Venues to cocktail?

By realityskin 15 April 2009 41

Some friends are looking for a venue to have a cocktail party for up to 50 people.

Outdoorsy location is preferred.

Any input ?

the OPH courtyard is pretty good, the boathouse is where we have one of our annual events, the hyatt for everything else.

for something different, try the realm.

The Bookplate cafe at the National Library is brilliant.

Minimum 55 people, i think this function will scrape in with 45ish unfortunately.

knightsbridge in braddon – if you put $1000 on the bar you get the whole thing privately for you and your guests for 4 hours on a saturday afternoon!

Yeah, an option. Hippo Bar is $1900 with $700 bar tab ( so 1200 )

Toriness- did you mean if you put on a $1000 bar tab you get the room for free on Sat arvos?
If so, The Knightsbridge deal sounds heaps better than Hippo

+1 for KB friendly staff and a great atmosphere with a good cocktail menu, no food though. Not outdoorsy at all.

I wouldn’t go to Kremlin, last time I was there the cocktail menu wasn’t great.

The sculpture gardens at the National Gallery were nice (although we were there at night and it was a wine and beer affair, not sure of cocktail quality) and I’ve heard nothing but praise for Bookplate at the library.

Do the Ginger Room at Old Parliament House do functions in the gardens there?

I second Cocktails With Flair http://cocktailswithflair.com/

I know the guys who run it, they are great cocktail barmen and will do a great job.

Plus I just saw on their website if you book before May you get the first hour free

Kremlin or HaHa bar…

You seem to be fairly well informed already realityskin. Why bother posting the question if you are going to be rude to the people who answer?

Gold ! Looks beautiful, thanks.

Rachel and her team are the best

If you’re planning on using outside caterers/cocktail people you could look at the Carillion – you can hire the insides o it – not sur about 50 people though.

NPG foyer or entrance … and they have an events room overlooking the parly triangle …

Trinity Dickson for sure, … best cocktails and staff around by far.

Parlour would come second

I had the WORST experience at The Deck – I had never experienced such terrible customer service until December last year. Whilst as part of the ‘follow up’ they told me the function area is managed by different people to the restaraunt area, the restaraunt never followed up with my refund and the functions area never got in touch about a sample menu for a function we had coming up (as promised).

Is it a cocktail party for a specific reason? Or just somewhere nice for some drinks?

A friend of mine recently went to a cocktail style wedding at the Sculpture Gardens at the National Gallery. By all reports it was lovely.
