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. However under current NSW COVID-19 restrictions all events must be in a seated dining format with restricted capacity.  


We also take small bookings for informal social celebrations and dining reservations for up to 30 people while the bar is open to the public (note minimum spends may apply + during COVID restriction periods capacity and group sizes are limited). 

For anything in between we can offer private function rooms downstairs with facilities for speeches and presentations or live DJs and entertainment. 

Contact us for any occasion from Christmas parties to team drinks. Launch events to weddings, engagements or a birthday. Our team would love to help you celebrate.


The Rooftop and the entire Shelbourne Hotel is proactively CovidSafe.

Our team is making every effort to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all guests at each visit.

Please note that given the frequently changing COVID restrictions, the capacity and event information published on our website is based on standard pre-covid operations and doesn't take into account any restrictions that might apply to the dates you're interested in. For example, under the 1 person per 4sqm rule, The Rooftop has a reduced capacity of 75 people when trading as a public rooftop bar, with all guests seated at tables of no more than 10 people. 


If you're planning an event, it's best to get in touch and our events team will assist with the best available information relevant to your plans and preferred dates.
