  • Additional Details

    To name our new Culinary Food Hub in North Melbourne.  The hub is based in a shared building which is an old woolstore (the building is called the Commonwealth Woolstore & Produce Company) in an inner urban/Bronx/industrial suburb of Melbourne (the food capital of Australia).

    Our Culinary hub will include

    • A large 300 pax capacity venue (to be used for food and non-food related events ie weddings, corporate events, product launches)
    • A small cafe - home cooked healthy, fresh, seasonal produce, freshly baked bread (from our catering company) - cafe may have same name as the culinary hub (TBC)
    • Our existing catering company - Bay Leaf Catering www.bayleafcatering.com.au
    • Our existing corporate team cooking & cooking classes  - Urban Kitchen www.theurbankitchen.com.au
    • Our training kitchens for students to learn Commercial Cookery
    • Future launch of a kitchen incubator for food start up businesses

    Currently the venue alone is called 64 Sutton but we do not want to continue with this name as the address is not only the venue but many other businesses in the building as well.  Also we do not believe it has any connotation to being a culinary hub.  Here is a link to the venue and our new catering kitchen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3agCemAQ6ZA

    In thinking of the name we need to ensure that it will be the name of the venue which will still be promoted to host non-food events ie it needs to be name that is relevant for a wedding or a corporate dinner.

    Some examples of names we have liked from others include

    - Epicurean

    - Raw Materials

    - Wandering Cooks

    - Union Kitchen (less so for weddings)

    - The Assembly

    As we are a collaboration venue we feel having a tagline such as cook, create, collaborate may work well with a main company name
