Bitter Suite is a great place to hold a function!
Group bookings/functions are something we pride ourselves in. The venue is relaxed and lovely and has great atmosphere.
It was a great night! Part of that is thanks to you and other staff there and the venue itself. Thank you for everything and I will definitely be recommending you in the future. Thanks!

Hi Jayde,

Thanks for hosing the party! As with all parties, there’s always a bunch of people who tend to cancel at the last minute, but it was still a great evening nonetheless!

Firstly, Huge thanks to Rob, and the rest of the staff on the evening. They were always super friendly and helpful whenever we needed.

Also, a huge props to the chef – everyone loved the food. It was so refreshing to have great, tasty food that was different rather than typical spring rolls fare.

I have, and will continue to, recommend Bitter Suite for anyone’s functions – you guys made it all extremely easy and painless.

Thanks again!

Hi Jayde,

Just wanted to say a huge thanks to you and the team for the other night, Bryan had a great time and everyone was so impressed with the venue, thank you for all your help with everything organising this and please pass along our thanks to the rest of the team 🙂

Jess tells me that she and her friends had a lovely night at Bitter Suite for her Birthday.
Jess loved the table set-up and everyone loved the food and atmosphere.

Thank you very much for your efforts Jayde

My fiancé Jarrah and I had our engagement party at your venue on the 3rd April.
We just wanted to write and say Thankyou so much for all of the amazing help we received on the day (and in the lead up to organise) from Jayde, and the fantastic service of everyone at Bitter Suite.
We had an amazing day and all our guests commented on the how lovely the venue was; it really helped our celebration feel so much more special.
We’ll definitely be recommending Bitter Suite to anyone we know who is wanting to hold a function, and I’m sure we’ll be back to eat in at the Restaurant.

Thanks so much again!
