Oceanic Ballroom Sydney Function Venue
The spectacular Oceanic Ballroom is our largest and most popular venue for meetings, functions and events. It is located on the ground floor and just across the Studio. The hotel’s new bookable shared workspace can be used for impromptu meetings, workshops or private networking dinner for groups.
If you’re looking for a stylish yet comfortable space to book for an event which caters to a larger number of delegates, such as fundraisers, seminars, cocktail parties, office Christmas parties or other corporate functions, the Oceanic Ballroom is the best choice.
The 360-square metre ballroom offers up a pre-function and registration area, where delegates can network and mingle before the event. Private restrooms are also available for the exclusive use of guests and attendees. The spacious ballroom has no pillars and may be booked as a single venue. It can also be converted into two smaller rooms, The Oceanic East and Oceanic West, to accommodate smaller functions and gatherings if needed.
This Sydney function venue is equipped with the latest audio-visual systems, along with optional theming and staging services. Our professional event team will guide you through the entire planning process, helping to ensure your event enjoys seamless and successful execution.
