Prepare your finest feather boa and send off your twenties with a ‘20s-themed shindig. Nickel is the ideal setting for your glamorous Gatsby-esque party to celebrate your 30th birthday.
Dress: Flapper dresses and tuxedos are your best friend at a Gatsby-style ‘do. Pair your outfit with a vintage brooch or feather headband for added effect.
Food: Elegant canapes and finger food are the centrepiece to this social setting. Gather around plates of oysters and spanner crab cakes with aioli.
Beverages: Throwback to the 1920s with a round of champagne cocktails and classic martinis.
Décor: White, black, silver and gold suit a Gatsby theme well, while vintage punchbowls and champagne fountains are a sure fire way to enchant guests.

It might feel like a surprise but the festive season is just around the corner and if you’re looking for the ideal Christmas party venue, no matter who is on your list, we’ve got a stocking so stuffed with choices it’s sure to make everyone merry.
Xmas Dining at Nantucket Kitchen & Bar
If you want a classic Christmas dinner at a long table adorned with family and friends that feels just a stones throw away from Christmas in Connecticut then a private dinner at Nantucket Kitchen and Bar is sure to put the spirit into your holidays. Beautifully styled classic New England décor and a contemporary menu will be sure to delight between cracker pulls and seconds of plum pudding.
Art Deco Celebrations at Nickel Kitchen & Bar
If all you want for Christmas this year is to be surrounded by your favourite people while you share a menu of classic dishes that will take you back to your childhood then make a reservation at Nickel Kitchen & Bar. Take a long lunch with your loved ones and relax in an art deco aesthetic so warm and stylish you’d expect Bing Crosby himself to be crooning White Christmas in the corner.
Festive Breakfast at NKB Express
Christmas time can be hectic so if you want to catch up with friends but only have time for a casual breakfast then we have that covered too. Head to NKB Express with your besties for an indulgent breakfast of waffles and bagels in a chic 1940s style diner before taking the short stroll down to Indooroopilly Shopping Centre to cross off a few more names on your gift list.
CORPORATE CHRISTMAS PARTY IDEAS
Dine with Colleagues & Clients at Nickel Kitchen & Bar
Are you tired of work Christmas party ideas that end up still feeling like work? Try getting the office out to Nickel and clink glasses to the working year behind you. We have a huge selection of beverages to choose from including both classic cocktails served up the Nickel way and a range of our own creations that earn equal places on the naughty and nice lists. Nickel is a stunning Christmas party venue and a round of celebratory cocktails is the kind of hassle-free break up that allows co-workers to have fun as friends and genuinely unwind.
Christmas Conferences at Nantucket Kitchen & Bar
On the other hand, if you believe a work Christmas party is more about looking back on the work you’ve accomplished than leaving the year behind, then try booking a conference at Nantucket. The Montauk Room is a private space that’s as gorgeous as the rest of Nantucket and is capably outfitted with AV equipment that allows for presentations to impress an important client while still enjoying the best our menus have to offer.
Christmas with Colleagues at NKB Express
For those who like the idea of thanking the people they’ve worked with by lifting a glass to the work ahead but still want to keep it light and fun, lunch at NKB Express is perfect. Have a classic burger or hot dog and a couple of drinks from our licensed bar while you chat business, your favourite beach getaways or the Red Rider BB gun you got when you were ten years old.
So whatever you’re wishing for when it comes to Christmas parties in Brisbane, book a function with us to ensure all your guests are happy these holidays.
