One Fish Two Fish | Kangaroo Point

If you’re a girl who just wants to have fun, this southside joint keeps the ’80s tunes, fresh seafood, and good times coming! 

Work with the team to organise bespoke packages suited to you, with different spaces and menus available. Hire the bar space and be in close proximity to espresso martinis on tap, relax on the back deck with champagne and oysters, or go all-out and rent the whole venue for a long lunch with a fishy set menu. Talk about the perfect catch. 

Cloudland | Fortitude Valley

Go big or go home, right?

For a grand evening in a grand venue, it’s got to be Cloudland. With seven unique spaces, a range of gourmet dining options including canapés, sit down menus, charcuterie stations, and some generous beverage packages, Cloudland is built on years of event experience and expertise. 

Za Za Ta | Fortitude Valley

You don’t have to travel far to go on a cultural adventure–Za Za Ta offers a blend of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean flavours best enjoyed in the company of your nearest and dearest. Hire out a stunning private space, order jugs and jugs of persimmon Negroni, and get your feast on.  

Bar Pacino | CBD

Nutella. Shots. If we could get married to those things, we would.

Just say the words and Bar Pacino will keep them coming, along with tasty Italian bites, Champagne, and top-notch views. 

  • One Fish Two Fish
Il Molo | Bulimba

Riverviews? Check. Gorgeous Italian fare? Check.

Il Molo makes booking your hen’s party easy, with a variety of spaces available including the deck, the laneway, or the whole venue. The hard part will be choosing how you’d like to feast, with two- and three-course menus, canapés, or rustic Italian share plates all on offer.

Ling Lings | Fortitude Valley 

Chow down on dumplings, bao and cheeseburger spring rolls till late at this neon-lit, Hong Kong-inspired party spot. Not only are the vibes impeccable, the music loud, and the food delicious, but the cocktails happen to be available by the glass, teapot, or soup bowl. 

Mr Percival’s | CBD

For a more low-key outing, nab a table at Mr Percival’s and enjoy drinks and nibbles by the water! Percy’s takes bookings for groups of eight or more, so gather the girls and get feasting on share plates and wood-fired pizzas, washed down with a spritz or five. 

Osbourne Hotel | Fortitude Valley

The Glasshouse function room at The Osbourne is practically made for a hen’s night. You’ll feel like you’re in your own little oasis in the middle of the Valley as you sip on bubbles and nibble on delicious canapés! 

The Osbourne offers four hen’s packages, ranging from the wine & dine package, the party gal package (guilty!), a cocktail making course, and an elegant high tea.

Sixteen Antlers | CBD

How does rooftop views, cocktails, and tapas in a private booth sound? 

Make Sixteen Antlers a stop on your hen’s bar hop or get settled in for a night there, and see why this is one of our favourites! 

Cru Bar | Fortitude Valley

Whether it’s all the girls around the table for luxe Italian lunch or you’re going all-out with function space and gourmet canapés, the crew at Cru know how to wine and dine. 

Boundary Hotel | West End

Full of character and charm, The Boundary is a West End staple, and one of Brissy’s best spots for a party. Go for drinks in the picture-perfect backyard, or hire a space all to yourselves and enjoy modern Aussie bites and free-flowing booze. 

Rico | CBD

Views for days, oysters, paella and sangria–just a few of our favourite things. Rico is the Spanish/Latin riverside restaurant of our dreams, and makes for the perfect spot to celebrate.

Yeah the girls.

Keeping The G&G up to date with tasty tidbits requires a lot of lattes and espresso martinis, so we occasionally collaborate with local businesses we love, like these.
