Gorgeous venue for a work Christmas party. The food and wine were excellent this year (an improvement on last year) and the serving staff were great, although our "drinks manager" tended to disappear from time to time and some people at our table had to go and look for her.

Attended an event here and this venue is just sensational. Everything about it exudes excellence and history. A group of us attended and we were not disappointed from the quality of the food, drink and friendly service. It is also worth having a close look at the architecture of this ballroom too, its just fantastic. The atmospheric lighting that lit the space took our experience to another level. Well done to all involved.

An amazing iconic venue in the heart of the city. Beautiful provenance and dates back to the 1920s and captures all the glitz and glamour of the point end of town. Excellent live band Baker boys with a wide repertoire and an excellent auctioneer rounded off the excellent food and a great result for a very worthy charity. Money well spent
