Event Space for Rent in the Sunshine Coast

As part of Coho Sunshine Coast, we offer event space for rent. Sunshine Kitchen is a 400sq foot VCH approved room equipped with stainless steel tables and small wares that can be rented per hour to host events. The kitchen is ideal for pop-ups, workshops, demos & dines, filming, art shows, and more!

The Sunshine Kitchen is large enough to host up to 20 guests. The newly equipped space comes with shareable small wares to allow for for hands-on community cooking classes. Interested in renting it? You don't have to be a member! (Although Coho members get a 25% discount on Sunshine Kitchen rental rates).

"We've operated Jamjar's kitchen in multiple locations over the past decade. Coho has been a breath of fresh air in the coworking space community. The facility is well equipped and very well maintained. However, the real value comes from the way the business is operated. There's a genuine drive from Andrea to truly make the space a successful hub for all involved and not simply act as a landlord. We're stoked to be part of the community."

Here to Help

Our kitchens are all managed by an on-site Commissary Manager, who will guide you through your business journey. They will be your taste tester, your cheerleader and your designated resource for how to operate your business successfully within our community. Leave the facility and appliance maintenance to us, and focus on the core of your business and what matters to your customers.
