Due to building upgrades in the main council building, Pātaka is hosting council staff in all its meeting rooms and Performing Arts space. The Helen Smith, Bottle Creek and Rangatuhi Meeting Rooms and Performing Arts Studio will be unavailable for hire until around February 2020.

Apologies for the inconvenience.



The Spine is the main atrium which runs the length of the space between Pātaka, 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.
