Sophia at The Prahran Arcade
One of Melbourne’s most iconic buildings, which famously housed David Bromley’s studio and home for 13 years, has been transformed into a unique, new events space.
Located within the iconic Prahran Arcade, the heritage building has seen many incarnations over the decades. Today, this historic Chapel St icon has been lovingly restored to its former glory to become “Sophia”, a multi-faceted events space that can host your special occasion.
Inside resides two spaces that may be used independently or together - a grand ballroom and a gorgeous space reminiscent of an art gallery. ‘The Ballroom’, an elegant room with ornate chandeliers and a breathtaking balcony overlooking Chapel Street. ‘The Gallery’, a remarkable 60 metre space punctuated by 26 arched windows which reveal the elaborate architectural works suspended high above the arcade.
