The silly season is almost upon us and that means parties and celebrations all round. From birthday shindigs and weddings (with dancing!) to end-of-year get-togethers and festive festivities, there’s plenty of event spaces for celebrations of all sizes in the Valley. If you’ve got something to celebrate, we’ve got the perfect Valley venue for you.
If food is a pivotal part of your upcoming soiree, book a private room or space to wine and dine your guests in one of the Valley’s top restaurants.  From fine dining at Agnes (with three function spaces catering for 15 to 30 people) and Honto to Asian banquets at Golden Palace Chinese Restaurant (for up to 300 people), Ling Lings, Mr. Mista! and Vietnam House and all-rounders such as Baedeker and French bistro Les Bubbles, the Valley is your oyster for a gourmet event. Baedecker has also just opened a new private dining room, The Sunroom, an intimate and light-filled space for up to 20 guests.
Pubs & Clubs
For built-in atmosphere, a pub or club is definitely the way to go. From small groups to spaces that can host an entire workplace, the Valley has the perfect indoors or alfresco spot for corporates and family and friends alike. Enjoy a food and beverage package at the likes of Birdees, Osborne Hotel, Pig ‘N’ Whistle, The Prince Consort, The Wickham, Hotel Carrington or Hey Chica! Don’t forget to check out the newly refurbished Finn McCool’s opening in mid-November, perfect for St Patrick’s Day, everyday celebrations and casual drinks and dining.
For club or music vibes, book a private room or VIP package at Retro's Cocktail Lounge, Prohibition Brisbane, The Marquee Bar, The Met Brisbane, The Beat Megaclub, The Sound Garden or Cloudland. For bars where the drinks are top shelf, enquire about a party at Proud Henry Winebar & Ginoteca, Savile Row or Dirty Sultan. The Valley is also home to three breweries that cater for functions as well: Soapbox Beer, Stone & Wood Brewery and Valley Hops Brewing. We’ll cheers to that!
