We do too! It’s one of the advantages of being at the forefront of the industry however, the team at [PD] can’t be everywhere at once. If you have heard of a new venue, let us know. To keep updated with the latest news on new venues from our end, become a Member and Join Now.
[PD’S] Venues profile will indicate if BYO is accepted. So yes you can, however only if the restaurant and it’s private room has a BYO license. It’s also important prior to making your booking the venue is aware, and you receive confirmation that it’s appropriate to do so. Note: In most instances, corkage charges will apply and vary from venue to venue.
The obvious advantages are restaurants all have their own unique specialist cuisine, ranging from casual type eateries to highly awarded fine dining. It can also be the ideal environment to take your time with family and friends and enjoy some of Australia’s best chefs signature dishes, away from the crowd. These days most venues have smaller dedicated private dining rooms or semi-private spaces.
Food packages can range from A la Carte selections, set menus, degustation options and signature dishes depending on the restaurant.
Beverage packages may also be matched to cuisine, taste, region or budget. And the best part is, someone else does all the work and cleans up. You and your guests get to sit back, relax and enjoy the occasion. Click Here: to view our list of best private dining restaurants.
It’s a question often asked. In short, if the venue agrees prior to making your booking then you can. Be aware that the industry standard will charge cakage fees and you may need to sign a waiver for providing food to your guests that has not been prepared by the restaurant. In this day and age with food allergies you need to check off all the ingredients with all of your guests. In short [PD] believe the best etiquette is to leave it to the experts, as that’s what they do best
There are a number of ways in which [PD] can help you generate more business. Just be aware not every venue falls within our parameters.
