We love a private dining room. It’s such a treat to dine in your own exclusive space, with your select group of guests. Hosting an event in an intimate private room is a great way to make a special occasion memorable and you should know, private dining rooms aren’t necessarily stuffy rooms reserved just for fine dining. There are plenty of uber cool private dining options in Sydney, including at some of our favourite spots around town.
Check out our list of the best private dining rooms in Sydney, in no particular order.
