What is Dry hire?2018-02-20T12:49:15+11:00

For that fee, you have unlimited access to The Private Kitchen’s dining room and kitchen for your allocated hire time, all of our event furniture (whatever is not needed can be removed) access to a venue manager should you need anything and we can also supply all crockery, cutlery, and glassware for a fee of $5 per head. Table linen can also be ordered on your behalf and charged per item.

We have a non-negotiable service charge of 10% on the final overall event cost (including drinks on consumption/extras on the night). This is a service and event management fee and is aimed to reward quality staff employed for your event. This fee will be factored into all quotations.

Final menu and beverage choices are required 7 days prior to your event. The chefs will cater for any any strict dietary requirements where possible, if advised at this point.

Should additional dietary requirements pop up on the night, our team will do there absolute best to cater for these.

Can we make changes to the set menus?2023-10-25T16:50:24+11:00

We can adjust elements of the menus to better suit your requirements, however, the menus have been carefully written and priced by our chefs to work for larger event groups and complement the service and night as a whole.

Can you do a Cashbar?2018-02-20T15:07:10+11:00

We have basic AV available for you as part of your hire. This includes a 55 inch plasma TV with HDMI output and a basic microphone and speaker system. This is only sufficient for quick presentations/speeches and we would recommend a more professional set-up with our preferred AV supplier (AV360) for anything more extensive.

Absolutely. They will need to adhere to the same noise restrictions and will be advised of these by the Event Manager prior to the event.
