Black and Gold manage unique Wellington conference venues and meeting rooms, providing you with the perfect space for any occasion, big or small.

Whether your guests are local or from further away, we’re passionate about delivering world class events at some of Wellington’s most unique venues. We take pride in showcasing the best of the coolest little capital in the world – with hospitality and community at the heart of what we do.

Black and Gold’s experienced managers, chefs and staff can guide and assist you with any questions you may have, giving you the ability to make the most of your function and ensuring the process of planning and hosting your event is a rewarding one.

Whether it’s a conference, team building workshop or a Christmas function, Black & Gold has the venues, expertise and experience to add value to any event.


Black and Gold provide dedicated catering for all of our venue hire spaces.

Our menus have been specifically designed to be balanced meals, while giving you as much freedom of choice as possible. We use fresh, local and seasonal produce where possible, and most dishes are made in-house by our team of dedicated chefs. To cater for as many of our guests’ requirements as possible, we offer a large number of gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian and vegan dishes.

We aim to give you the ability to offer any delegates with dietary requirements as much selection as possible.

We are always happy to tailor menus to your specific needs.


As well as venue hire when planning corporate events or a social function, we partner with other specialists to cater for all aspects of your conference, meeting, wedding, Christmas Party or other special occasion.

As a professional event management company we are part of Conventions & Incentives New Zealand (CINZ). We are also members of Hospitality NZ, the Restaurant Association (RA), and a partner of Business Events Wellington.

Our partners are some of the top New Zealand providers of audio visual equipment, event theming, entertainment, photo booths, equipment hire, bands and flowers.

Because we know how important audio visual is to any event, Black and Gold have partnered with AV Media. This Wellington-based company have installed high grade AV equipment at all our locations, which allows you to present your best.

We are proud to work out of venues that are significant within the Wellington community. Working directly with the Basin Reserve Trust, we are excited to see the Basin Reserve being used for meetings and events – generating revenue that helps to maintain the venue’s heritage and charm, and secures its future in a way that benefits the whole Wellington community.


Together with our parent organisation Kapura (formerly Wellington Hospitality Group), and through the hire of our venues and rooms, we help numerous Wellington clubs, schools and institutions provide their services to the community.

Black and Gold takes great pleasure in assisting organisations in fundraising events, member functions and celebratory dinners.
