About the function space

Just a short stroll down Cowper Street from Broadway and Glebe Point Road but discretely tucked away, The Friend in Hand is a hidden gem.

The Upstairs Bar function room delivers a relaxed and fun evening that your gusts are sure to remember.

The warm and inviting space has a crackling fire place in winter, lounges, mood lighting, and a stage for presentations and DJs.

The two pool tables and ping pong table are great for a bit of fun on the side, or can be covered over as cake tables, gift tables and for platters and cocktails.

You also get your own male/female bathrooms and an alfresco smoking room to allow your guests to enjoy some night air in their own private breakaway space.
