Orso Bayside

Why you'll love Orso Bayside

  • Enjoy the panoramic views of Sydney’s Middle Harbour and across to Clontarf Beach.
  • Offering a magnificent room overlooking the water.

Orso Bayside is superbly positioned on Sydney’s Middle Harbour, adjacent to the Spit Bridge in Mosman. Elegantly appointed and with a spectacular marine panorama of sailing boats, pleasure craft and cruisers on Middle Harbour, Orso boasts an abundance of natural light through clear floor-to-ceiling glass expanses and can cater for functions of up to 250 guests.

Orso is found on the absolute waterfront, with its own beach, jetty and deck – as well as a resident family of photogenic pelicans paddling outside at most times. In keeping with its origins as a boatshed, guests can arrive at Orso by boat and tie up at Orso’s private jetty, or utilize ample car parking on either side of Spit Road.

The venue's rectangular tables allow a flexible number of guests per table to enjoy intimate conversation without missing out on the spectacular water view. Orso’s design features are muted to better reflect its special waterfront surrounds. A sea of white damask-covered tables, outdoor canvas awnings; natural carpet, sand-hued border tiles and polished timbers emphasize the scene. Lighting is deliberately soft, utilising a special sail device that nods to yacht sails and the curvilinear forms of the hulls moored in front of the function centre. The function centre at Orso is fully air-conditioned, complete with a large private balcony and jetty overlooking the beach and the water. This stunning waterfront wedding venue will provide you with the personalised service events required, whether on a wedding day or birthday.
