The Champage Mezzanine at a glance:

Add an extra touch of elegance to your occasion.  Positioned in the heart of the Museum and above the Grand Foyer, the Champagne Mezzanine is the Museum’s latest addition to the suite of exceptional spaces for hire.  Celebrate with champagne here before dinner in the Grand Foyer, or choose to use the space exclusively.

You and your guests can also explore the Museum after hours, with private tours of the galleries or a performance from our Māori cultural performers. Unique gifts for your guests are available from the Museum Store.

When is the Champagne Mezzanine available?

The Champagne Mezzanine is a public space during the day, but is available for evening events 7 days a week, 364 days a year (closed Christmas day). You may set up from 5.15pm on the day of your event. We recommend that your guests arrive no earlier than 6.30pm.
The Museum must be cleared of all guests and staff by 2am, so we suggest finishing your event by midnight.

How much does it cost?

The Champagne Mezzanine venue hire fee is $1,800 (excluding GST). 

Professional cleaning, furniture removal and reinstate, and security host charges also apply and are excluded from the above price. Please contact us for further details.

Special considerations

The Champagne Mezzanine is located in close proximity to the Museum treasures.  It is for this reason white wines and champagne only may be served, and food items are tray-served cocktail style.
