About the function space

Established in 1902, the heritage listed Shelbourne Hotel is a superb inner city venue which stands tall on the corner of Market and Sussex streets as a grand tribute to early Federation architecture.

LinQ on level 2 boasts beautiful styling and stunning views over the iconic Darling Harbour.

Textured walls, dark carpet and leather couches create an immediately gorgeous and comfortable room which is the perfect setting for a party.

The bar is situated in the middle of the space, between a relaxed lounge area and a dance floor space with DJ booth.

Great service, delicious food made on-site, and an excellent drinks selection, will impress the most discerning guest.
