O Bar is your perfect place to hold a family function, whether it’s for an anniversary, reunion, a landmark birthday or your intimate wedding reception. To get you started, we have combined the four main ingredients to create the perfect gathering for you!
Your first call in event planning is choosing the right venue. A hired venue allows you to enjoy the privacy and company of solely your friends and family without any un-welcome guests. When booking a Saturday night at O Bar you are guaranteed to have the whole venue exclusively to yourself. With a spacious undercover outdoor area, we can accommodate for up to 80 people no matter what weather. The added bonus is there is no venue hire fee. Simply covering the cost of a pre-arranged food and beverage package will see you having a well fed and fun evening for your whole family.
If you are organising a function with family from out of town, finding a venue that is close to your accommodation is vital for a few reasons. Some elderly guests prefer to retire to their room earlier than the party is ready to settle down. The same goes for families with young children and babies that would like to go to bed and relax. Thus, it requires you to find transport to and from their stay which can be inconvenient and expensive.
Luckily, O Bar is connected to Mantra on Edward so having a family function here will allow for any guest to simply head over next door and zip up to their room with no worries. Being in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD, also means that the out of town patrons have plenty of choice to entertain themselves during their time here before your event.
FOOD & DRINK
With venue and accommodation out of the way, your next big step is to cover food and drink. This can can be one of the most stressful parts of organising an event with little details falling down to dietary requirements, allergies and the right style of catering to suit the atmosphere of your specific event.
With us, designing the right menu is easy, our fantastic chefs ready and willing to craft a menu specifically to your requirements. O Bar is one of the best places to eat in Brisbane, and can easily cater for even the pickiest eater. We can supply anything from canapés, buffets and shared plates to spit roasts and of course more formal dining in the form of 2 or 3 course seated dinners.
By choosing the food and beverage package prior to your event allows you to have access to a bespoke menu of your choosing. This means you can customise your menu to cover all allergies and ultimately have food you know your guests will love and keep the budget under control.
