Function Venue Southbank

A Charming Southgate Venue

P.J's Sidebar at Southbank adjoins P.J.O'Brien's Irish Pub.

Over the years it has established a solid reputation as one of Southgate's leading function venues, being the perfect setting for corporate events (meetings, launches, seated breakfasts, lunches and dinners), cocktail parties, engagements and Christmas Events (view our 2019 Christmas Package to give you an idea of what we offer).

Offering both exclusive and semi-private hire availability with capacity for intimate gatherings for 20 to larger groups of 180, P.J's Sidebar is a generous space with flexible layout options over two sections; The Upper Lounge and the Lower Deck.

The atmosphere here is warm, relaxed and inviting with enough charm and style to leave a lasting impression on you and your guests, and our menus have been designed to cater for both cocktail-style and seated functions with a great selection of complementary beverage packages to suit most budgets.
