Welcome to Elizabeth Place

The premium, multi-functional events venue in the heart of Port Elizabeth

Conveniently placed in Pickering Street, Newton Park, the venue provides a highly flexible space, able to reinvent itself to suit our clients’ specific needs. Each event, big or small, is managed and supervised by an event co-ordinator – a skilled planner who will help you create your ideal event, manage vendors, and oversee the occasion from set-up to breakdown; ensuring that everything runs smoothly, on time and within budget.

Our venue’s versatility means we’ve hosted conferences, board meetings, presentations, product launches, training, awards ceremonies, end-of-year functions, and more for Port Elizabeth businesses. We’ve also celebrated an untold number of birthdays, engagements, weddings and other milestone events. In creating these many and varied experiences, we have built trusted relationships with the companies who partner us in providing the high quality food, décor, audio-visual equipment and entertainment we demand for an Elizabeth Place event.

Whether you’re a small group of five or a party of 200, your event is as important to us as it is to you. Each and every Elizabeth Place event is an occasion that gets the very best of us from start to finish. Give us a call before your next get together, and we’ll get it all together for you: everything you need for an event that is fresh, unique, memorable, and just perfect for you.
Client Reviews


Nedbank booked a meeting with our team this past Tuesday and then were unable to meet, due to travel restriction, but still had the platters delivered for the intended meeting. We saw on the platters that they came from Elizabeth Place and we really have to compliment your team on exceptional eats, quality and variety! By far the BEST in PE!! Please convey our message and compliments to your staff and team and especially to the chef who took so much care with all the details.

We have done this game show in five other cities already. Elizabeth Place was the 1st venue where the room was set up and ready on time, the food was set out and all other catering arrangements ready on time. This was also the 1st venue where the banqueting coordinator met us at the venue and was present when our function started. I am really impressed with the professional service given by Nicola and her team. Extremely helpful, friendly and assisting. Thank you Nicola, Ilze, Matthew, Lara and Tash-Leigh.

The venue was perfect, and the attention of your staff first class. From the moment we walked in until the time we left, we were treated like royalty. The service and food were some of the best we have experienced, and the wine no exception.

Net ’n vinnige nota aan jou en jou span by Elizabeth Place. Vanoggend se funksie vir Transnet was uitstekend en die kos ’n welkome (en baie smaaklike) variasie op wat gewoonlik tydens sulke geleenthede voorgesit word. Dit het goed gelyk, die diens was flink en die kos baie lekker. Ek het verskeie mense hoor praat oor hoe beïndruk hulle met die venue is. Mense kla graag, maar sê nooit as iets hulle beïndruk het nie. Ek dink rerig julle verdien ’n pluimpie.

Ons wil net uit die diepte van ons harte dankie sê vir al julle moeite, uitstekende diens en vriendelikheid deur al die maande.  As dit nie vir julle was nie, sou ons sprokiesdag nie mooitlik gewees het nie.  Ons mis elke oomblik daarvan en probeer om alles the onthou.  Dit was regtig baie aangenaam om saam met julle te werk.  Ons sal vir ewig dankbaar wees.

Working in an environment that does not always avail itself to the luxury of planning in advance, it is very re-assuring to have Elizabeth Place in your corner. Ilze and the team are always willing, friendly, ever so professional and reliable. I have never been left red faced, but have always been complimented on the food and presentation thereof. I will gladly recommend Elizabeth to anybody who would like to experience something that has become such a rarity…. quality service

My wedding reception was held at Elizabeth Place on 25 June 2011. It was a fairy-tale day, made all the more special by the staff at Elizabeth Place, especially Nicola, Ilze and Ansu.  The venue was beautiful and the decor was exactly as envisioned, with no help setting up or supervision from the very busy bride. The food was superb and out-of-this-world. My guests are still talking about it. Especially the cake, made specially for me by their chef, Ilze Roth. Thank you everyone for all your help and guidance (especially when I liked everything and couldn’t make up my mind!)

Lindsey Strong-Marais


I would like to thank you most sincerely for being the venue sponsor for the Business Chamber’s morning workshop session on the future of tourism in the Nelson Mandela Bay and Eastern Cape.

We appreciate your assistance and the professional manner in which you dealt with us to ensure the success of the event. A special thank you to your function coordinator for assisting our Events Team.

We look forward to the opportunity of partnering  with you again as we continue to strengthen our business relationship.
