About this space
Garnet Station is a much loved local institution. World famous in Westmere for their eclectic, colourful and heritage pizzeria, garden and theatre space, this is a true one of a kind. Friendship, hospitality, pride and community is etched into the grain of our beautiful space, that we love to share with our neighbourhood, artists, creatives and other wonderful humans.
The whole venue is available for private parties, weddings, celebrations and retreats - or talk to us about what you would like to use it for!

Your party will be staffed and we will work with you on the flow of the day and your catering & alcohol needs.
Wining & Dining
We will work with you to provide meal options that work for you - either a lavish & delicious bespoke menu can be created or you can keep it easy and have us fire up the pizza oven and your guests can order from our pizza menu. 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 options for kids parties, platters and much more. We also have a licensed bar serving a carefully curated selection of NZ wine and craft beer. We also make incredible cocktails. You can opt to pay upfront for a bar tab or have a cash bar for your guests.
Verity George is an experienced celebrant who would be delighted to officiate your ceremony. Please book the celebrant option at checkout to include this in your day. Verity will work with you and your partner to design a ceremony that works for you.
We’re on beautiful & historic Garnet road in the sunny beach village Westmere. 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.
