Orange Productions Limited have added a new, and third venue to their exclusive management of Orakei Bay and The Wharf – Orange. This is a major step forward for this company, in snapping up this fabulous heritage building with all mod cons near the centre of Auckland city. The Orange is a modern, architecturally and uniquely designed complex, with a classic touch of history. The renowned Orange Coronation Hall stands proudly amongst several modern spaces, which wrap around this original structure. This new building offers so many options and is extremely diverse.

Situated at 147 Newton Road, Eden Terrace in Auckland, the Orange is a multi-level, historic events and entertainment centre. This iconic building was once the city’s number one ‘party spot’ and was immortalized in the 1958 Peter Cape song, Down the Hall on Saturday Night. In its heyday in the 1940s, the dance hall was packed, with queues stretching down Newton Rd, an elegant and historical reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city, The Orange is just minutes from the CBD, and with three event spaces that can be combined and configured to your needs, there's no end to the possibilities for any event. Whether you’re hosting a corporate function, birthday bash, cocktail engagement party, wedding ceremony or reception, or staff Christmas party, their idyllic and perfectly positioned venue centre offers everything required to ensure every event is a success. The Orange professional event and wedding planning team specialise in creating and coordinating memorable and unique functions, while their passionate culinary team of experienced restaurant chefs create innovative cuisine inspired by the seasons.
