The Grounds of Alexandria
Located in a former industrial precinct from the 1920s, The Grounds of Alexandria is a landmark coffee roastery, café and sustainable garden known for its abundance of fresh produce and hands-on experiences.
Opened in April 2012, the site which spans approximately an acre within the inner west city fringe suburb of Alexandria, hosts a coffee research and education facility, artisan bakery and a permaculture garden of heirloom vegetables, fragrant herbs, fresh fruit and flowers along with a small animal farm.
Remaining true to the sites heritage of organic industries, which originally included tanneries, wool washing factories and market gardens, The Grounds provides a wholesome, produce-driven menu that is fresh, fun and innovative.
The initial concept of The Grounds was born from entrepreneurial duo Ramzey Choker and Jack Hanna who had a vision to turn the then industrial concrete car park into a thriving urban sanctuary, designed as a welcoming space to bring people together.
The Grounds is built on the philosophy of creating experiences for communities through quality products, innovations and an ever-evolving vision.
Remaining true to The Grounds impeccable design aesthetic, this beautifully styled indoor garden atrium is a fresh, light and charming private entertaining space located behind The Potting Shed.
Enveloped in greenery, this romantic space is Parisian inspired with an aged nursery tone that features wooden tables and bentwood chairs against a backdrop of sage and cream wall panelling, brass finishes and green accents. This is a unique events space able to be transformed to cater for a range of events and beautiful weddings in both and day and night settings.
The Grounds onsite florist, The Grounds Florals by Silva, trades from within the Atrium space during the daytime, with beautiful florals overflowing onto the laneway.
The Grounds’ Garden is overflowing with an abundance of greenery and florals and is our largest event space consisting of three areas; the Gazebo, the Arbour and the Patio.
A crumbling brick wall covered with creeping vines and a generous scattering of fairy lights provides the perimeter for the Garden that offers both an urban sanctuary & a beautiful event space.
Adaptable to host a multitude of events from wedding celebrations to corporate parties, it is a vast space with the potential to be elegantly transformed in line with your creative vision.
The Garden includes an outdoor dance floor space, ceremony space and an alfresco bar.
The possibilities are endless, and we are here to help you develop, plan and put into place the perfect event for any occasion.
