Sydney CBD Venue Hire Guide

Sydney Central Business District (CBD) is no doubt one of the most vibrant cities in Australia, which is why it's popular among tourists and locals alike. It is the perfect location for any function in the city. Whether you're wanting a view of Sydney Harbour or you're keen to explore some of the back streets of the CBD, there are numerous Sydney CBD function venues that cater for events of all kinds and sizes.

What to look for in a function venue?

Remember that a really good function venue is an essential thing for any event as it can make or break the entire event. A great venue and a poor one will end up making quite a large difference in your events, so it can be important that you choose wisely from the get go!

So before you book your function spaces in Sydney CBD, there are two factors you should consider. These factors include size and type.

Venue Size

The capacity of the room is something you should think about. Your function venue should be enough for the number of guests you are inviting. You wouldn't want the area to be too crowded nor do you you want the space to look too empty.

Your function venue should be able to manage your size venue requirements, whether it is for an intimate gathering or a large party with many guests.

Event Type

The event type is another important factor to look into. Depending on the theme of your event, your venue type should be able to accommodate you with these requirements.

Search for the perfect space that caters to needs. Ask yourself: What is the function for? Are you booking the place for a corporate meeting? For dinner and cocktails? For a birthday party? For a wedding?

With so many hotels, restaurants, and function venues to choose from Sydney has a huge variety of styles. The style you choose will depend on your personality or even your event theme.
