The Vestibule opened in 1880 as Sydney’s first town hall before the completion of the Centennial Hall some nineteen years later. High above the elegant interior is a beautiful elliptical dome featuring some of the earliest examples of Australian stained glass and from which is suspended a spectacular crystal chandelier.

The Vestibule can accommodate up to 200 people for a party, reception, exhibition, launch or special occasion. It is used primarily as the location for registration or pre-dinner drinks for events being held in the Centennial Hall.
