The Tannery
The Woolston Tannery, where pelts were once processed, is today home to an impressive shopping arcade with 65 tenants which are a diverse mix of owner-operated boutiques, from designer clothing and accessories, to bakeries and bookshops.

When retail closes at 5pm, the atrium can be totally transformed into an elegant year-round evening venue, hosting up to 350 banquet style, through to 600 cocktail style, with spectacular ambience.

With its iconic French tiled floors, mahogany shop fronts, stained glass, the bespoke iron arches and translucent roof, this 500sqm reborn industrial precinct is dotted with art nouveau furniture and French tiles, mahogany shop fronts, stained glass, the bespoke iron arches and translucent roof.

At the south end of the atrium, the Deluxe two-screen cinema opened with 54 and 32 seats.

Above the cinema space, the Metropolitan Lounge conference centre/art gallery is The Tannery’s most flexible event space, available all day every day. With its extensive west-facing deck and elaborate private staircase, in-built state-of-the-art AV systems and an automated blind system for plug-and-play entertainment and/or presentations, it offers exceptional facilities for up to 150 guests, with large panoramic windows facing the Port Hills and skylights lending gallery light to any event.

The AGA Kitchen offers a private dining space, ideal for more intimate functions, small weddings, or to celebrate a special family event for groups up to 70.

The original Cassels & Sons’ restaurant, bar and craft brewery takes bookings for parties as standard, offering another option for under 20 guests.

With 170 free car parks, additional parking facilities, and convenient shuttle and coach parking, located just ten-minutes from the CBD, the Tannery has a unique combination of atmosphere, views across the Port Hills and an architectural ambience that will ensure your event is the talk of the town.
