Although New Year’s Eve is one of the best nights of the year, it comes with a fair bit to think about. Should I even attempt to straighten my hair in 35 degree heat? Do I have to wear heels? But most importantly, where should my crew and I go to have the best night?
Luckily, this year Treasury Brisbane is taking the guesswork out of where to spend NYE by hosting a bevvy of events all in one place (because why catch more Ubers than you have to on the busiest night of the year?). We totally get that you might assume the CBD is a daunting place to be on New Year’s Eve in Brisbane, but it’s time to smash those preconceived ideas, because we have four amazing reasons why you need high-tail it into the city.
1. Wine And Dine At The NYE Dinner Dance
Let's be real; it's not really New Year's Eve without food, dancing and of course, excellent drinks. If that gets you excited, then you need to check out The Treasury's beautiful brand new event, the NYE Dinner Dance, held in their beautiful courtyard (because the best kind of party is under the stars). Welcome in 2018 in style with a mouth-watering, five-course dinner and three-and-a-half hour premium bev package, including Moet & Chandon, all to the tune of a live six-piece swing band. All this for just $165pp? We kid you not, friends.
2. The Last (Glamorous) Supper At The Lab Restaurant And Bar
If you’re looking for something a little more low-key but still with a hint of luxury, then NYE at The Lab Restaurant and Bar is what you’ve been looking for. $85pp will get you a two-course delectable feast of modern Australian fare and a foot-tapping after-dinner DJ that will keep this sophiticated soiree going into the early hours of 2018.
3. Dance 2017 Out Of Your System With The Stafford Brothers At LiveWire Bar
Venture further into The Treasury and you’ll come across the LiveWire Bar, which will play host this year to Aussie legends, The Stafford Brothers. If that doesn’t get you all a-flutter we don’t know what will, because this alone is reason enough to venture into the city for NYE. You know their set will be packed with certified bangers to help you welcome the New Year on a high. Oh, and did we mention it’s free?!
4. Welcome In 2018 With FEENIXPAWL At The Kitty Bar
And finally, we all know that any NYE party isn’t complete without the perfect song to scream “HAPPY NEW YEAR” to, so we thank you, Treasury Brisbane, for letting us do so to the hip-shaking beats of FEENIXPAWL at The Kitty Bar. Welcome 2018 with this Aussie dance-god duo (and Aria winners and Grammy nominees!) that will help you start the year the right way (also free, another bonus).
Don’t just take our word for it though! See for yourself this year why you need to spend NYE in Bridsbane CBD. For more info and to avoid missing out on tickets, head to Treasury Brisbane’s event page here.
