Function Venues


Brisbane Eats!

I have been given the task of organising a five star function. I was wondering where you thought the best venues for 200+ people in the CBD were? Restaurants I could hire out that were fabulous?

With a bar, but I think that kind of goes without saying.

Just as a side note, thanks to this community I've found some exceptionally good places to eat and I just wanted to say thank you!

Hmmm...what for? Theme of event helps tremendously (I've done 800+ppl event management before so this particular info is vital)

- Royal on the Park (hotel near Botanic Gardens)
- Cha Cha Char et al in Eagle Street Pier will do it but they all require significant notice
- try the various Hotels as well
- Cloudland in the Valley would be one place to hire out...I recall recent charity this year holding an event there that had Deltra Goodrem perform. Real pricey event too.

CBD is a hard one to be honest. Good luck :)

Not CBD, but I recommend Moda Events at Portside. Beautiful venue and wonderful food. We held our 150pp event there in July and it was great. I'm sure it would be much nicer in summer when the sun is out longer and you can stand on the verandah without freezing!

Zen Bar has pretty good food, and good cocktails. Cloudland would be amazing, but I love that place, so I'm pretty bias. I think they've just opened a new function area (or two)?

Depends who you can get to do what. All the options mentioned above are great. I was in the Turbine Hall at the Brisbane Powerhouse last Monday night for the Courier-Mail Queensland Food and Wine Guide launch and the catering was handled by Brett's Wharf -- amazing. Usually I think Bar Alto handles the catering there, and they too do amazing things.

Oooh, seconding the Powerhouse! I was looking there for our wedding, the food looks awesome, it looks like such a great function space. Pretty sure you can also hold functions at GoMA, too.
