When it comes to functions, one name that stands out is Geelong’s Sporting Globe Bar & Grill. With access to an exclusive room, state-of-the-art facilities and their function manager by your side, your special event becomes a breeze.
“We have a variety of versatile function rooms, catering for a range of events from casual birthdays to formal receptions, club presentations and corporate events,” says Marketing Manager Paige Beyer . “Ideally located in the centre of town on Ryrie St the venue is perfect for your next function. Our function manager will tailor your event to the desired style and budget. Our packages cater for sit-down dinner and cocktail events, with per head or per platter pricing. We also provide à la carte service for small groups.”
The Sporting Globe Bar & Grill realise that not every function is the same and so they offer three main function areas. ‘The Cocktail Bar’ is the largest of these, catering for up to 350 people (standing). Decked out with a large private bar, dance floor and balcony overlooking Union Street, The Cocktail Bar is perfect for large numbers or those that enjoy a little more room. Other features to this room include state-of-the-art lighting, stage area, live music equipment and two projectors.
The ‘Beer Garden’ is suited for the more casual gathering. The expansive bar opens onto a wooden deck with outdoor seating and a retractable roof, while a 3.75m2 big screen, large gas heater, pool table and 6 x 40” screens allows guests to stay warm and keep an eye on the score. Lastly, the ‘Lounge Bar’ is perfect for secluded gatherings. Situated upstairs, its private bar and smoking balcony is perfect for an intimate dinner with family or friends. And with its 2 x 40” inch screens, the Lounge Bar can also double as a presentation area.
Once you have selected your room, why not take a look at their catering. Here we once again hand it over to Paige Beyer. “The Sporting Globe offers great catering options for your function with a range of cocktail style platters or set menu options for seated events. Platters start at $39ea and feature items from our much loved restaurant menu including buffalo wings, barramundi and chip boxes and desserts. Set menus of two-courses or three-courses can be organised with our function manager.”
Room selected: check. Catering organised: check. What about them tunes? The Cocktail Bar features a stage that has hosted some first-class talent and comes fully equipped with PA system, speakers and DJ decks. They also house a modern sound system with an extensive music library, or if you prefer you can connect your own mp3 player.
There you have it. Everything you need to make your function a memorable one can be found at the Sporting Globe Bar & Grill, where their hard work means your enjoyment. Street parking is available. Fully licensed venue. For further information hit sportingglobe.com.au.
