Menus

We have a range of delicious menus to suit any staff event, with an array of choices from canapés to sit-down meals, buffets, and banquets.

Start with arrival platters of cheeses, Italian meats, hot smoked salmon, oysters, and fresh sushi. 

Follow with hors d'oeuvres and walk & fork options for cocktail and canapé events. To save time and stress, we also have pre-selected food packages based on popular choices.

Or you can simply serve irresistible pizza.

If you would prefer a sit down meal, choose from 2 or 3 course lunch or dinner menus, with service styles including buffet, shared plates, or individually plated.

All our menus cater to main dietary requirements—vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, and nut-free, so let your taste buds decide.

We offer a seasonally changing wine and cocktail menu, complemented by a full bar with a variety of tap beers, wines, and cocktails.

You choose the drinks for the TAB, and we create a custom menu for each event, complete with images, logos, or personalised cocktail names.

Our team is delighted to craft bespoke cocktails tailored to your event or theme. We also offer a $16 mini cocktail list, so you and your team can enjoy cocktails without the usual hefty price tag.

Drinks

VYC features elegant decor with simple decorations, and during Christmas we decorate both spaces with festive trees and decorations. 

Our event planner can arrange decorations, DJs, bands or entertainment for you, but you are also welcome to book your own and transform the space to suit your event vision. 

Below is a link to both our decorations and entertainment brochures for booking or just inspiration.
