About RoomFive Private Function Venue
RoomFive is a stylish venue built for the purpose of holding events. Each part of the business has been carefully thought through and designed accordingly.
Look and Feel
The venue consists of beautiful charcoal walls and a large gold leaf 40m wall, walnut wood paneled entrance walls and manicured plastered, white ceilings and charcoal carpets throughout, accentuated by mirrored pillars and larger than life black and gold tunnel chandeliers. The furniture and reception counter, bar and sound booth finishes are white with walnut touches. The floating , interlinked 3d box decor wall is both an eye catching feature and functional as you can either just lay in candles in the boxes or promote product or branding.
RoomFive is fully equipped with all event basics from reception counter, stylish feature bar and back of house service bar, sound booth , reception area, banquet, event hall, smoking section balcony that can either be opened or closed off from the main hall, pamper station en route from the bathrooms and we have our own kitchen, fully equipped to handle any event.
Space specifications are as follows:
• Main Banquet / function hall 715m² - minus bar and sound booth leaves you with +/- 680 squares to work with
• Balcony area 60m²
• Reception are 150m² area outside the doors we can utilize for overflow on large events and finally a 340m² kitchen
There is also a delivery entrance from the basement with a lift with a two ton weight allowance that opens directly into the kitchen load in area and doors close by direct into the main hall, great for VVIP special entrance and exit into an event.
AV technical breakdown
The venue has built in all the basics your event will need with provision to accommodate any technical additions you may require. In the reception we have Vieta ceiling speakers producing beautiful ambience throughout with 4 47inch LCDs.
The TV ‘s are individually controlled allowing you to do logos on a set and then seating arrangements on the others etc. There are AV plug ins as well in front which allows the Av team to control that area specifically separate to the main venue. The main room has wall mounted Vieta Do10’s producing beautiful sound to accommodate most events unless a major layout is required. This is accompanied by a 4m screen on the gold leaf wall and the 4 x 50inch LCD’s around the venue. All cabling is built into the walls and ceiling which is linked to the sound booth.
We have two possible stage points where we have built in two detailed patch pads with numerous Mic, HD visual and lighting connections to be plugged in and controlled from the Sound booth. All these cables are built into the walls and ceiling, which cancels out the need for a snake to be laid down through your event. Each patch pad is also equipped with both 32amp 3 phase and a 16amp 3 phase connection for extra power if need be.
We are running a basic but well equipped Soundcraft EFX 12 sound desk for your use. The venue also has a wireless microphone for your use. All this is included in your venue hire.
Regular items that are not included in the venue hire but can be provided are a stage, dancefloor, DJ and sound technician. We prefer to use our sound technician and DJ and they are provided at a very competitive price but you are welcome to bring your own, but they are required to be vetted first before working at RoomFive.
Seating and eating
The venue hire includes cocktail tables and stylish white cocktail chairs or white banquet chairs and tables with a choice of a stylish black or white table cloth, matching serviettes, salt and pepper cellars, table numbers, breadbaskets, all cutlery, crockery and glassware.
The design of the venue leaves little to be decorated for your event but also provides a great palate to work with. For smaller events we have beautiful large white plinths with greens on which you can utilize accordingly for your event and the venue is also laid out with complimentary tea light candles in glass holders and encompassed with the scent of vanilla. We also provide a stylish flower arrangement service if you wish, which is an extra but competitive cost. Any extra decor or hiring we can also provide if need be, please ask our team to assist.
