Where tradition reigns supreme
This heritage space has a striking art deco aesthetic, preserved from its time as a CBD horseracing institution. A popular gathering place in its heyday, it has hosted the likes of Prime Minister Gough Whitlam and sports legend Dawn Fraser.
The lovingly restored Lower Bar features marble floors and Queensland maple timber-clad columns which accentuate the room. While many city bars capture the aesthetic of a bygone era, this location actually has the stories behind it.
Boasting an impressive bar lined with blended whiskies, cocktails and classic beers. It’s a spacious hall with luxurious leather lounges, designer fittings and an elevated ceiling. You can feel the history as soon as you enter.
Even without additional styling, the venue’s niche interior makes it an ideal location to carry through a themed event. From social to corporate functions, private celebrations and weddings. It truly is the perfect canvas for any event.
Functions in the Lower Bar are now managed by Navarra Venues, who bring over 45 years of experience in catering spectacular events.
