Due to the ongoing refurbishments at Pātaka, we only have our two smaller upstairs meeting rooms (Bottle Creek and Rangituhi) available for daytime hire until 1 October 2018.

Our large atrium space will continue to be available for evening hire.

Unfortunately the  Helen Smith Community Meeting Room and Performing Arts Studio will be unavailable for hire until October 2019.

Apologies for the inconvenience.


Here at Pātaka 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, Pātaka’s venues for hire offer a pleasant alternative to the company office meeting room.

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.
