Functions & Events


The Rooftop Sydney is an impressive setting for any occasion. Our events team can offer beautiful handmade catering, to compliment the wonderful alfresco setting. 

The Rooftop is licensed for exclusive cocktail events of up to 300 people at full capacity. However current NSW COVID-19 may restrict capacity.  


We also take small bookings for informal social celebrations and dining reservations for up to 40 people while the bar is open to the public (note minimum spends apply + during COVID restriction periods capacity and group sizes may be limited). 

For anything in between we can offer private function rooms downstairs with facilities for speeches and presentations or your choice of music and entertainment. 

Our team would love to help you celebrate.
