The Grand Foyer


Serving as both the entrance vestibule to the Opera House and a lounge bar, the Grand Foyer has all the space needed to act as your registration area and also hold several exhibits. The Grand Foyer is also a perfect area to host cocktail functions or for visitors to relax.

The Opera House Cafe & Bar is located in the Grand Foyer and is open at your convenience. Our range of delectable treats, light meals and our world famous Allpress coffee have made it one of Oamaru’s favourite places to meet. The Cafe & Bar also features a great selection of New Zealand wines & boutique beers.

The Cafe & Bar is available for hire before, during and after any function at the Opera House. A full catering menu is available for morning and afternoon teas, and lunches.
