Swing into the new year at GPO

  • Food & Booze
It’s time to kick up your heels and swing your New Year’s Eve plans into high gear – we’re on the final countdown to December 31! And the best place to get a little risqué before you greet 2017 with a glass of champagne in hand? Fortitude Valley’s GPO, where they’re saying Come What May to the year ahead with a sultry burlesque themed NYE party! Don your best feather boa and top hat ladies and gents, because this party is going get a little spirited. For $89pp ($99pp after Dec. 24), you’ll be treated to a four hour cocktail package from 8pm-midnight with canapés, spirits, beer, wine, champagne and soft drinks, not to mention a selection of French inspired cocktails from GPO’s signature cocktail list. Ooh la la! While you’re sipping your way to midnight, you’ll be entertained by roving burlesque performances, DJ’s and entertainment, as the glam surrounds of the bar are transformed into a Victorian Era burlesque show room. Think Moulin Rouge – only with way better food and booze. If you want to add a little VIP to the night, you can book a table in the VIP lounge for $150pp, or Nightclub booths for $100pp, where you’ll be showered with a round of shots or cocktails on arrival (both if you’re VIP!), Moët & Chandon for that midnight toast, and a private host to ensure you can enjoy the four hour package to it’s fullest, no waiting at the bar necessary. Already planning your best sequinned outfit for GPO’s Come What May New Year’s Eve party? You can grab tickets online here, or email functions@gpohotel.com.au to nab a VIP booking.

But rest assured that we only work with businesses that we think are nifty, as the sponsor for this post is!
