About the function space

Contemporary interior design and stunning views over the iconic Darling Harbour could be the backdrop for your next function.

Boasting modern decor, lots of glossy wood, and ample party and lounge space, the 3rd level Altitude Rooftop Bar is fantastic. It is split into two cohesive areas - the bar and lounge for sipping cocktails, nibbling canapes, enjoying the view, speeches, and the like - and the fantastic dance space with disco lighting.

Add to that some large French windows overlooking the harbour, ferns and foliage scattered around and a louvred vergola roof that opens to let the gorgeous night air and moonlight in, and this is a recipe for a truly amazing party.

The superb service, delicious house-made food and stunning decor and views will impress your guests.

After your function we have a happening club vibe on 2 levels of the venue, where you are welcome to continue your party by dancing the night away.
