How to Host a Killer Cocktail Party

You’ve got a long list of people you’ve postponed dinner plans with for the past three months and you need an excuse to wear the new dress that you paid far too much for online. You consider a girls night out on the town, but then you remember what happened last time… You lost everyone and ended up sitting on a bench in the valley at 3am… alone. So, what do you do? Pick a night, get that dress ready, send a Facebook invite around to your friends to celebrate at the best cocktail party venue in town.

Killer Cocktail Party Tip #1: The Venue

To host a killer cocktail party means to host it at a venue that your guests are going to remember. Now’s the time to stop searching for function room reviews. Whether you’re inviting a handful of friends, or 300 friends, The Pineapple Hotel offers four gorgeous function rooms, large and small, for you to make yourself comfortable. Host your cocktail party in either Baines Street, Alcove, Parkview or one of our spacious Plantation Rooms, depending on your guest list. Want to kick on? The Pineapple Hotel is just a few minutes and a small cab-fare away from some of Brisbane’s best party spots, including Eagle Street Pier and Fortitude Valley.

Killer Cocktail Party Tip #2: Menu & Drinks

You want to feed your guests, but you don’t want to feed them a tray of greasy, deep-fried hors d’oeuvres. There’s nothing worse than going to a party with bad food.
