The Rocks Room is a heritage listed venue that overlooks Argyle Street. It thrives of sandstone walls, a floor to ceiling glass window, wooden pillars and floors and is simply stunning. The venue is two conjoined rooms that can facilitate a seated style function of up to 32 guests over one long table including heads or 64 over two long tables. The conjoined room is a private bar for your guests only – a perfect area to have arrival drinks and canapés. Alternatively, we can facilitate a cocktail style function over the two rooms for up to 120 guests. Given the PDR is a completely private room lends you to have presentations / speeches or your own DJ or entertainer and there is absolutely no passing restaurant trade as the location is up a very discreet stairwell. The two alternative seated styles of menus offered within this venue are from Sake Restaurant & Bar or The Cut Bar & Grill.
