Drinks: NOBYO drinks are not permitted at any time in accordance with licence regulations. Our full bar options can cater to any event.

Food: YES – we offer maximum flexibility because no two events are the same! We believe it’s important to serve guests the food of your choice, in the style that you envision and to work within your individual budget. Therefore, at The Loft, BYO Food/external catering is allowed. Please note a $100 surcharge applies to all catered bookings. The venue supplies trestle tables and black tablecloths included.

I want to bring in my own decor & hire items – are there any restrictions?2019-02-20T13:50:52+00:00

Yes you can!

Although we believe the venue is gorgeous “as-is”, you are more than welcome to bring additional items or decor if you wish to achieve a specific look or have a themed event. Just let us know beforehand what you have in mind so we can confirm suitability. If needed, most people invite a few friends or family members to help them setup before the event starts. Please allow enough time in your booking should this be the case. We’re happy to lend a hand wherever possible just keep in mind we may not always be able to do so.

Restrictions: No drilling, stapling, sticky tape, hanging or hammering of any kind is permitted. No damage to the walls or any of the building structure at anytime either before, during or after the event. Please note that glitter, confetti, artificial petals and any sprinkles are strictly prohibited. An additional cleaning fee of $250 will be charged upon unauthorised use of these items. Candles may be allowed pending type of event and must be contained in tall vase or votive.

Can I leave any items overnight (including third-party rentals) to be picked up the next day?2018-11-23T04:39:35+00:00

It depends.

Typically, all items used during your function should generally be removed from the venue by the end of the contracted time. However, special arrangements may be made if no event is booked the next day, or if you have a lot of hire items. A fee may apply in the event that a staff member must open the venue specifically for you, and supervise any next-day pickups. Please note the venue will not be held liable for any damage, theft, missing items etc. which are left in the venue at the end of the official contracted booking time, including overnight holds.
