Cocktail parties

Leonda By The Yarra – a spacious and sophisticated venue for cocktails and canapes

For any occasion, from a birthday celebration, farewell party, Christmas or New Years’ celebration, cocktail parties are the perfect way to entertain and bring people together.

Accommodating up to 1,000 guests, our Ballroom is spacious and pillar-less, allowing your guests to move around and mingle comfortably. The Garden Room holds up to 275 guests and is connected to a private courtyard where your guest can have their pre-party drinks and gaze at the illuminated peppercorn trees in the evening. Both function rooms have surrounding balconies offering a magnificent view of the Yarra River while your guests enjoy their drinks and canapés.

With our professional bartenders, efficient staff and skilled planning, your cocktail party will be a sure success.
