We just used this venue for my daughters wedding. We had booked a karaoke/video jukebox for the reception as a wedding gift. When I arrived, there were no microphones, however I had no time to chase this up and was quietly cranky with Gold Coast Lighting and sound. HOWEVER, I have found out that the staff of the restaurant, I believe it was their coordinator Bronte, have instructed the hire organisation to NOT leave the microphones, as they were concerned about noise levels. So when it came to speeches, one had to raise their voice very loudly. Also nobody could work out how to properly use the machine, yet apparently the same person was shown how to use it and asked, as the coordinator, to show the guests how to use it, which she did not do. I would STRONGLY suggest, if you want a hassle free venue with a more competent, co operative staff, do not use The Garlic Clove. The bride was looking forward to singing a particular song to her new husband. There were other issues with service right from the start. They were asked to switch on the air conditioning, which they didn't do. You can imagine how uncomfortable the small room we were all crammed into became.Thanks Garlic Clove, never again.
