Here’s just five reasons why you should consider the hotel for your next event…

1. Spectacular spaces

Unforgettable events are a signature of Shangri-La Sydney and whatever the event, with no less than 25 venues to choose from, we have a space to suit your needs.

Altitude Restaurant on level 36 takes dining experiences to new heights. Nowhere else in Sydney will you find such an award-winning restaurant hovering high above Sydney Harbour. With sustainability as its guiding principle, Altitude’s culinary vision is focused on seasonal cuisine using fresh, local ingredients.

Blu Bar on 36, one of Sydney’s most iconic cocktail bars, boasts uninterrupted views across everything that makes Sydney, well, Sydney. It’s the ideal spot for impressing meeting and incentive groups.

The Grand Ballroom (below), which boasts Venetian chandeliers, exquisite decor and showcases a fine art collection, can host up to 500 for a banquet, 800 theatre-style or 850 for a reception. It is also equipped with state-of-the-art video conferencing services and high-speed wi-fi.

The Heritage Room is a weather-proofed courtyard nestled amid heritage-listed cottages, which is ideal for hosting drinks receptions and hospitality during conferences for up to 150 guests, while the Bradfield Lounge and Harlequin Room are well-equipped, stylish spaces for smaller meetings and gatherings for up to 90 and 60 people respectively.

Or make the most of Sydney’s blue skies at the Lobby Lounge terrace, a lush sun-kissed landscaped outdoor space during that day that transforms into a sophisticated spot for sundowners and evening celebrations.

2. Exciting experiences

Shangri-La Sydney can help build a tailored programme for your team to experience authentic Australian culture and incorporate unique activities that will put a twist on the common meeting or event package.

The local Rocks district is a great place to immerse yourself in Australian culture and connect with the local community to learn about Aboriginal art, history and the local environment. A variety of experiences can be arranged for you, including a visit to the hotel’s beehive collection and organic herb garden, private talk and organic cooking tips with the Executive Chef, personalised walking tour of the Rocks or healthy takeaway snack packs to enjoy on Sydney Harbour.
