Orso Bayside

Why you'll love Orso Bayside

  • Elegant waterfront venue on Sydney's Middle Harbour with panoramic views, private beach, and resident pelicans for memorable events.
  • Versatile spaces with flexible tables, private jetty for boat arrivals, and convenient car parking options.
  • Indulge in a culinary feast on the private balcony, enjoying sea breezes and the sound of waves.

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.
