In the canapé menu, we have some lighter and more robust options depending on the tastes of your guests and your budget. We are very flexible with the food we can offer, particularly if there is anyone with certain dietary requirements, options for younger children, or if you’re working to a certain budget. Our events team can make recommendations or help design a menu that will best suit your guests.

The set dining saves the hassle of larger groups needing our sharing tapas style explained or troubles with splitting bills later in the evening. It is a great opportunity for everyone to try a lot of a different flavours and create conversation at the table about the meals. It takes the stress away from ordering, speeds up quality of experience and service and everyone can settle in, grab a drink and know a great selection of food is coming their way. Our team will work with you to create the perfect menu to suit the likes of you and your guests.
Hosting a bar tab is available if you’d like to shout drinks for your guests. Alternatively, they can purchase their own beverages on the evening via cash/eftpos. There is further options for drinks on arrival and specific cocktail/drink requests. Please speak further about these options with our events team.
We have four beers on tap, a range of bottled beers & ciders, boutique wines, as well as basic spirits and a large back bar of premium spirits and cocktails. There is tea, coffee, non alcoholic drinks and mocktails for those not drinking or under the age of 18.
Depending on the style of event you’re hosting and what you’re celebrating, your event can be started anytime after 5pm. We are fully licensed until midnight, so your guests can continue the celebrations here until 12:30am on the evening of your event. If you would like to host a private event outside of these times, please get in touch with our team to speak further about these options.
Our venue opens at night for a la carte dinner. You have two options for your event. You can have exclusive use of the entire venue for you and your guests with a minimum spend of $4500 Friday to Sunday or $3000 Monday to Thursday. (Please note; all food and drinks pre ordered AND purchased on the evening by your guests go towards this minimum spend).
Alternatively, you are welcome to reserve some space for your guests, but you will not have exclusive use of the venue. The spaces we have available are dependant on your final numbers and ideal layout. Our team can go through these spaces with you in person if you wish to come down for a brief meeting. A la carte dinner only runs from 5:30pm to 9pm and generally most guests make their way out the venue between 8:30pm and 9:30pm, but we will be available until midnight for your group.
You are welcome to decorate our space however you like, we only ask for no confetti and that you don’t fix anything to the walls. We have some fantastic vendors that have been used in the past here at Quarterdeck that we can recommend you use though you are welcome to use outside options also.
This is all the extra bits and bobs that come along when holding your event atQuarterdeck.
- In-house music system that you can use with Apple Music, Spotify or a plug in device.
- A microphone and speaker (great for speeches)
We recommend coming down to the venue to see the space and our team can give you an idea on the layout, furniture and decorations along with photos from previous events.
The only extra fee is a compulsory security charge for private events. This is something the Marina has requested to keep patrons safe, adhering to RSA polices and protecting the marina’s clients possessions/yachts. This is a rate $412.50 (security fee) per event for the guard for a minimum of 5 hours, plus $82.50 per hour for any additional hours. The length of time the guard is necessary is at the discretion of the security company and will be finalised in advance of the event.
This charge does not count towards the required minimum spend.
