Get set to party like it’s no longer 2020!

By Astrid Taemets and Bethan Warrior | 10th December 2020

It was far from the year we had planned, so you won’t blame us for wanting to see the backend of the disaster that is 2020. Folks, the good times, they are a ‘Comin, and not a moment too soon.

So dust off your heels, put on your best party frock and grab your mates, cause we’re going to send off the year attending one helluva New Year’s Eve party.

Welcome 2021, it’s good to see you!

Blackbird Bar & Grill | Brisbane City

Brissy’s award-winning riverfront bar is one of the most coveted places to be when the countdown begins, and it’s not hard to see why! Not only do they have an awesome view of the Story Bridge, but they’re known for hosting killer events. Their NYE event features a five-hour package including unlimited champagne, cocktails, sprits, beer and wine, as well as an extensive food menu, canapes and fresh seafood by Head Chef Anthony Donaldson. You’ll be able to get down to some funky beats as well as enjoy the roving acts and live musicians. Click here for tix.

Kingsleys Brisbane | Brisbane City

Kiss goodbye to the year in style, indulging in a three-course dinner with sweeping views of the Brisbane River, where the festive atmosphere will be roaring.
