At any age, a christening marks a significant moment in one’s life, and we believe this is worthy of an exceptional celebration! Christenings should be enjoyed by gathering family and friends and creating cherished memories to look back on.
To ensure you can fully enjoy this special occasion, we have curated a list of the top Sydney venues for christenings. These venues provide a comfortable place where you can connect with your loved ones, enjoy delicious food and drinks, and celebrate without worrying about running your event. Each venue has a team who will ensure things run smoothly while you enjoy the company of those close to you. Keep reading to discover the perfect venue to host your christening celebration.
We think that your christening should be a fanciful affair, which is why the first option on our list is The Winery in Surry Hills (Sydney’s only wine laneway in the city). This extremely eye-catching venue is perfect for christenings, and if it’s a big one, you can hire the whole venue exclusively!
For smaller events, the newly renovated Level one and freshly refurbished Mezzanine offer a more intimate feel (suitable for both seated or cocktail-style functions). Alternatively, the Garden Room is a semi-private space with a lush outdoor feel which just so happens to form a gorgeous backdrop for your photos.
The Private Dining Room is a great spot for sit-down dinners or intimate cocktail parties. Its baroque-style furniture and exposed brick walls create an environment that will truly mark this special occasion, and it has a private bar to keep your group together. The Winery is simply stunning, and with enough customisable options to suit any group size, it’s one of the finest spots in Sydney to celebrate a christening.
Celebrate your christening by the beach with Little Pearl Bar, which offers a stunning beachside location with multiple customisable spaces that cater to any event. Situated across from the golden sands of Manly Beach, it offers breathtaking ocean views, making it one of Sydney’s most picturesque seaside venues.
The Beach Bar is an expansive space featuring a private white tiled bar and a private balcony overlooking the stunning Manly Beach. The Waterside Suites offer two private balconies with unobstructed views of the beach, perfect for dinners or cocktail-style christenings.
For larger events, you can book an entire floor, incorporating two balconies with spectacular ocean views or the entire venue can be hired as well! For smaller gatherings, Northside is a private space for alfresco dining, and the Dining Room is a semi-private section with a cozy ambience for seated-style events. Little Pearl Bar is perfect for christenings of all sizes, and if you love the beach, the setting is unlike any other event venue in Sydney.
Nestled in a stunning waterfront location, Kingsleys Woolloomooloo offers a truly unforgettable experience to ensure your christening is one to remember. Known for its expansive menu, which features tender crabs, succulent steaks and magnificent wine, Kingsleys Woolloomooloo has earned a long-established reputation as a favourite for special occasions.
Kingsleys Woolloomooloo has a range of event spaces, and the entire venue is available for hire if you plan on having up to 200 guests. This would provide access to indoor and outdoor spaces, ensuring you have plenty of room to dine and socialise. For a more intimate gathering, the Private Dining Room is perfect for a sit-down meal as it can accommodate up to 24 guests for seated events (it also has breathtaking views over Sydney Harbor.)
If you’re looking for a light-filled yet intimate private function space, the Mezzanine can handle up to 76 guests and has floor-to-ceiling windows with Harbor views. You can also opt for the outdoor terrace for a large seated or cocktail-style event. Whichever option you choose, the unrivalled waterfront views of Sydney Harbor make Kingsleys a special spot for your christening celebration.
Earlier, we mentioned how Little Pearl Bar is the perfect beachside location for your christening, but it gets a second mention due to its beach suites! The Beach Suites Exclusive event option offers a premium beachfront experience like no other. Situated right on the stunning Manly Beach, this exclusive and luxurious space has two balconies that provide breathtaking views of the glistening ocean waters and the golden sands of the beach.
If you want to celebrate your christening with a high level of privacy and comfort, you and your guests will have exclusive use of the entire floor, and ample space to relax, unwind and catch up, all in complete seclusion.
With its lavish interiors and plush furnishings, Little Pearl Bar’s Beach Suites can hold up to 140 people and supplies all of the audio-visual gear needed to help make your event something special.
