Our upstairs space is a popular venue for book clubs, launches and poetry readings. The space is cosy, but it can happily house a maximum of 50 guests (standing). We've squeezed in 100 people (using the deck)– but 50 is much more comfortable.

Guests are encouraged to use our kitchen facilities, which include wine glasses and cutlery, tea, coffee and a fridge. As we do not charge for the use of this space, we do require that guests are self sufficient and clean up after themselves. 

Time Out closes at 9pm. Guests must leave the space as they found it by this time to enable our staff to get home. Events that will last later into the evening must be pre-arranged and attended by a representative of the Time Out team. 

Unfortunately, due to Time Out's status as a heritage site, the upstairs space is not wheelchair accessible. While our options to improve upstairs access are limited, we would love to improve the accessibility of the store as a whole and welcome your input
