The Lounge is an intimate private area that adjoins Hugo's on Level 1.

A comfortable function space, usually furnished with couches that can be tailored to meet your needs. 
The Lounge has a small balcony affording a view of Blair St up to Courtenay Place. This space is perfect for formal dining or a social function. The lounge can hold 80 patrons standing, or 40 for dinner. It is perhaps the most private of our function spaces, and is ideal if you want to have a function on Courtenay Place, without necessarily having to feel like you are.


Hugo's Bar

Hugos's encompasses the majority of Level 1 with stair access only and is our largest Function Space.

The bar on the first floor of The Establishment is the perfect function space for large dinner groups, or casual cocktail functions. Able to seat up to 100 for formal dining, with a maximum capacity of 200 for a standing function, the large wrap around balcony creates a great indoor outdoor flow. An all day relaxed dining environment separates the restaurant from the bar and nightclub downstairs, this space contains a fully stocked bar, our kitchen able to meet your catering needs and our helpful & enthusiastic  staff will ensure your evening runs smoothly.
