We know that good times are best celebrated with a fantastic feast, so no matter what you’re planning, we’re stoked to help you find just the perfect place. Our collection contains a wide variety of Sydney spaces, from ones specialising in paddock-to-plate dinners to fine dining restaurants. With us you’re sure to find a private dining room that suits all of your needs! You might also want to read some of our tips on hiring a private dining room in Sydney below.

Not quite sure where to begin your search? We’re here to give you a helping hand. Start from our list of handy planning tips:

  • Ask for RSVPs – Decide on the estimated number of guests and send out the invites a couple of weeks before the event. This way you’ll know how many people you can expect. Getting the confirmations early in advance will help you narrow down your choice (the selection of private dining rooms in Sydney is huge!) and make all the planning much smoother. Most spaces for private dinners in Sydney are designed for groups of 10-20 people, but if you’ve invited more guests, we know dozens of large spaces, too – the choice is tremendous.
  • Buffet or plated? – If you’d like the guests to mix, mingle and try a little bit of everything, a buffet is the right way to go! On the other hand, if a calm sit-down dinner is what you’re after, it’s best to stick to plated options.
  • Decide on the ambience – Are you after an elegant, sophisticated space for a fine dining experience? We know heaps of stylish private dining rooms that are sure to impress. Keen on a laid-back, no-fuss private dining experience? Your best bet is to check Sydney’s gastropubs, serving mouth-watering pub grub at its best. Fresh prawns, rotisserie meats, gourmet burgers and nice cold pints. Delicious!
  • On a budget? – Looking for a cheap room to host your dinner? There are several ways to cut down on costs. One good practice is to look for a restaurant with a BYOB policy (remember to check if corkage fees apply, and if they do, make sure to calculate them into your budget). Another approach is to go for a semi-private dining room instead of a fully private one. The rates for these are often significantly lower.

Planning a private feast in Sydney and wondering how much it costs to hire a private dining room? We’ve got a list of answers based on our experience and platform data. Take a look!

  • Not surprisingly, most rooms available for hire in Sydney are priced with a minimum spend on food and drinks. The usual minimum spend in the Harbour City ranges between $500 and $1500. Keep in mind that you need to meet this amount with the hire hours, otherwise you might end up being charged extra!
  • In some cases, especially if you’re keen on having an external caterer, venues might be priced with a hire fee. These usually start at around $300 for smaller spaces a bit further out from the city centre, while the average hire fee for a room in Sydney is around $700.
  • Another convenient option is to go for a private dining package offer which also includes the hire fee costs. These prices usually range between $25 and $100 per guest. Many restaurants in Sydney create special menus for private dinners, so it might be a really great occasion to try something new, and great value for money at the same time!

Any questions? We’re happy to help. We’ve gathered a list of frequently asked questions below:

What if my guests have special dietary requirements?
We’ve got it all covered. Many restaurants and other venues with private dining rooms in Sydney keep this in mind, so don’t hesitate to ask if you’re going to need a vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, halal, kosher or any other kind of special menu. Sydney’s venue managers are well prepared for requests like these.

I’m planning a private dining event in Sydney and I need some inspiration to make it stand out from the crowd. Any ideas?
We know that the event location can make it or break it. There’s plenty of unique things about Sydney you can take advantage of. The city boasts an unusually high number of sunny days throughout the year – so, how about an outdoor feast? We know plenty of charming venues (such as rooftops, gardens and terraces)that are perfect for a memorable al fresco dining experience. Another brilliant idea is to book a private dining room with a stunning view. Sydney is in no shortage of these – you can choose from a wide variety of dining rooms with vistas of the Sydney Harbour.

Are there any additional costs that may not be included in the price of the private dining room?
Some venues in Sydney charge corkage fees if you bring your own alcohol. Another charge which may apply is the cakeage, also known as the fee for cutting a cake you bring from the outside. It’s always better to ask if any of these charges apply in your case, or if there’s anything else that’s not included in the venue hire price.

How can I make my event more eco-friendly?
A huge number of Sydney restaurants, pubs, hotels and other private dining venues are becoming increasingly more conscious of the environment. The first step is to focus on locally sourced ingredients. New South Wales prides itself on high-quality fresh produce, and some Sydney restaurants boast their very own on-site gardens, too! Need more ideas on how to make your private feast more sustainable? Again, don’t be afraid to talk to the venue manager. They know best on how their space works and what you can do together to make the entire event as eco-friendly as possible.
