Behind the extraordinary landmark of 238 Castlereagh Street, and nestled in the heart of Sydney’s CBD lies Beta Events. Majestic, luxurious and opulent, Beta combines architectural elegance, fantastic service and delicious Greek cuisine.
Beta is the perfect venue for bespoke wedding ceremonies and receptions featuring event spaces for both small occasions and grand celebrations.
The History of 238 Castlereagh Street
The foundation stone for this historic building was laid in 1875, by Dr Barker, the Anglican bishop of Sydney. Prior to this, the site was the location of small residences shops and businesses. The building was opened in 1877 as a Protestant Hall.
One moment of significance occurred on 30 November, 1878, when our national anthem “Advance Australia Fair”, was heard publicly for the first time during a Highland society concert held in the Hall.
The building’s most recent transformation began in 2013 when the current owners, the Hellenic Club, opening the Alpha Restaurant, followed by the Beta Bar and Gallery in 2016.
In 2021 the Club was renovated to include The Grand event space which opened in 2022.

Reviews · Beta Bar Sydney Weddings
Amazing venue, beautiful food, alongside attentive and hands on staff. My husband and I had our wedding in the Gallery room and it was simply breathtaking! A perfect space for a small, intimate wedding. Highly recommend! 10/10 —Claudia
We are so glad we chose Beta Events to host our wedding ceremony and reception. We were drawn to the interiors of the space — high ceilings, polished concrete floor, exposed brick wall and small outdoor courtyard, as well as the recent renovations. The Beta Bar staff ensured our guests were looked after and the food on the night was amazing! —Marcus
