ABOUT The National Hotel
Bar Venues For Hire

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 Garden Parlour

The Garden Parlour is a space you can make entirely your own. Its contemporary design and private bar are just a few of the elements your guests will love. Faint murmurs from the bustling next door beer garden set the scene with large, glass sliding doors that can be opened up or closed to the elements. They also have your entertainment needs covered with our TV and microphone. The Garden Parlour’s flexible furniture arrangement make it perfect for any style of event.

The Cafe

The Café is a luxe, intimate room with a warming fireplace and a beautiful, large parquetry table. It features huge windows overlooking Victoria street. This exclusive function space is ideal for private dinners or more intimate cocktail functions. The Cafe is separated from the rest of the venue by the main bar and offers private access to the bar. The space also comes equipped with a TV screen.

The Beer Garden

The beer garden is perfect for all group bookings. Large tables line the timber deck. The scene is set with hanging lamps in amber glass bottles bolstered across the courtyard, providing a twist on the Chinese lantern. Winter phobics need not fear, the multi-seasonal courtyard has an undercover area with heating, plus a ping-pong table and view of the night sky. Canapés and a la carte menu are both available, with easy access to the main bar.

The Den

The Den is a semi-private dining room accessed from the main bar area. It’s a cosy, industrial style space featuring a fireplace and exposed brick walls. The Den is perfect for smaller gatherings and accommodates both seated dinners and cocktail functions. The space also has it’s own TV screen.
