Dockside Opens Two Grand Venues


Dockside Group has officially opened their much-anticipated venues with Dockside and L’Aqua showcased in grand style in Sydney’s Darling Harbour on Tuesday evening (Aug 18).

Officially opened by Bruce Baird, Tourism & Transport Forum (TTF) Chairman, the Dockside Group’s massive multi-million refurbishment of their premier function space was unveiled to a group of approximately 650 guests representing the local business community, clients, industry and media.

The complete transformation of both Dockside and L’Aqua, inspired by the waterfront location, offers adaptable meetings space that stand apart due to size, flexibility and comfort, catering from intimate board meetings through to gala functions of over 800 guests in the Gala Ballroom of Dockside.

L’Aqua has been transformed into two exclusive private function venues, The Gold Room and the Terrace Room. The Gold Room has been renovated to celebrate all things glamorous, with gold rubbed leather and timber walls, a distinctive gilded up-lit feature wall, an antique golden octagonal ceiling featuring a stunning Swarovski Crystal Palace crystal cherry blossom chandelier. The Terrace Room has been designed to celebrate the light and stunning views of Cockle Bay.

Primarily white with Cockle Bay’s unique blend of rustic yet exciting timber framing, L’Aqua’s Terrace Room features an aqua-toned hand painted wall mural by Anita Keating and warm timber panelling.

“Guests can enjoy service with genuine hospitality and be enchanted by the innovation and five star elegance of L’Aqua , while Dockside, the fun value-for-money sibling, will delight our guests with 21st century stylish design, premium quality innovation with European AV and intelligent lighting technology and spirited can-do service,” said managing director Christopher Drivas.

All three venues offer variable set-up styles, spacious balcony breakout areas and state-of-the art audiovisual facilities, and are poised to welcome the first guests to experience the glamour and luxury in the beautifully redecorated venues.
