The Venue

Located in the stunning historic waterfront building known as “Shed 22”, Mac’s Function Centre was created in 2011 after transforming what was once an old brewery into 3 architecturally designed spaces. Making the most of Wellington’s stunning waterfront views, the rooms can be easily configured for small or large groups.
The Waterfront and Te Aro rooms can be combined to create one really large space which can accommodate up to 300 for a sit down dinner or up to 700 for cocktail events. All rooms have good natural light and an almost New York loft feel to them.

If you are looking for a venue with a difference then you will love the spaces we have on offer.

  • We have completed our event at Mac's Function Centre.  Please pass on my thanks to Troy (Day 1), the dinner team, and William (Day 2) and their support team for looking after us.  They did a fantastic job attending to our needs and providing us with exceptional service. I also wanted to compliment the Chef and his team for the lovely food they prepared for us over the two days. My leaders definitely left well-fed, if not a few kilo's heavier.  But wonderful cuisine - particularly today, all the squid thingys were consumed and the chicken and lamb kofta balls also.  Thanks so much!
