Whilst our primary purpose is as a venue for performing arts, Q’s spaces are also available for corporate or private hire. Our venues offer fantastic function settings to host end of year parties, launches or networking events. For all Lounge enquiries please contact

Lounge Bar Staff - Q Theatre



Q’s main entrance leads you straight from Queen Street into the Lounge - a fantastic starting point for a night out in the city centre.

A modern and relaxed environment perfect during the day for a team lunch, afternoon drinks or an informal presentation. The space transforms at night into a great setting for a corporate, social or private party.

Our building fuses heritage with a contemporary design - it's home to an energy and spirit that is unleashed by all who come through our doors at 305 Queen Street.

Original 1920s cornices are set-off by rich magenta walls and polished wooden floorboards. The casual leather furnishings provide ample backdrop for socialising and memorable networking occasions. It's a great location for office parties, networking events and more formal occasions such as a PR launch.
