Claremont Yacht Club has function facilities able to cater for up to 200 members’ guests. The Club regularly hosts Club and private functions including cocktail parties, weddings, corporate events, Christmas parties, reunions and breakfasts. Our Clubhouse has two large function venues plus bars and lawn areas for members and guests to enjoy to relax with friends or formal events.
THE BAYVIEW BALLROOM
The spacious Bayview Room offers a classical atmosphere, formal entrance, large dance floor and an exquisite view over Freshwater Bay. With immediate access to the Members’ Bar and catering provided by our Chef from the adjoining kitchen, the Bayview can cater for up to 175 seated guests or 200 guest at a cocktail event.
THE DEEPDENE ROOM
The modern Deepdene Room on the lower level of the clubhouse has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the bay and flows seamlessly onto a sheltered deck and lawn area with an equal view. The Deepdene room also features a full bar and the capacity to seat 70 guests or host a cocktail event for 100. With the river just a few steps down and 40 metres away across a manicured lawn, this room is well connected with our marine playground
The Deepdene includes a dance floor, audio/visual capabilities and adjoining kitchen making it ideal for private parties, corporate seminars, professional development days or special dining experiences. Immediate access to the deck and lawn outside makes the Deepdene ideal for family activities.
THE MEMBERS’ BAR
The Members’ Bar at Claremont Yacht Club exudes all the character of a club tastefully evolved over 100 years. Features include the timeless bar, historic memorabilia, an open fireplace and a sweeping outlook over Freshwater Bay from an elevated position.
Our lower lawn is abuzz with activity on Sunday and Wednesday mornings when dinghy members are rigging their boats before a Sunday or mid-week sail. At other times the riverside lawn, and the elevated lawn adjacent to the Deepdene room, are a great place for kids to play while parents relax on Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Additionally, for anybody considering an ‘al fresco’ wedding, our lawns provide an ideal location with an impressive backdrop to their ceremony.
The success of your private function is crucial to us, whether it is a small casual gathering of family and friends or a formal top-of-the-range gala ball. Both of our function rooms are available, with each one offering sweeping views of Freshwater Bay, our marina and the surrounding foreshore.
