Venue Description

Walk through Kittyhawk’s winding entry corridor and be transported to Paris on August 25, 1944. WWII is over. It’s Liberation Day! And what a party that would have been.

Named after the WWII fighter jets of the same name, at Kittyhawk, no detail is spared. From mechanic manual-esque menus to the deep green and brass colour scheme, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time (in the best way possible).

Kittyhawk is primarily a high volume cocktail bar, but their kitchen churns out high quality, easy to share contemporary French cuisine, thanks to executive chef, Liam O’Driscoll, who also heads up their sister venue, Big Poppa’s. From graze-able cheese plates and charcuterie boards, to steak-frites and spatchcock, there’s something to satisfy any hunger. A canapé menu is also available for functions.

There are a number of function spaces available. The Conservatory is a sun-filled room at the front of the venue – easily customised for seated or cocktail affairs. It’s semi-private and conveniently located right next to the bar, so you can quickly replenish your cocktail and get back to lazing by the French windows (which can be opened to let in the breeze). This space works well for mingling events, such as birthdays, engagements, networking functions and Christmas and EOFY parties.

For those seeking a more secluded space, The Officers' Mess is a totally exclusive room, accessible by your own private lift. You’ll have your own bar, bartender and wait staff (if required) and the room is yours to decorate and customise as you please. You can move the furniture around, or remove it completely and hire in your own. It’s your space - make it work for you!

The Officers' Mess is a very versatile space that suits a variety of functions from birthdays and engagements to corporate parties and team bonding sessions and even banquet dinners. You name it, it would probably work!

The entire Kittyhawk venue can also be hired out on Sundays and, if you combine this with The Officers' Mess, you have a capacity of 350 across two levels.
