From sophisticated private function spaces to vibrant harbourfront bars and restaurants, Britomart is the perfect central city location to host a Christmas, birthday or anniversary celebration, or create an unforgettable corporate event.

Savor Group

Between modern Japanese at Ebisu and Fukuko, or the multitude of offerings scattered through the Seafarers buildng (The Ostro Deck, The Green Room, The Matisse Room, and Tommy’s Champagne Parlour), Savor Group’s Christmas hosting is a great place to start (and quite possibly finish) searching. This year they’re offering Christmas lunch and dinner set menu packages starting at $75 per person (10+ guests), with options to add champagne, pre-dining canapés and cocktails. 

 

For Christmas functions, their private spaces can be decorated to a festive theme, or if you’d like to create a bespoke end-of-year event, they have an amazing contact book full of musicians, DJs, drag performers, comedians and musicians, as well as suppliers for photo booths, flower walls, florists and venue stylists.

Nourish Group

On Tyler St, The Chamberlain is a port-side provedore furnished with dart boards, sport screens and an impressive line-up of craft beers on tap. There are three separate spaces (the Brew Tank, Malt Alley and Hop City) that can accomodate from 32 to 56 seated, or 60-160 for standing functions, and multiple spaces can be booked together for truly grand-scale events. 

 

Next door, the fun tropical tiki-styled cocktail bar Talulah has space to host up to 60 guests in an environment that’s perfectly pitched for summer fun and good end-of-year vibes. A variety of catering menus and packages are available at both venues. Contact drinks@thechamberlain.co.nz or aloha@talulah.co.nz with enquiries.

Hipgroup

The Hipgroup trio of restaurants – Amano, Ortolana and The Store – are already taking bookings for the Christmas period in their natural-luxe spaces. For private functions, Amano’s high-ceilinged upstairs space looking out to the harbour gives complete flexibility for bespoke events. Contact events@hipgroup.co.nz with enquiries.

Generator

With two locations at Britomart – the light-filled brick and wood character spaces of Stanbeth House on Customs St East, and the luxurious expanses of the upper levels of the East Building on Britomart place – Generator offers a plethora of options for corporate Christmas functions. Both buildings feature onsite bars, and provide top-quality catering through an arrangement with Hipgroup.
