The sweetest time of the year (we mean it literally!) in Brisbane is happening on 7 July — The International Chocolate Day. If you’re thinking of the best place to go to sink your teeth into sweet and decadent chocolates, you might want to check out the Regatta Hotel in Toowong.
The Regatta Hotel doesn’t shy away from specialty events and every year, they make sure to celebrate this particular event. Their signature Boatshed restaurant will offer a variety of chocolate desserts along with cocktails.
You can also step outside to the courtyard and feel the cool breeze as you dip fruits or marshmallows into their chocolate fondue.
All of this chocolate-y goodness will start at 4:00 p.m.
The good news? You don’t have to book at all. Just drop-by and indulge yourself in a world filled with everything chocolate. It’s every chocolate lovers’ dream!
End 2017 and welcome 2018 “in France” without leaving Brisbane! Regatta Hotel in Toowong will be hosting an elegant year-ender called Midnight in Paris NYE on 31st December starting at 8:00 p.m. and will end at exactly 12:00 a.m. just after that magical New Year’s kiss.
The hotel will be transformed. The first level will channel a Moulin Rouge theme whilst the underground Walrus Club will take you back in time to the “Annees Folles” of the 1920’s. Breathe some fresh air outside that will be revamped into a Parisian courtyard making you feel like you’re really in Paris. If you’re feeling hungry, there will be a pop-up Parisian Bistro with gourmet croissants and fresh baguettes.
Overflowing Moet waits for your upstairs along with canapés and sweet Parisian desserts to keep you buzzed and well-fed the entire night whilst you wait for the 12:00 a.m. ball to drop.
Live entertainment will play all throughout the evening so you can sing and dance your hearts out. There will be DJs and a set from The Voice’s Chris Sheehy. Little Billy will also be performing underground.
There will be a 4-hour premium beverage package from 8:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. Drinks included here are Moet, spirits, 35 different beers, wine and cocktails.
Pre-registration begins on 28 December until the 30th of December from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. So save yourself the hassle and pre-register here or you can drop by at the hotel in the courtyard as well.
Come on and join the fun as the German festival spirit invades Toowong at the Regatta Hotel from 13 October to 15 October, starting at 4:00 p.m. on the 13th.
The hotel will be transformed into a German Beer Hall. Overflowing authentic German beer such as Hoegaarden and Blue Moon will be available for everyone for three days.
If you’re not in the mood for beer, there will also be a curated selection of wines and other German liquer available.
This event isn’t just about the beer and beverages, though! Good German food is coming your way as well. The festival will feature German favourites like the weiner schnitzel, pork knuckle, and the Regatta’s very own German bratwurst burger.
Of course, no one should go home without trying the Apple Strudel. Definitely not to be missed.
It wouldn’t be a festival without music! There will be live musicians at the festival who will also play German music.
Don’t miss out on this event and have a great time “chillen!”
Overlooking the Toowong Reach of the Brisbane River, the heritage-listed Regatta Hotel sits unperturbed by the hustle & bustle of Coronation Drive, looking elegantly classical. Every year, the hotel transforms into the site of a vineyard festival, presenting some of the finest wines from all over the world. This year, it’s happening again.
The Laneway Vineyard Festival will be held on the 20th-21st of May starting from 12:00 p.m. until late in the evening. The event will showcase 70 premium international and local wines. Gourmet food stalls will also be set up to offer perfect pairings for the various wines.
