The best spots to book for your EOFY celebrations

We all agree that 31 December is a guaranteed good time, but why only celebrate once a year? The end of financial year (EOFY) is the new NYE – a fabulous opportunity to raise a toast to the (financial) year that was and look ahead with optimism at the year to come.

A big year deserves a big celebration, and Northshore Brisbane is standing by – cocktail shaker in one hand, clipboard in the other – to match your needs with unique event destinations and adept party planners.

Whether you want to share the EOFY love with hundreds of clients, or thank your team of 10, there’s a venue and experience that will fill the brief at Northshore Brisbane.

RIVA Kitchen & Events

285 MacArthur Avenue, Northshore Brisbane

The stunning new RIVA has whipped off the drop sheets and bumped in lush new furnishings just in time for the EOFY party season. Sitting at the edge of Brisbane River with a breezy, open-air design, RIVA is the new go-to venue for big celebrations and intimate dinners.

Entertain up to 200 clients at a cocktail-style soiree, or 120 people at an elegant sit-down affair. The talented kitchen team prepares a modern Australian menu with Mediterranean influences, while championing local and seasonal ingredients.

Pink Flamingo

98 Bincote Street, Northshore Brisbane

Stage a corporate showstopper or leave it to expert entertainers to dazzle your guests at the glittery Pink Flamingo Spiegelclub (pictured at top). Choose your own adventure with venue hire, function options and group packages guaranteed to leave an impression.

You can take over the entire 370-seat, four-level Spiegelclub for your extravagant EOFY event, or get up close and personal in the 100-person Platinum Lounge and 80-person Gold Lounge.

Pink Flamingo’s pink, domed Outdoor Area is also a top spot to cheers the new financial year, and there are group discounts and party packages to treat your team to a show.

The Fresh Collective tempts your guests with seasonal menus spanning stand-up buffet lunches, seated breakfasts, grazing tables and decadent dinners.

Eat Street Northshore

Unsurprisingly, Brisbane’s most iconic hospitality hub offers a veritable smorgasbord of EOFY options. Make an impact and hire the entire venue, adding pyrotechnics, big bands, theming and roving entertainment for up to 3000 guests.

If you want something smaller, but no less glam, Eat Street’s RiverDeck and BoatHouse marquees are lit by chandeliers, fairy lights and lanterns, and include dedicated stages and private bars.

For an intimate and inimitable event, book one of six tricked-out shipping containers, each with unbeatable views of the city. Some of the private party rooms also include interactive dart boards to ramp up the party vibes.
