Facilities for hire

Here at Pataka we have several great spaces that you can hire and use as a venue for your function, workshop, event, performance, rehearsal, meeting or whatever you need it for! Set amongst a Japanese garden, Kaizen Cafe, six gallery spaces and the Porirua library, Pataka’s venues for hire offer a pleasant alternative to the company office meeting room.

This bright, modern room has a capacity of 80 seated people and 100 standing. With a small kitchen next door, or the Kaizen Cafe just opposite, plus AV equipment, digital whiteboards, a projector and a public address system available for use, the room is a user-friendly, flexible space which can be used for all manner of purposes.

This large dance studio space has a sprung floor and a wall of mirrors. There’s also a removable wall leading into a smaller room. Suitable for dance rehearsals, performances, workshops, other rehearsals, yoga, martial arts etc.


The Spine is the main atrium which runs the length of the space between Pataka, Kaizen Cafe and the Library. It’s a fantastic, light-filled area with a floor-to-ceiling glass wall along one side, looking out onto the beautiful backdrop view of a Japanese garden. The Spine can be hired for corporate functions in the evenings, and is also occasionally used for community events and performances.


The Bottle Creek is a medium-sized, intimate m
eeting room with a boardroom table, seating and a whiteboard. Ideal for smaller meetings, interviews and forums, it seats 10-12 around the table. A large window looks out over the Spine area but there are blinds for darkening the room down if needed. A projector is available on request.
