“Everything you want and need in a wedding venue, amazing staff, amazing venue and amazing food! We had our wedding at Encore and couldn’t speak more highly of it. We have received so many compliments from our guests on how beautiful the venue was and the food especially, I was too busy mingling to eat any food which I am so disappointed as it was amazing at the tasting! Our event coordinator was an absolute joy to deal with and responded to all my questions and requests promptly. The venue itself is a beautiful setting with a beachfront terrace to top it off. Definitely recommend!”

Nearby Accommodation


We understand that making a decision on your preferred venue can take a little time and you may often want to consult with family and friends. With this in mind we offer our potential clients a tentative booking for 7 days once they have been to view the venue. This essentially places your name on the date but is not a booking. Once the 7 days has expired your name is removed from the date. Encore St Kilda Beach reserves the right to take a confirmed booking over any tentative booking.  We will try our best to contact you to offer you the date but unfortunately until a booking is confirmed and deposit paid the booking is not confirmed. 

All you need to do is notify us in writing. We will then issue you with a contract to complete and a deposit invoice for 20% of your minimum spend; this amount can be paid by cash, credit card, EFT or direct deposit. You have a maximum of 7 days to make this payment and submit the completed confirmation form.

All our event spaces have minimum spends which are priced according to the date, time and number of guests. A minimum spend is the minimum amount to be met on food and beverage to reserve the space. The per head cost is determined by what you choose to offer your guests.

Encore is licensed until 1am - we have found this is the perfect time for everyone to enjoy your special day.  

Unfortunately we do not allow BYO alcohol. However, if you have some special wines in mind, please let us know and we will look to do a special order of your selected wines.

There are 420 car spaces available within the St Kilda Sea Baths Complex. Two complimentary prepaid car passes are provided per booking. Please note these are not reserved parking. Additional pre-paid passes can be arranged. 10 days notice is required if more than 10 pre-paid parking passes are needed.

Absolutely, we aim to provide suitable options for all our guests. We do however need adequate time to accommodate special requests and therefore all dietary requirements must be confirmed no later than 10 working days prior to the event date.

Yes, we have a range of options to hold your ceremony onsite – it is a very special location with shimmering water backdrops and views across the bay and to the City. Please speak to one of our event team professionals about these options.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Encore and we couldn't have been happier with our choice of venue. The location is beautiful with gorgeous views and great backdrops for taking professional photos. The space itself is modern and really doesn't require a whole lot of decorating to look fabulous. The fairy lights created the perfect magical fairytale vibe we were after and looked great in all of our photos, I'd definitely recommend having them! The selection of food and beverages was one of the most important factors for us when planning our reception, and the menu and drinks packages on offer at encore were spot on. All of our guests commented after our wedding about how beautiful and delicious the food was. The quality of food and beautiful plating really created that fine dining experience we were wanting. What I loved most about Encore though, was the staff. I cannot speak highly enough of them. Everyone we dealt with throughout the planning process, and especially on the day/night of our wedding, was so professional, accommodating, and made sure that everything ran smoothly. They really went above and beyond to ensure we had the perfect night. I'd highly recommend Encore to anyone planning a wedding!

Everything about Encore from the planning, the staff, the food & the ambience was perfect. All of our guests said it was the best wedding they had been to. Highly recommended.

Hi Maree, Thank you so much for your feedback and congratulations again, we are so lucky to have been apart of your special day!

May 2017

From the get go we knew the Encore was the venue for us, we needed something special, that was warm, modern, luxe, that had excellent food and an element of something spectacular to wow our guests (whom the majority of were travelling from the other side of the world). We had specific needs and cultural expectations that we were able to tailor to suit, without any issue. During the planning; the communication, flexibility, support and friendliness shon through, Nell - it was almost like talking to a friend in the end! You were so kind and really really went above and beyond to make sure I was ok and that the goals and vision that I wanted to achieve was facilitated, the little touches and add ons were so thoughtful and surprising - so thank you! The day was such a blur, what is a wedding without dramas, but the hiccups on the day (family, travel issues, road accidents, time blow outs and vendors AWOL) were handled gracefully and professionally. I am a bit sad that we had to rush things (outside of both ours and your control) but I was so so happy to have Michael there on the night to get things back on track; He was a shining light, so calm, reassuring, happy and efficient (lots of the single ladies were keen to know more too ;))! Your staff were impeccable, the service was faultless, the food was magnificent, all the little details that we had worked so hard on were all there just as I envisaged and not one person had anything negative to say! Everyone was just wowed. I honestly wish we could do it all again, just so we could take it all in, eat amazing food and drink sensational wine!!

We recently had our wedding at Encore (June 2023) and were very happy with our choice! We picked the venue as we felt it offered the best aesthetic and food/drink packages for our budget and numbers, and execution wise the team didn't disappoint, as we received so many lovely comments from guests about the outstanding food and service on the night. Thank you!

Encore was an amazing venue for our wedding reception - Jody was our wedding planner and she ensured that everything went smoothly on our special day. All our guests complimented how nice the venue was including the delicious menu and cocktails. Highly recommend for weddings and special events!

Wet weather plans

What are all possible wet weather plans/ideas we should consider for a spring wedding? I feel it rains a lot in spring, but we really want to have a spring wedding.

Encore St Kilda Beach

Here at Encore, we give all our couples the opportunity to upgrade to a rooftop ceremony from October - April. The ceremony's final location is an on the day decision we make based on the weather (wind, heat and and rain). If we are looking at a rooftop ceremony, the wet weather back up option is our beautiful dancefloor, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Port Phillip Bay. Here, you have stabilized climate control and are protected from the elements, whilst still enjoying the beautiful view of the beach. If we are unable to proceed with the rooftop, the rooftop upgrade is refunded to you post event.

why do some venues not allow pets?

Encore St Kilda Beach

Some venues do not allow pets for a number of reasons. Some of these are:

- There is not an appropriate space for the pet to go to the toilet

- Some pets can cause mess in the venue

- Some pets can become scared ad uneasy being in an unfamiliar setting

- O,H&S reasons - some venues cannot serve food where animals are present

If having your pet involved in your wedding is important to you, there are websites that outline pet-friendly wedding venues.
