Tucked away up the stairs is a den with a difference. A bookshelf that moonlights as bar, a DJ set up on an old wooden desk and a mirror ball spinning in the later part of the evening. There is no quiet time in this Library. Perfect for gatherings of 20-80 the Library is available for events 7 days a week.

The Main Room

Located on the ground floor of the venue, The Main Room is open to the public Wednesday to Friday but available for functions and events from Saturday to Tuesday. Perfect for functions of 50-120, The Main Room combines cosy booths for eating and drinking with a big sound system for shows and dancing.

The Library was the perfect space for my party. The decor and decorations created the atmosphere I wanted...trendy, fun, happy :) The DJ I organised through Highlander, Dom, was awesome! He played the music that I love to dance to and was happy to take requests. He also stayed on longer which was appreciated as we didn’t want to stop dancing! Amy, our bartender was priceless. She remembered the drinks people were drinking, kept me aware of the tab regularly, danced and laughed along with us, and was just an all round cool chick! The food was fantastic! The opportunity to stay on longer than 1am was great, we had the best time and we’re happy to kick on at Highlander until close. Would recommend Highlander to everyone; a fantastic venue with a trendy vibe, friendly and helpful staff, delicious food, flexibility in organising my event....AMAZING!!

Hi Kate,
I would like to say thank you very much for creating such a good evening for our event. The feedback was excellent. Our guys were impressed and here is just one comment:
’I actually really liked the venue yesterday .. cute .. bit funky .. Not too big or small .. food was good and the staff were enormously friendly ..’
I’m thrilled as you have been great to deal with and so we are looking forward to holding future events at your premises. We have finally found the perfect venue!

The food and drinks were spot on, the service was amazing, the prices were great and the venue was perfect. Our clients were raving about the night for days to come and everyone had a great time. Would recommend this (and have already) for any event!

I had my 40th at Highlander and it was completely stress free. Kate and the staff were friendly, helpful and professional. Everything was transparent - on the website so there were no surprises on the night. I would hold another function at Highlander whether it’s a sophisticated cocktail affair or a thumping DJ-driven party like mine, it would be suitable for either occasion.

Dear Kate,
Thank you so much for organising my event at the Highlander Bar. It went off seamlessly, and it was such a great experience dealing with you and your team. I appreciated your efficiency and organisation, especially in making sure I had everything I needed. The bar staff were also really great, they were friendly and helpful, especially Amy!

All my guests enjoyed themselves, saying that the Highlander had a great and cosy atmosphere :) I had an awesome 21st, thanks to you guys!

Dear Kate and the Highlander crew,

Thank you so much for what was a superb evening on Saturday 26 October. From the outset, Highlander impressed. You made organising an event from interstate a total breeze, answering my many questions and accommodating of my requests.

While these may be basic principles of customer service and venue management, it is rare to find them in combination with the fun and flair with which Highlander staff conduct themselves. Your costumes and decorations were brilliant!

The food was another highlight - Each platter that came out was delicious and served in a timely fashion, and that popcorn chicken...seriously addictive. The range of beverages was superb, and your espresso martinis were spot on!

DJ Dom was a fantastic choice, receptive to requests and just the type of DJ I was after. Your security staff also rate a mention - very amicable and professional.
— Tim Owen - 30th Birthday (October 2013 )
I would definitely recommend Highlander to any of our friends and family looking to have a function or just a night out. We had such a great time, all of the staff were so friendly, helpful and welcoming to us. They treated all of our guests with the utmost care and I really couldn’t think of anything to improve on. It was the perfect night.
— Lydia Greenwood - Engagement Party (April 2013)
Every time we hold an event at Highlander, it’s an absolute pleasure. Staff and management know how to answer questions and make for a low-stress, yet delightful night. A unique mix of bar, nightclub and lounge, the venue’s interior is perfect for all occasions; the space has warmth and energy.
— Sonia Miles-Khan - MOKUMO Dance Parties
We had a fun night and Alex really enjoyed his 21st. We also got great feed back from family & friends on the venue, food and staff. I was so happy to go home at the end of the night and not have to worry about cleaning up and getting rid of drunken kids! We would definitely look at using Highlander bar again and have recommend it to a few people who have 21st coming up. You & the staff did a great job and made it a memorable & fun night.
