We have a wide range of times to suit your plans. Should we not have availability at a time you are wanting, please send an email to Belinda@helmbar.com.au and she will try and accommodate you.

We offer contactless service using our Me&U beacons or you can order from the bar but keeping in mind, while you line up, guest must stand on the designated spots at least 1.5m apart.

Sitting times are set to 2 hour maximum, however if you wish to stay longer, please speak with one of our friendly staff when you arrive and we will do our best to accommodate you.
