Madame Shanghai offers an eclectic Oriental décor that transports guests to the Shanghai of the 1930’s in the heart of Sydney’s CBD. The Chinoiserie décor combines timeless design with a playful colour palette of malachite, blues and pinks. The soft furnishings and carpeted dining area are perfect for private meetings or intimate gatherings.

Overlooking Hyde Park and College Street, Madame is ideally located to escape the modern glare of the CBD’s steel and glass. The venue is a purpose-built with a diversity unmatched and its own private terrace and bar perfect for pre arrival drinks.

With the main dining room capable of hosting up to 50 guests for a sit-down banquet, Madame Shanghai is perfect for your next function or celebration. With malachite green features and slightly unusual eastern focal points, you’ll forget you’re in the middle of Sydney – unless you don’t want to. With gigantic bi-fold windows, let the outside into our versatile space. If you’ve got a larger group, the venue welcomes exclusive hire for the whole venue. Seating up to 70 guests, the open terrace is a great place to start for pre or post cocktail hour and networking.

Boardrooms tend to be a little dull, particularly if the purpose was to invigorate creativity, passion and flare. Madame Shanghai is perfect for your next meeting or conference. Their breakfast platters have a unique twist and our baos are to die for with a substantial selection to choose from. Designed to share, the offering encourages interaction in a relaxed environment with professional and discrete service. Leave the audio/visual to them and greet your guests with a custom welcome sign and easel. Work doesn’t need to be stressful!

From live food stations with sizzling prawns, to shared banquets or more classic set menus, Madame Shanghai is the right style for whatever you need. Choose from a set 2 course or 3 course for a more formal occasion, or choose our set 10 course tasting menu perfect for that shared banquet. Or speak to the talented team to tailor your own special banquet to suit your needs. The team are happy to cater for any dietaries.

The ever popular fully customisable fortune cookies are a great parting treat for your guests – or individually boxed macarons really step it up a notch. Whether it be chocolate fountains or wedding cakes, you can rest assured the pastry kitchen has got you covered as well.

With the luxury Pullman Hotel a corner away, you’ll really be able to celebrate in style. If it’s making the most of the bartenders’ skills or continuing the festivities on the Pullman’s rooftop – your guests needn’t travel far. Conference guests may want to escape the walls of a hotel and restaurant guests can’t wait for somewhere opulent to rest. It’s a match that rivals our food and wine pairings
