There are 2 private function rooms to consider at Shelbourne Hotel. Both provide a complete level of the venue with a private bar, bathrooms, dance floor and your choice of music. We also offer complimentary use of a cordless microphone for planned or impromptu speeches, TV or projector screen that can be used for photo slides or videos within the function room, which is always a nice way to personalise a party.

The LinQ Bar on level 2 is best for cocktail parties of up to a maximum capacity of 200 people. While the amazing Altitude Bar is a private rooftop party venue for functions of 150 to 300 people and always impresses party guests.

Our function rooms are available for Birthday celebrating 21 years or older. (We do not accept bookings for younger ages).

BAR RESERVATIONS    10-50 guests

Reservations are available in the Main Bar & Market Street Garden for informal celebrations of 10 to 50 guests with access to normal bar service and menus. This is a great casual way to celebrate with a few friends on the actual day of your birthday, or on weekend when the DJs will lead your celebrations into the early hours of the morning.

For a casual get-together where everyone buys their own food and drinks, a reservation in our bar or restaurant is the right choice. You still have the option to provide a bar tab and/or catering for your guests to share, or let them look after themselves and shout you a celebratory drink or two. This is also a popular option at lunch time for office groups who can sneak out for a fun lunch.

Reservations are free, with no hire cost, however minimum spends may apply during peak periods like Christmas time. Please also note that reservations must arrive by 5:15pm on Friday nights due to peak crowds after work.

Reservations and party packages are also available for Kandy Nightclub on Saturday nights.
