In a tribute to its heritage, Lux Foundry was established six years ago and has since built a reputation for great service, delicious fare and a welcoming environment.

What was once a gas and retort house providing lighting for parts of Melbourne has been beautifully transformed into Melbourne’s Lux Foundry (lux meaning a unit of measurement of light emittance), a favourite among Brunswick locals and a unique option for off-site events and functions.

“Lux was originally operated by Sir Robert Gibson as a foundry making cast iron stoves,” Emilio Rogliano, co-owner of Lux Foundry, says.

“People love cafés that are typically off the beaten path in old warehouse style buildings. We all love enjoying a coffee and breakfast or lunch outside when the Melbourne weather behaves and we have one of the largest outdoor cafe spaces,” he says.

The heritage venue can be hired for corporate events from 5:30pm until 11pm for groups of up to 90 cocktail guests.

“It’s a unique and expansive space that includes the exclusive use of our huge outdoor courtyard. The food we serve for events can often be found on our menu so the quality and quantity of food is excellent.”

Situated at 21 Hope St. Brunswick, Lux Foundry is just a short stroll from public transport as well as Brunswick’s main retail strip full of eclectic shops.
