The Venue


MAIÀ is a gentle union of the modern and the historic. Its industrial look and feel is balanced by a mix of raw and sophisticated materials, making it a chic and edgy space.

MAIÀ’s design features include a shipping crate inspired bar, original loading doors and hand etched wharf-like wooden floorboards paying homage to its absolute waterfront location. MAIÀ is a chic environment for weddings, car launches and everything in between, catering for 360 in a banquet style.

MAIÀ features a cathedral-style ceiling and expansive windows that provide a flood of natural light that contrast against a host of contemporary design features, including a mirror tiled wall. MAIÀ has a light, earthy feel complemented by a colour palette of putty, tan and black.

The dinner will commence with welcome refreshments, followed by a 3-course meal and entertainment.

With the culinary experience always top of mind, Atlantic Group menu uses the finest ingredients from around the world. From traditional styles of exotic flavors, each meal becomes an experience. The array of contemporary dishes and extensive wine lists are carefully designed to excite the diner’s curiosity and crafted to make cuisine a defining feature.
