The Alfresco​

If you need a venue hire in the inner-west suitable for up to 60 people, The Alfresco is the perfect choice! This is our semi-outdoor bespoke area reserved exclusively for you and your guests, while the rest of the venue is open to the public.

The Alfresco’s spectacular design includes a projector, TV screen, multiple seating and table options, heating, fairy lights, music, and a PA if needed.

Depending on how many guests are attending, you’ll have exclusive wait staff assigned to your group, and we’re happy to arrange different table options to suit the event. Guests will need to order drinks at the bar, but the waitstaff will serve food to you and your guests.

When you choose The Alfresco, you get the perfect balance of a semi-private feel and access to the rest of Chip’s Loft at the same time.

Minimum spend applies based on the date, time, and event details.
