The National Hotel is the perfect place to celebrate an anniversary, birthday or special occasion. The venue offers four individual spaces: the outdoor dining room, the cafe, the den, and an open-air courtyard. Each room is unique in its offerings and can be tailored to suit the size and nature of your event.
The National Hotel can accommodate any affair, from an intimate corporate lunch to a lavish cocktail party for 150 guests, so whatever your requirements may be, they will customise each event to ensure it’s a reflection of your specific needs. Their approach is always flexible and they can shape floorplans and spaces as required.
The Outdoor Dining Room
The outdoor dining room is a space you can make entirely your own. Its contemporary design and exclusive bar access are just a few of the elements you and your guests will love. Faint murmurs from the bustling hotel set the scene, while the space also opens up onto the deck into the beer garden. The large glass doors encasing the space can be opened or closed to the elements and your entertainment needs are covered with use of the TV and microphone.
The Cafe space is a luxe, intimate room with a warming fireplace and long parquetry table, overlooking the quintessential Victoria Street view. This room is exclusively available and is ideal for presentations, group meetings and private dinners. The Cafe is also close to the bar for refreshments and all menu options are available. This space can be easily converted to a cocktail style event for up to 50 guests.
The courtyard/beer garden is perfect for all group bookings. Large tables line the timber deck, and the scene is set with hanging lamps in amber glass bottles bolstered across the courtyard, providing a twist on the Chinese lantern. Winterphobes need not fear, the tran-seasonal courtyard has an undercover area with heating, and there is even a ping-pong table and view of the night sky for the summer months. Canape and a-la-carte menus are available, with easy access to the main bar for beverages. Bookings of 8 – 40 are welcome with a deposit required on weekends.
