Celebrate silly season in style at Treasury

  • Food & Booze
Say goodbye to your poker face – you’re about to launch head-first into a feeding frenzy. Sure, Christmas usually has us groaning at the thought of cramped shopping centres and fights over the best turkey meat, but Treasury has other ideas. Get smart this silly season with a wrap-up of 2017! Set on the sparkling riverside, Treasury Brisbane is inviting guests for a walk down the red carpet these holidays. With plenty of Christmas and New Year events racing this way, forget about leaving out milk and cookies for Santa – the Treasury has your wish list sorted.
Christmas Cocktail Soiree | Friday 8 December
It’s the most wonderful time for a beer. Or an espresso martini. Whatever floats your boat, really – it’s Christmas. With twinkling lights overhead and jazzy tunes all night, it’s time to party at the Treasury’s very first Christmas Cocktail Soiree. We’re talking dressy digs (no embarrassing sweaters), three hours of drinks, and dancing to a live swing band in the elegant courtyard. Price: $125pp
Christmas Buffet Lunch | Monday 25 December
We hear ‘all you can eat,’ they hear ‘challenge accepted’. Apparently Christmas wishes do come true, and they’ve arrived in the form of bottomless seafood platters, baked hams, and gingerbread houses. Ditch the tree, ‘cause with everything from Aussie barbecue favourites and classic European roasts to Asian dishes (char siu pork belly, come at us), you won’t need another gift. Price: $265pp
Christmas Dinner | Monday 25 December
You’ve been waiting all year for this (and don’t even mention the struggle of shopping for gifts) – so make Christmas dinner one to remember. At the Treasury’s award-winning Lab Restaurant and Bar, they’re dishing out modern Aussie fare for family and friends. With plates of Cone Bay barra and green pea ravioli with ricotta and lemon cream, we’re not sure if this counts as naughty or nice – but we love it. Price: From $85pp
New Year’s Eve Dinner Dance | Sunday 31 December
New year, new dance moves. Pull on those heels and strut your stuff under the stars this NYE. Held in the Treasury’s courtyard, you’ll spend the night with five spectacular courses, a live swing band, and a New Year’s countdown in The Lab. Price: $165pp
New Year’s Eve Dinner in the Lab | Sunday 31 December
Your results are back from the lab. The diagnosis? One killer New Year’s Eve. Grab the gang for an end-of-year dinner like no other in Brisbane. With incredible plates like coconut mousse with mango lime gel and pumpkin risotto with fruit spice, it’s time to end 2017 with a bang (and it’s only somewhat probably our belt unbuckling). After dinner, hang ‘round for the countdown with tunes, nibbles, and festive cocktails! Price: From $85pp There’s no betting here: perfect nights out are guaranteed. Words by Samantha Chariton
