Spectacular dinner settings and intimate cocktail functions are made easy with our unique venues, combining beautiful spaces with creative culinary solutions provided by some of the best chefs in the capital.

Embrace the heritage character and charm of The Opera House or St James Theatre, with dinner on-stage against the backdrop of an enchanting century-old theatre. Or, transport your guests to another time and place by transforming the TSB Bank Arena or TSB Bank Auditorium (Shed 6).

Make your dinner a night to remember, held in the Lion Harbourview Lounge overlooking the sparkle of night lights on Wellington harbour from the Michael Fowler Centre, or host cocktails in the wide-open Renouf Foyer — dance floor included.

Host your awards dinner or cocktail function surrounded by fine art in the contemporary spaces of the Academy Galleries.

Whether you’re wining and dining twelve or 1,200, we can provide the space and the experts to make your culinary event a success. Our catering partners will work with you to provide a custom-built menu making use of the best fresh, local, and seasonal food available.

Let's start planning your dinner or cocktail event in Wellington!
