James St Up Late Is Back With One-Night-Only Discounts And Menus
Oh, what a nightBy Dinushka Gunasekara | 24th February 2023
Late night shopping is already a busy girl’s best friend, but when it’s at Brisbane’s iconic fashion district? Now that’s worth pushing back your bedtime for sure.
James St Up Late is back for the eleventh year, taking over the street with one-night only discounts, one-off menus, purchasing perks, styling services, star-studded appearances, soirees, and in-venue DJs.
For the first time ever, you can win over $10,000 worth of prizes with the James St Spin to Win wheel. Tucked in James Lane adjacent to Sixes and Sevens and featuring prizes from James St businesses (including The Calile Hotel), all you need to do is make a minimum spend for your chance to spin. A purchase on the night will also grant you a pretty posey via the Up Late Flower Stall, and the first 1,000 shoppers at participating retailers will snag a canvas tote bag with the goods – think Slip, ROCC Naturals, Tavalon Tea, Vessel, Mirror Merch, Proper Crisps, SKINES, Go-To, and more.
So, what are we shopping? Attendees will score discounts ranging from 10%, 15%, or 20% at the likes of Assembly Label, Bassike, Bec + Bridge, By Baby, Camargue, Elka Collective, St. Agni, and Wolfe & Ordnance, plus gifts with purchases and complimentary refreshments to keep the party going. You can also fuel up with the limited-edition Gelato Messina flavour and one-night only margarita mix at LOS Bar.
Local and national faces alike will be making the trip to Fortitude Valley in celebration, including the duo behind SIR. Sophie Coote and Nikki Campbell, MCM House founder Charles Hinkfuss, Sean Venturi of Venroy, Amy Finlayson from Anine Bing in Calexico, Angelique Andronis of By Baby, and Gail Sorronda of her namesake label. Don’t want to be too far from the action? The Calile Hotel and Sage Hotel are offering Up Late rates: use code JSUL for 20% off bookings on the night at The Calile Hotel and 15% off Up Late and future stays at Sage Hotel. Send the valet!
