Christening Venue Brisbane
Our rustic chic function room is the perfect place to celebrate your child’s christening or naming day. Whether it’s a large affair or a more intimate celebration with nearest and dearest, Factory51 will ensure its a joyous and memorable occasion.
Rustic Chic Function Room
Our gorgeous function room is blessed with warm red brick walls, handmade timber trestle tables, and a luxurious crystal chandelier. With so much character already instilled in the space, all it takes is a hint of styling to add a personal touch for your bub’s Christening or naming ceremony.
Family and friends will be invited into The Workshop via a private laneway entrance. There they’ll find breathtaking 7m high ceilings over polished concrete floors. With full climate control and sound engineering, Factory51 is perfect for bands, DJs, and families creating lasting memories.
An exclusive marble bar is the perfect addition to your shared feast (for up to 153 guests) or cocktail function (maximum capacity 200). We encourage cultural customs and will take care of all the details on the day, so you can relax and celebrate your little one!

Frequently Asked Questions
IS THERE A VENUE HIRE FEE?
We have no venue hire fees, just a minimum spend requirement on food and beverage. If you would like to enquire about availability and minimum spends for our function venue, please send through an enquiry with your proposed function details and our Functions Manager Ellie will get back to you as soon as possible.
DO YOU ALLOW EXTERNAL CATERING?
We provide all catering in-house with our great team of qualified chefs. We do allow you to bring in your own celebration cake, lolly buffet, or cultural sweets. Please inform our Functions Manager ahead of time so that we can make arrangements.
CAN WE BRING A CAKE?
You are welcome to bring in a cake! We offer complimentary cutting of the cake to be served on a platter, or alternatively we can cut and plate your cake individually for a small fee per person.
ARE KIDS ALLOWED?
Of course! We are a family-friendly venue so kids are welcome to stay for the whole function. We know that children don’t always want to eat the same as adults, which is why our menu includes delicious kids’ meal options.
Can WE BYO ALCOHOL?
We provide all beverages for your function in-house, and do not permit BYO alcohol. We can accommodate special requests, so please ensure you contact us ahead of time so that we can place an order for your Christening.
Can WE HAVE A BAR TAB INSTEAD OF A BEVERAGE PACKAGE?
You can choose to have either a bar tab or a beverage package for your Christening. Our professional staff will keep you informed on the night as to how your bar tab is tracking. You may wish to extend the bar tab, or change to a cash bar once the amount is reached.
Can FACTORY51 PROVIDE STYLING?
We love our rustic chic venue, and are happy to provide styling options to further enhance the space for your Christening. You can choose from fresh foliage, fairy lights, and/or gold candelabras which our team will set up for you. Alternatively, you can bring in your own styling which we can set up for an additional fee.
Can WE CHOOSE OUR OWN STYLISTS/SUPPLIERS?
You can! We are happy to work with your preferred stylists and suppliers. We are also able to recommend some great vendors that we regularly work with and are already familiar with our venue. You may also choose to do your own styling, which you can set up yourselves or have our team set up for you at an additional fee. Our high industrial ceilings, rustic brick walls, and crystal chandelier provide the perfect backdrop for your event – you won’t need an elaborate set up to impress your guests!
