Little Ginger is about providing solutions! If you love a good party, our motto is ‘Leave a Lasting Impression’.
We started as an online party store, way back in 2011 and the search for a warehouse as well as changes to the way people shopped, led us down a very different pathway. July 2016, we opened our custom built venue, in Williamstown North, ready to host celebrations. Initially we had a focus on children’s parties, but soon realised the venue offering appealed to a much broader Family market. There have been many special occasions celebrated along the way Bridal/Baby Showers, 1st Birthday/Christenings all the way to an 80th Birthday. The various other Special Occasions continued to be requested and we evolved to include Bespoke Weddings, becoming a venue of choice for the non-traditional couples seeking amazing service but not the reception centre feels. Our Corporate Events also began, from Fashion Shows to Product Launches, Photoshoots to VIP Nights.
Today, having experienced one of the toughest years yet the 2020 Covid Year, we again found ourselves evolving to meet the current needs of our clients and also creating a new way of business to tackle the restrictions in place with Group Gatherings. We launched our Pop Up Bar a public experience to cater for the evening needs to gather with friends and family over food and drinks. The Little Ginger Pop Up Bar is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday Evenings over Summer. Private Events are still awaiting the full release of the restrictions on table service only allowed and the need to mingle with guests the way you would normally. Events are allowed but there are guidelines to meet – the best and most up to date announcements can be found here (for they change frequently)…
Little Ginger is a CovidSafe Event Space we adhere to the guidelines supplied by the DHHS, and update our policies as required. We provide sanitiser on entry, have signs in place about numbers per area and total, have a QR code and log book for all entering our premises and all staff are trained to ensure everyone follows the guidelines. We like you want to keep everyone safe, healthy while also allowing you to enjoy time with family and friends.
Below is some information about us, for all the usual times when Covid Guidelines once again are no longer required to be met in terms of our capacity allowed and how we operate. All rates are now showing for 2021 celebration. If you are seeking a Private Event in the short term, we ask you refer to the link above on DHHS site and of course are happy to answer questions.
Weekend Bookings in 2021
The core focus on weekends daytime (evenings also available), is Private Functions. Inside you are met with a space large enough to enjoy both dining needs and plenty of room to engage with guests. Indoors has an area with exposed white beams over synthetic grass, another area of polished concrete walls / floors and 7 Mt high ceilings, making it perfect for all kinds of activities. This concrete area is often used for dancing, oversized vintage games, even a jumping castle. It really depends on what your occasion is, there are many activities you may be considering, it all comes down to how many people and what space you need for the ‘other activities’. We do have an outdoor breakout area, which is suitable for smokers or a quiet moment away from the inside activities.
The venue is available to hire 7 days. We host many other needs such as Business Events and Photoshoots, with rates reflective on access times and numbers for each need. With a blank canvas and flexible options available, you are only limited by your imagination and our capacity (guests and space needs) at anytime!
