Private Function Rooms

The Mezzanine

The Mezzanine level is located above the main bar, and is available for full or part floor hire. Both sides of the Mezzanine have private bar access.

As this is an elevated level rather than an enclosed room, you are still very much a part of the main bar atmosphere and entertainment.

The Harbour Room

Situated on the deck, our outdoor Harbour Room overlooks the stunning Newcastle Harbour. This area is completely private, separated from the main deck by a glass wall. This room also has bar access with selected products. Although there is a sail, we do relocate outdoor functions to a suitable area within the venue in case of inclement weather.

The Honeysuckle Room

Located indoors on the ground floor of the venue, the Honeysuckle Room is separated from the rest of the venue by a stunning fireplace and room dividers that slide across to create a private area for your function. Although the area is made private to your group, it is not a completely enclosed room; this allows the atmosphere and entertainment from the main bar to add to the vibrancy of your function!

Featuring two glass walls, this area boasts views of Newcastle Harbour and has bar access with selected products.
