A stunning outlook & fantastic food

Outstanding location & views

The Aurora Lounge, on the second floor at Nelson Yacht Club offers unrivalled views across the Nelson Harbour to The Cut.

Whether it be club racing, learn to sail courses, wingfoiling, or just a huge container ship leaving or entering port, there is always something interesting going on on the water!

The expansive 14m x 15m lounge with large dedicated dance floor, works well for events and parties of all sizes.

Nourishing cuisine that delights

We are fortunate to have Chanté Whitehouse and the team from Nourish Catering based in the Aurora Lounge with their combination of fun, creative and inspiring catering options.

Nourish can tailor menus to suit your budget for everything from full wedding breakfasts, through to standing dinners, grazing tables and corporate events

Ask about their unique, Covid-appropriate “jarcuterie” that is similar to a grazing table, but individually portioned with all the goodies!

We recommend getting in touch early in your planning!

Wedding Ceremony & Reception

"I would like you and your team to know that you have a fantastic venue there and I hope it gets used a lot for this sort of thing.
Our wedding was held there as well as the reception and the venue was absolutely beautiful once we were all set up with the silks and tables.
The facilities were excellent and easy to use.
Thanks again for hiring the club out to us and we would not hesitate in recommending this venue to other people."

Wedding Reception

We were so happy with every aspect of booking the Aurora lounge. Having the option to book all weekend took the stress out of having tight time constraints and allowed us enough time to make the venue look exactly the way we envisioned. The lounge was very reasonably priced for the whole weekend too, and Tim was happy to meet with us a couple of times to answer questions and show us around. The communication from Tim and Chante was outstanding from start to finish, super easy and they were both happy to cater to our needs and wants. The venue itself is stunning, our guests loved the balcony access, particularly at sunset - what a view! Thank you, Tim and Chante, the whole reception was a dream, we absolutely loved it!


Business Meeting

"Thanks so much for letting us hire the lounge! I have already mentioned to two people today about the space and both were keen to hold their next meetings there. Can't beat that view!"
