Banquet for up to 40 people.

The Card Room

Our Card Room sits at the back of our main building on the ground floor and can accommodate up to 25 people. There’s plenty of window space to provide a bright and fresh feel to the room. Blinds may also be used if you’d prefer something a little more private.

Ideal for children’s parties and smaller get-togethers.


The Loft

The Loft is a large, light and airy first floor space that sits just behind our main building, above the recording studio. Dependant on the layout, we can accommodate up to 100 people in here.

The Box

The Box is our smaller performance and studio space on the ground floor. The ‘black box’ vibe is an excellent spot for private parties, with all of the technical provisions to accommodate your party requirements. Bring in a band or a DJ, or simply plug-in and play that perfectly curated playlist you’ve been working on!

This room can accommodate up to 100 guests, dependant on the layout of the space.
