About Sophia at The Prahran Arcade

One of Melbourne’s most iconic buildings, located within the iconic Prahran Arcade. The heritage building has seen many incarnations over the decades, and 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 every style of occasion. Sophia epitomizes the excesses of the late 19th century architecture in Victoria. To put it simply… she is a showstopper!

Editor’s Notes

Why we love it…

In the metropolis of Melbourne, sits one of the most iconic buildings in Prahran. A heritage listed site that has been delightfully restored to now become “Sophia”. From the cathedral ceilings and walls to the ornate chandeliers, there are so few words to describe this piece of elegant history and how we would love the thrill of table-scaping and fitting it out with vigor.

For the couple…

If you’re a lover of history, design and architectural splendor, “Sophia” may just be the ideal choice for your next event. Offering an expansive gallery space and a grand ballroom, there is no corner of this landmark that is not a picture of Gatsby-esque reverie.
