Perfect Function Venue

The perfect choice for your sydney function

Spectacular views of the Sydney skyline, Darling Harbour and the iconic Harbour Bridge make this an unforgettable location for your product launch, media event or corporate function. The Sydney Lyric venues can be booked with theatre tickets to a world class show included in the package or as an independent function space.

Function packages

Our function packages are based on a one-hour pre-show function and include menu, beverages and staffing for a minimum 20 guests, unless otherwise stated. We can also customise a menu to your specifications.
