While many of us weren’t old enough to witness it (or, okay, even born then), trust us when we say that the disco-glam era of the late seventies was literally the coolest moment in time, and Studio 54 was the coolest place. Slinky sequins, glitter, big hair, and all of the dranks were the order of the day at some of the most epic parties in history.
Which is why we say start 2018 as you mean to go on: living the high life with some Studio 54-inspired sparkle. And when we say high, we mean sky-high: SkyPoint in Surfers Paradise, to be exact, AKA the very best vantage point in the GC to take in the twinkling lights of the entire coast (that conveniently match your glitter) as you farewell 2017.
At SkyPoint’s Studio 54-themed NYE soiree you can revel in free-flowing premium beer and wine, tasty canapés (including the likes of freshly shucked oysters, beef carpaccio with truffle lemon aioli, and pork belly with apple cider and elderflower glaze #drool) and super-glam OTT 70s club vibes, all with that mind-blowing 360-degree view as your backdrop.
As well as a DJ spinning bangers guaranteed to get you on the dancefloor, there will be roving Studio 54-style performers including the totally extra drag artist Miss Poodle, with her ridiculously fabulous act that incorporates burlesque, musical theatre, and pop culture.
So round up the crew, grab your tickets (bookings are essential for this one) and start planning your killer look: we’d put money on this being one legendary night.
