Our newest location at the historic South Eveleigh precinct is a proud new chapter for The Grounds, with two gorgeous new venues.
Opened in 2022, The Eveleigh is already one of Sydney’s most sought-after wedding and event spaces. And our new dining space, The Roastery, will be an experiential cafe unlike any other, being a love letter to coffee, the art of roasting, and a place to connect, spark great ideas and foster innovation.
DINE, CREATE, CONNECT
