The George Lane Gallery can be used as one whole space or be separated into two spaces. This versatile floor plan enables different uses and looks for your event. As the spaces are only divided by a sliding door transitions can happen during your event and the two rooms can become one.

The George Lane Gallery is located in the iconic George Hotel Building on St Kilda’s Fitzroy St. The heritage building has stood since 1857 from which it has housed many uses and influential personalities. Its ornate external and internal features provide an image of the suburbs early development and significance to the evolving architecture since the mid 1800’s.
