About this space

Garnet Station is a much loved local institution. World famous in Westmere for an eclectic, colourful heritage venue, cottage garden and performance space, this is a true one of a kind. Friendship, hospitality, pride and community is etched into the grain of this space that we love to share.

The tiny theatre seats 35 and is the most perfect intimate space for theatre, gigs, poetry, performance art, screenings and storytelling. It can host 50+ standing. The only limit is your imagination (and it’s tiny-ness).

Our beautiful theatre is also a perfect urban wedding venue. If you’re looking for an intimate space to celebrate your perfect day - then this hidden gem could work for you. Host your ceremony in the chapel like theatre and then enjoy some drinks in the secret garden while we transform the space for dinner and later dancing and merriment.

The hire of the space comes with stage, wifi, sound, lights, a screen, projector, trestle tables, chairs and use of our secret garden. If you're putting on a performance, then we're on hand to help with the kit.

We will work with you to provide food options that suit you - either a lavish & delicious bespoke menu can be created or you can keep it easy with grazing platters or for a big party have us fire up the pizza oven and your guests can share the fare. In the on site kitchen we use free range eggs, organic meat and local produce. We recycle, reuse, upcycle, compost, worm farm and love to have fun! We also have a licensed bar serving a carefully curated selection of NZ wine and craft beer. We make cocktails and have beer on tap. You can opt to pay upfront for a bar tab or have a cash bar for your guests.


We’re on beautiful & historic Garnet road in the sunny beach village Westmere with plenty of street parking. We love our neighbourhood and are a short walk from Western Springs Park, the village and beautiful Meola reef reserve, with views across to Te Atatu. Next door is Westmere Primary with two playgrounds that visiting children are allowed to use!
