Group and event bookings – limited spots left

Bookings for staff end of year celebrations and exclusive events are filling up quickly. If you are planning an event at The Lounge in 2021, submit your enquiry now to secure a spot.

The venue encompasses a range of spaces suitable for group bookings and exclusive events. Exclusive events can be held for lunch, dinner or cocktails during and outside of business hours.

Festive takeaway hampers

If you prefer to enjoy one of UNSW’s many amazing outdoor spaces with your team instead of dining in, from 22 November to 17 December, The Lounge will offer individually packaged takeaway hampers with menu items inspired by the festive season.

For details of the hamper options and how to order, check out the ‘What’s On’ section on The Lounge website.
