Plastic is the latest must have accessory of Brisbane socialites... in the form of a new VIP card.

Brisbane’s movers and shakers now have access to preferential treatment and special offers as part of Brisbane’s first lifestyle VIP card, Socialite

As a tribute to Brisbane’s rapidly evolving city culture and social scene, the Socialite card helps socialites navigate the best of Brisbane with 193 special offers and perks at 136 Brisbane locations, including Stella Rossa, Oscar Oscar, The Laneway Bar, Fridays, The Press Club and Statler & Waldorf to name a few.

Flashing the stylish, thick, matte-black Socialite VIP card at participating businesses in Brisbane’s metropolitan areas can get the card owner anything from free entry, complimentary items, two-for-one deals or a percentage off a full price purchase.

Brisbane socialites have three local Brisbane boys to thank for the card. Realising their student cards wouldn’t last forever, they brainstormed the idea for a lifestyle card for young professionals and socialites. The card was originally created for their friends and has since, by popular demand, been expanded to include all of Brisbane.

Socialite co-founder Sam Bool says the demand for the card has been absolutely overwhelming, admitting in part due to Brisbane’s up and coming status.“There are a lot of great places to eat, drink, shop and play. We wanted to help people get the most out of Brisbane, by securing a heap of different perks.”

Here's a round up of the best of eat, drink, shop, play Socialite perks:

Eat at The Euro (181 Mary St, Brisbane). The Euro is the George Clooney of Brisbane restaurants – it’s effortlessly classy, very debonair and although it changes with the seasons it’s always delicious! Socialite cardholders get 15% off the lunch Monday to Friday or dinner Monday to Thursday (max. 2 persons).

Drink at Embassy Craft Beer Bar (214 Elizabeth St, Brisbane). The Embassy Craft Beer Bar does kickass craft beers. The staff know their stuff and there’s a rotating cast of sides and sliders to keep you nourished while you sample all of those great brews. Socialite cardholders get a $15 wings and Little Creatures combo.

Shop at Oscar Oscar Salons and every day will be a good hair day! Oscar Oscar equals genius stylists, killer cuts, amazing colour and Australia’s best-quality hair products. Socialite babes get 35% off all services Monday to Wednesday.

Play at The Met (256 Wickham St, Fortitude Valley). The met is one of those clubs where you can lose yourself – literally, because it’s huge. With three well-crowded dance floor, international DJs and the Brisbane’s best resident DJs it’s always a good time. There are bars on every level and an exclusive VIP area. Socialite cardholers get guest list entry Friday and Saturday nights. The card is valid until February 28, 2015 and can be purchased for $29.99 on their website, with $1 from every sale donated to Beyondblue.
