Drawing Room

If your event calls for close and cosy, this small drawing room for hire offers warm intimacy and restrained sophistication. Nestled in the beautiful grounds of Sydney University, this small events room is the ideal space to draw in your guests to chat and connect with each other.

Stunningly Intimate

The Sydney University Drawing Room is warm and welcoming. It’s perfect for smaller functions all year round, but especially suits those cooler months. The plush surroundings are balanced by soaring ceilings, antique chandeliers, and plenty of light coming in through the French windows. Classic draping, wooden panelling, and exposed beams all make for an elegant venue that’s filled with character and history – the ideal drawing room if you’re looking for more of an experience than an event.
