Wedding spaces that take the cake, literally
Queen bee of ballrooms
Are you dealing with a Big Fat Wedding guest list? Ivy ballroom is our largest sit-down wedding venue: it takes up to 400 banquet guests or up to 1000 for cocktails and canapés.
Best thing of all? The real party animals can dance their way into ivy nightclub at the end of the night.
Sydney's secret garden
Ivy Sunroom, a unique, sun-drenched space overlooking Ivy’s central atrium, has just completed a beautiful refurbishment. Rich shades of blue and handsome marble furnishings complement the backdrop of greenery which naturally enhances this elegant, light-filled interior. This serene, urban oasis is ideal for weddings, private parties and corporate events and can accommodate up to 400 guests.
Glamour all the way
With deep-blue carpets and a large Victorian window, this romantic space is bathed in natural light during the day and at night can be lit with candles.
The elegant ballroom, on level two of Establishment just a short stroll from Sydney Harbour, can host a sit-down celebration for up to 192 or cocktails for up to 400.
Once we put out the Private Function sign, Establishment’s stunning Main Bar is all yours. A pale palette highlights the Corinthian columns and soaring ceiling while the long white-marble bar makes quite the centrepiece.
Invite up to 180 for a sit-down celebration or up to 800 of your nearest and dearest for cocktails.
Level 3 contains our clever little folding exercise: two rooms, of slightly different dimensions, that can be booked separately or joined to become one space catering for up to 136 sit-down guests or up to 230 for a cocktail-style wedding.
Floor-to-ceiling windows, cream and charcoal carpet and soft leather ottomans complete the look.
The grand foodie wedding
If a cocktail sausage just won’t cut it with your guests, surprise them with the star power of Peter Doyle, founder of mod Oz cuisine.
The multi-award-winning est. kitchen elevates fine dining to another level while the photogenic setting includes Victorian pressed-metal ceilings, sentinel columns and tall windows. Seats up to 120 guests.
The intimate foodie wedding
Celebrity chef Jeremy Strode does a great spin on modern British cuisine – and his restaurant, on CBD Hotel’s level one, also exudes elegant modernity. Large gallery windows flood this open-plan fine-diner with natural light but it’s also highly romantic at night.
This is the spot for an intimate sit-down reception for up to 80 guests.
What everyone and their mother is saying about us
My husband and I are so so glad we decided to have the civil ceremony and reception there, now we're trying to think of another event just so we can have it at ivy again!”
