Boutique hotel group Ovolo Hotels has launched a new event space at Ovolo Woolloomooloo in Sydney, Australia. Located on the city's Finger Wharf, a 100-year-old wood-framed wharf in the Woolloomooloo district of the city, the hotel is the company's flagship property in Australia and recently underwent an AU$20 million renovation which saw the lobby and reception area transformed into a space that can host up to 350 guests.
"We know that not all events are created equal and accept the challenge to make every event completely different. Whether it be for work or pleasure, a memorable location creates a memorable occasion," said Joanna Hillier, conference and events sales manager at Ovolo Woolloomooloo. "There are few areas in Sydney that rival our location and the versatility of our offering," she added.
The versatile event spaces, which the hotel collectively calls The Burbs, are named after the surrounding inner-city suburbs of Sydney: "Darlo" (Darlinghurst), "Paddo" (Paddington) and "The Cross" (Kings Cross). All of the spaces have interchangeable walls which means they can be resized to cater to events of various sizes. The large "Piper Room" (Point Piper) can be combined with The Burbs to create one large 390 square meter space.
Gavin Berrecloth, Ovolo's award-winning group executive chef, has created a selection of menus to suit all occasions, from canapes and high tea to plated menus.
Packages start from AU$109.
