I spoke to Anita who runs this place today:

- We could have a room for $10 an hour as a Docklands community group
A room holding up to 15-18 is available on Thursday nights
For the Thursday room I'd have to go down and set up some tables to make sure we can fit (i am ok with this)
A larger room is available on Wednesday nights
She has to get back to me to see the latest possible close time.
Tea/coffee is included
Personally I prefer it to the pub - less liquid flying around.
It would also retain the free parking in Docklands. It does seem that space-wise Wednesday night might be better - but I can go check.
Note: this would cost $50-60 a night - I think this is pretty reasonable - $5-6 a person. I prefer this to pressure to buy games or beer somewhere.
