Private Function Rooms

The Mezzanine

The Mezzanine level is located above the main bar providing spectacular water views with your own private floor space and Rum Bar access. As this is not an isolated room but an elevated level you are still able to be a part of the main bar atmosphere and entertainment.

The level is available for full or part floor hire. We can cater for events from 25 up to 250 guests. This is only one of many ways that we can create a package to suit your needs.

On the mezzanine level we have a range of catering options from canapé menus, high tea events all the way through to sit down dinners.

For hire of the Mezzanine level there is a minimum spend in place and some functions may have a hire fee applied.

The Harbour Room

On the Deck, we have a private glass room that overlooks the harbour. This is an open room set in a cocktail set up that can cater from 30-60 guests. Bar access from the Deck room is at the Main Bar. Canapé food can be served to the room or guests can purchase meals from the bistro.

Unfortunately as the room is not completely protected from the weather, if it was to rain we would relocate the function to a space available inside the venue.

The Honeysuckle Room

Located on the ground floor of our venue, this area is separated from the rest of the venue with a stunning fireplace, and room dividers that slide across to create some privacy for the area. Featuring two glass walls, this area boasts stunning water views of Newcastle Harbour. Although this area is not an enclosed room as such, this allows for the overflow of ambience and atmosphere from the rest of the venue, to ensure a vibrant feel for your function.

Guests in this area have main bar access. Canapé food can be served to the room or guests can purchase meals from the bistro. Situated inside, this area allows for a stunning waterside function without the stress of what the weather may do!
