Tramway Restaurant – perfect for small groups, the Tramway Restaurant offers a curated dining experience for you to spoil your team after a busy year. The four-course menu package includes a welcome drink, canape starter, entrée, main, dessert and tea or coffee, and a wine pairing package is also available as an additional option. With 36 seats over two sections there are options to privately hire one of the two sections or to hire the whole tram. Contact our team for bookings and details.

Christchurch Tram – options abound with the Christchurch Tram. Opt for a private tram ride to show your guests around the central city, or privately hire trams to transport your group between two locations along the tram route (popular venues and hospitality spots include New Regent Street, The Terrace & Riverside Market, Christchurch Art Gallery, The Art’s Centre’s Great Hall and soon-to-open Te Pae Christchurch). Private drinks and canape functions are also available for unique pre-dining functions to add something special to your event.
