ABOUT The Ugly Duckling
Small Function Venues

The Ugly Duckling is a contemporary cocktail and wine bar in the heart of Richmond.

Designed to reflect a high-end residential living space, The Ugly Duckling is intimate yet sophisticated, with a light-filled seating area at the rear and a moody, monolithic bar upon entrance.

Daytime Lunch


The Ugly Duckling can host long sit-down lunch events for groups of 20 to 45 guests. This informal and relaxed style lunch is perfect for birthdays, corporate events, engagements, hens parties, christenings or any small private function. Lunch includes a Mediterranean banquet feast, drinks and exclusive venue hire for 4 hours.

Afternoon Drinks


Afternoon drinks events are perfect for those that don’t quite want a standard lunch or dinner celebration. The Ugly Duckling can host your drinks with a pay-as-you-go option, or with your own tailored drinks package for groups of 25 to 80 guests. Optional food is also available for their extensive catering menu including grazing selections or hot and cold platters.

Evening Cocktails


The beautiful atrium can accommodate bookings of up to 55 guests, or, why not go all out and book the entire venue (both front bar and atrium) for an event you and your guests will never forget. The entire venue can accommodate up to 80 guests and the front bar is best suited for groups of 15-20 guests.
