ABOUT Lotus The Galeries
Top Private Dining Venues

Lotus Galeries embraces traditional Chinese dining features with a full cocktail bar and lounge seating, private dining spaces, segregated areas and large capacities – they've truly got all boxes ticked in terms of what they can offer no matter the occasion. Sit square, sit round – be right amongst the action of the open kitchen across from talented dumpling chefs. The live seafood tanks are home to a variety of different luxe options and they're always open to custom orders!

Lotus Galeries’ menu is a rich tapestry of new world Shanghainese with a generous nod to Cantonese cuisine, local Australian produce and modern cooking techniques. The Galeries pastry team delight guests by infusing Asian flavours with a contemporary take.

The customisable event menus allow you to make your event as extravagant, opulent or classic and simple as you need it to be. With interactive food stations to premium banquet menus and an array of canapés for cocktail events available, at Lotus Galeries they make sure they're the right fit for your occasion.

The Blue Lady Room is the largest private dining space which can cater for up to 40 guests seated for a full banquet. It’s also perfect for cocktail events with a fully closing door and massive sideboards for platters, cakes – whatever you need! If it’s corporate, leave the AV to the team. If It’s a birthday, leave the cake to them as well. No matter how extravagant or how classic you want your event to be; the team have got you covered.  If you’ve got an even larger group, they can open the door and your group can spill out by up to 70 people for a large banquet dinner or up to a 100 for a cocktail event.

Fish Bowl, with a fully closing glass door, this intimate room can seat groups of 4-8 guests whilst still be ‘connected’ to the buzz and excitement of the dining room and Galeries building.
