So, you just got engaged. Congrats! If you have your sights set on an intimate celebration, we’ve got you covered. Here are the best cocktail engagement party venues in Brisbane. From rooftop bars to a jungle oasis, you’ll certainly be celebrating in style.
Fiume Rooftop Bar
Fiume sits pretty on top of Crystalbrook Vincent, a five-star sustainable hotel at Howard Smith Wharves. If you’re looking for a venue with sweeping Brisbane River and Story Bridge views, Fiume Rooftop Bar is the place for you. Fitted with a pool, you wouldn’t be remiss to think you’ve been transported to an LA resort rooftop.
Let’s discuss the food and drink you can enjoy at this enviable location. Firstly, Fiume has a killer signature cocktail list where presentation is part of the fun (is your Insta feed ready?). They also have a vast selection of craft beers and liqueurs straight from Tamborine Mountain Distillery. Complement your sips with contemporary Aussie cuisine or gorgeous grazing boards.
You’ll find the urban oasis that is Southside Restaurant in the heart of Fish Lane. There are six stunning event spaces to choose from over three levels: Town Square Plaza, Kiki Kiosk, and four other private dining rooms. They range from fitting 24 people seated to 120 people standing. They say Kiki Kiosk is the definition of a hidden jungle oasis you’d find in New York City, with hundreds of plants, custom furniture, eclectic cocktails and funky tunes soundtracking your event.
Southside Restaurant is known for its contemporary East-Asian cuisine paired with only the best Australian wines. Think duck ragu, shared dishes like Hainanese chicken, dim sum additions such as truffle prawn toast and the quintessential raw bar.
The Calile Hotel
You may have been living under a rock if The Calile Hotel’s aesthetically-pleasing surroundings haven’t graced your social media. Like its counterparts, it has several event spaces available, including Grand Rooms and Drawing Rooms like an English countryside estate. One of the best cocktail engagement party venues in Brisbane, the Terrace is a private balcony with gold-mirrored ceilings.
We need to take a moment to appreciate the food though. Choose from canape packages, a grazing table, a sashimi bar, a raw bar, an oyster bar, a bao station, a fiesta station, a Mediterranean station, a mini burger bar, a BBQ station, a carving station, and a dessert station. No, I’m not joking. An event at The Calile Hotel is sure to be unforgettable.
