Another great option when holding an event in the Hunter is Harrigan's Irish Pub. Harrigan's has become an icon in the Hunter Valley and no trip to the Hunter Valley is complete without experiencing a little Irish charm. The defining feature of Harrigan's is its fun-loving friendly atmosphere or 'craic' as the Irish call it. As such Harrigan's offers a series of special themed nights including James Bond Casino Nights, Poker in the Vines, Moulin Rouge, Beach Parties, Mexican Nights, as well as All Things Irish.

These nights include theming of the event location, tailor made menus based on the chosen theme, appropriate music, DJ or live band, movie screenings to create the atmosphere, special performers or guests to set the mood, and appropriate dress for all delegates either a gift to be given on the night such as Hawaiian leis, Mexican hats, or formal attire which can be specified in the themed invitation we will create for you to send out to all of your delegates.

Harrigan's theme nights are developing a reputation for being the best part of any conference. So whether you are in the Hunter Valley for a more formal conference but looking for a light-hearted team building experience Harrigan's can provide the perfect venue. The Sports Bar has a warm and intimate feel perfect for dancing and disco nights. The Deck and Terrace areas are both outdoor and undercover and take advantage of the stunning views of the surrounding Brokenback Mountains and vineyards.

We understand that we are an extension of your business and so must help you meet your objectives. If you require some new ideas, we can design a special event ensuring your delegates experience something truly amazing that's unforgettable.
