Named after the 1938 flying boats, the water-front space is part seaplane lounge, part luxury lounge and cocktail bar. Located right next to the Rose Bay wharf, the Empire Lounge is easily accessible to and from the CBD.

Seat yourself on the cocktail deck overlooking the harbour in Rose Bay and enjoy the fresh seafood bar, while you sip on some bubbles, and bask in the breathtaking waterfront views. The Empire Lounge guarantee that not only is there currently nothing like it in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, but there never will be.

There is a full crew of event staff that will ensure that all of the finer details of catering, wine choices, and décor are taken care of for your next function. Whether you are looking to book in a corporate function, or host your next big event, The Empire Lounge is the place to be.

They provide full in house catering, a stocked bar and an impressive wine list from around the world. They offer packages that range from corporate meetings of 10, to standing canape functions of up to 160 guests.

If you love history, don't forget to check out the museum featuring the incredible history of Rose Bay as a flying boat base from the 1930’s.
