Venue and Room Hire


"The staff were so friendly and helpful when I hired one of the rooms - the facilities and access were so perfect for our self-catered afternoon tea. The studio in the barracks building was so nice and light, spacious and airy- perfect for a summer function. It was nice to be able to spill out onto the deck and the lawns. The price was very reasonable for the room hire. Will definitely recommend this place to other people to hire!" Hannah Johanson (via facebook)

"Great venue - successful meeting held here yesterday. Great communication and helpful staff " Kelly Neighbours (via facebook)

Venue Hire

If you are looking for that special venue to hold your meetings, training, small conference or product launch we invite to consider Lake House Arts Centre.  Impress your clients, indulge your staff, friends and co-workers, and experience the unique setting of our stunning heritage buildings and grounds.  Built entirely of heart kauri in the late 1800s, and relocated to Barry’s Point Reserve in 1996 from Takapuna Beach, our vibrant arts centre has been gracefully restored.  The stunning gardens, free parking, conveniences, and accessibility to Auckland City makes Lake House Arts Centre an ideal venue for hire.

Lake House grounds comprise six different spaces including the delightful onsite Café which can be hired after hours, and can cater for morning/afternoon tea and lunch.   The Lake House grounds are also available for hire and make the loveliest setting for outdoor functions and activities. Please email or fill in the form on the right to make an enquiry.

We look forward to offering you a warm welcome to Lake House Arts.
