The Transcontinental Hotel was an exquisite location for our wedding reception! Jordi and Ash spent hours with us in the lead up helping us to get exactly what we wanted in the final result. As soon as we walked into the venue, we knew the place would be perfect for us, and we were not let down. Jordi responded so quickly to our every question and idea with kindness and enthusiasm, Ash’s incredible seating plans helped us fit in all our loved ones for a sit down reception, even adjusting to suit last-minute requests. They smoothed over every hiccup on the day, and at every stage of planning. You were both so easy to communicate with and gave us memories that we will have for a very, very long time. Thank you so much!!

The absolute perfect venue for our wedding. We fell in love with the exposed brick, timber floors and chesterfield sofas in the platform level of the hotel. We elected to have our ceremony and reception all on that one level with a seamless transition from formalities to party. Jordi and the team hosted an amazing evening that was fun and intimate. We loved that we could be our selves and have a beer in the public bar and take advantage of the ambiance and history of a quintessential Queensland pub.

We seriously cannot believe how lucky we were to stumble upon this absolute hidden gem for our wedding (Aug.’18). After battling with other venues that were so strict, busy and expensive, from the moment we met Ash and Jordi they were so genuine, friendly and welcoming. These guys honestly back the idea of ‘this is your day, we’ll help you make it what you want’ and were so relaxed with everything from decor to logistics planning – but still gave really good input based on their experience. NOTHING was ever too much trouble. They are just legends. And the space itself is so awesome – just perfect for our wedding. Beautiful bar, lovely furniture, so many nooks for people to hang out. And people LOVED being able to chill out together on the beautiful balcony. Everyone commented on how much they loved the food and how good the staff were…and we partied til late! Our guests could not get over what an awesome space it was and how it really did make them feel relaxed and allowed them to have heaps of fun. The whole place just felt warm and welcoming – but still beautifully presented and professional. This place is going to start getting booked out real fast once word gets out…

We had our wedding here in April 2018. Beautiful venue, great staff and food. Ash and Jordie were very flexible and accommodating and made sure everything went smoothly. Would highly recommend it.

My husband and I held our wedding reception at the Trans in April 2018 and it was one of the best decisions we ever made. The Trans is gorgeous and the functions space is beautiful with it's exposed brick wall and polished concrete floors and massive timber bar! Ash and Jordi were super helpful and attentive - no question or request was too small or too hard for them. They organised our evening wonderfully and it all went off without a hitch! The food was incredible - from the canapes to the main meals everything was delicious! Our friends and family are still talking about how good the food was and how great a night they had! We have been to many wedding/events and we even have to say the food was the best at our own wedding! We decided to have a Pimms Cocktail served to each guest upon arrival and this was a really nice touch that everyone loved. The Trans was really accommodating and everyone was so so nice we couldn't have wished and hoped for a better venue for our wedding. One of the easiest suppliers to communicate with and we couldn't recommend them highly enough. xoxoxoxoxox

My husband and I absolutely loved everything about Transhotel! We had our wedding at the Trans in March 2018 and we couldn't have asked for a better venue. The service and venue were outstanding! Ash and Jordi met with us several times before the wedding and they very extremely helpful in providing advice, tips and they made sure that the night ran smoothly. They were so reliable and accommodating with food changes, decorations and letting us set up the day before, they made the whole experience so enjoyable. The Venue in itself is so beautiful and it has allot of character, so you don't really need much to decorate. Till this day, I still get many compliments from my relatives and friends about how delicious and amazing the food was, how great the service and the atmosphere were. The waiters were so nice, they did the walk arounds and made sure the drinks were topped up for all of our guests at all times and made sure that all guests were attended to with their requests. I highly recommend Transhotel, if you are thinking of having your wedding there, make an appointment with Ash and Jordi, you won't be disappointed! Thanks so much Transhotel for playing such a big part of our special wedding day! x

We had our wedding here in January 2018, and it was absolutely amazing . Ashley the Wedding & Events Manager could not have made our day any more magnificent. From our meet and greet the night before until we left on our wedding night all staff were fantastic. The room was perfectly set up and had everything we needed. Highly recommended for all functions. Thanks for making our day perfect

Outstanding venue! Ash & Nicolle are super star event coordinators, weddings can be so stressful but the Trans made it such a relaxing and easy experience. The food was amazing everyone of my guests commented on how great it was big shout out to the chef and whole kitchen team for that. Would 100% recommend this venue the function room is so beautiful and just as stunning as the stock pictures. Thank you again for everything

Had our wedding here last August. The staff were so amazing! Took care of so many details i hadn't even thought of. Made us and all of our family and guests feel so special on the day. Also the food was was so good.

29 Jun 2017

We had a small wedding reception with 24 adults and 4 children. We had a cocktail time and then a banquet style dinner in which all of us were able to sit at one long table. The event manager of Trans Hotel had been so helpful, knowledgeable, and accommodating leading up to the big day and the staff there overall was SO helpful and friendly! I did the wedding styling myself and had gotten some ideas from Ashley--the wedding and events manager--on table settings, where to display the cake, etc. Everything turned out lovely and just as I envisioned. The food throughout the evening of the reception was absolutely delicious. (My favourites were the pork belly and beef pasties as canapes!!! Yum! The guests loved them too.) I was so impressed with how much food there was even before we sat down to dinner! One of our guests needed gluten free foods and the staff was so accommodating with this! They made sure that she had plenty of GF canapes as well as made it so that all the menu items I chose for the banquet were GF. The space provided for the reception is very spacious and is the entire second floor. However, we only had a small group so didn't need to use the entire space. We had an area for dining, dancing and mingling, and even space for the kids to be able to play a bit. The venue is quite charming with its exposed brick, big windows, and overall layout while also being a sort of 'blank canvas' that you can style in a way that suites you without any existing decor clashing. (A different Prior to finding the Trans Hotel, we ran into a lot of problems in finding a venue that didn't have requirements on minimum guest numbers or a reasonable minimum spend. We didn't have that issue at the Trans Hotel at all and the minimum spend was reasonable. I highly recommend this venue!

Thank you so much Tiffany & John (and little Robbie of course)!! It was our pleasure to have you all here and we really appreciate the kind words. What an amazing review indeed from an amazing family. We wish you all the best! xx

You get so much for your money! The service is incredible- Ash, Nicole and the team really made our day. They went above and beyond. Our guests adored the venue- food was incredible and service was great.
