Cocktail Party Venues

Hotel Richmond is well known for spectacular cocktail style parties. Staff Christmas functions, birthday parties, hens parties, weddings and corporate networking. We are the absolute experts.

One of the biggest concerns people have when booking a cocktail function is “WILL THERE BE ENOUGH FOOD??!!” Well we say that at the Hotel Richmond, absolutely YES!!

We’re not sure why other venues don’t know this secret, but to successfully cater for a cocktail style party, the key is to have a few platters of food already out when people start to arrive. That way you avoid the rush and dive on the first platter to come out if you wait until most of the group has arrived before serving food. We also offer stunning grazing tables, which are so popular now.

Visit our function details page to see the platter and canape menu options.

For beverages we are very flexible. We have beverage package options or you can also run a bar tab on consumption. Cash bar is also an option in most of our spaces (however please note that cash bar doesn’t count towards your minimum spend – if one applies).
