Take in the Sydney sky from our Terrace space

A dynamic outdoor functions area that makes the most of our leafy Surry Hills location. With its own heating and fully enclosed roof, the Terrace is furnished with an eclectic mishmash of casual lounges and high tables. This makes it ideal for mingling and schmoozing all year round, regardless of the weather. The balcony is perfect for canapé and cocktail style events, smaller parties or casual gatherings. To accommodate larger bookings, you can choose to combine the rooms through the magic of bi-fold doors. You also have the option of bringing along your digital playlist of tunes to set the mood.


Enjoy the sophistication of The Parlour & Terrace for your function

Suitable for larger functions, The Parlour features a flexible table configuration that is ideal for a sit down gathering of guests. It evokes a vibe of casual sophistication and even includes a ‘Chef’s Table’ which seats 10 and is available for table bookings or hire as a private room booking. When you book the parlour for a function or party in Surry Hills, you are also given exclusive access to our terrace area for an elegant mix of indoor and outdoor seating options.

When you book both The Terrace and The Parlour, our newly installed mobile bar can be used as an optional extra. This is your own private bar, complete with a bar tender, two draught beers on tap and wines.
