New Year’s Great Gatsby Cocktail Party

Now here’s a New Year’s Eve party that is sure to rival the likes of Jay Gatsby’s iconic bashes! We’re taking it all the way back to the roaring 20’s, the decade where parties were at their peak in our opinion. Guests will be able to enjoy a 1920’s themed beverage and canape package, and are encouraged to break out their best flapper and charleston-esque dance moves for the live jazz band that will be belting out the hits all night long! Luckily for you, this 1920’s party comes with breathtaking 21st century views, as Tower 1 is about a stone’s throw away from the ever-beautiful Darling Harbour. If there’s a better combination than live jazz music and stunning Sydney Harbour views, we’d like to hear it. For a night of non-stop golden era nostalgic fun, this cocktail party awaits you!

When: Monday 31st of December 2018
7pm – 1am
