Australia Day at The Fox Hotel

Australia Day at The Fox Hotel

Australia Day Event

Australia Day Eve Event: Solar Pop

Date: 25th January, 2017

Featuring: Rampue (Berlin), Antix and Fiord (New Zealand), Uone (Melbourne) & More to be announced!

First Release Tickets: $10pp

Second Release Tickets: $15pp

First release tickets are now available!


SOLAR POP is a brand new party concept that will take place once a month at the Fox Hotel rooftop this summer.

SOLAR POP is a celebration combining music, arts and interactive experiences with good people.

For our first party, this Australia Day Eve, we are over the moon to present Germany’s super talent Rampue LIVE, alongside Antix and Fiord, Uone and more local acts to be announced.


“It’s a common misconception of people who don’t listen to electronic music to generalize the sound, or write it off as all the same. However, people like Daniel Krajnyak are single-handedly disproving that kind of thinking. This is because Krajnyak, known better as electronic artist Rampue, is constantly changing his style and evolving his sound, showing that the electronic spectrum is, in fact, wide and diverse.” Berlinbeat.org

Antix and Fiord

Also joining us fresh from New Zeland, Out of Sorts! Previously known as Antix and Fiord, this new project is bound to get you grooving on the rooftop.

With a musical background rich with influences from Ritchie Hawtin to Rhythm and Sound, Barton and Hayden have such a plethora of inspiration. It is indisputable that the quality of their music simply demands your attention. On their musical quest they continue to push new boundaries, mesmerizing audiences worldwide.


Melbourne based but internationally known, Uone will be bringing in the sounds from the underground to Brisbane for the occasion. DJ Uone is renowned for his unique sound and the energy it brings to dance floors worldwide. Uone sets blend all disciplines of four to the floor electronic music whilst drawing on a wide palette of influence and exotic tribal cultures, sounds of urban swing, 60s psychedelia and more.

Australia Day Eve: Solar Pop

Brought to you by your new friends down south, Vision Hound, and the good folk at The Fox Hotel… we can’t wait to share news of our summer plans with you.

More local acts to be announced. Stay tuned!

5 Budget Wedding Ideas to get you on your way to “I do”

Congratulations! If you’re reading this blog it’s likely that you’ve got an exciting occasion ahead of you – or you just really like weddings, it’s ok we don’t judge. However, if there’s one thing we know about weddings it’s that despite it being the most exciting day of your life, it can also be the most expensive. From the flowers to the wedding venue, keeping your wedding on a budget can be a real pain in the – nevermind. But don’t despair! You can start off your wedding planning right by making the most cost-effective decision. And here’s 5 ways to do just that.

1. Affordable Wedding Venues

We all know that mentioning the dreaded ‘W’ can make your budget go from zero to one hundred faster than you can say “I do”, so when it comes to finding the ultimate affordable wedding venue why not think outside the box? Host your ceremony in your favourite public park or botanical gardens and let nature be your florist, or make a hip and unusual statement with a non-traditional wedding venue in the heart of the city – it’s a great way to save on travel expenses and helps you skip the exorbitant price tag associated with more high end venues.

2. Off Peak Venue Hire

Lord knows we love a good mid-week deal and when it comes to planning weddings on a budget this is one red hot tip that you’ll be glad you took advantage of. Skip the stress of planning your big day on weekends and opt for a smaller, more intimate mid-week ceremony. Not only are you guaranteed to save a bundle on locking in your affordable wedding venue, you’re also less likely to be locked into awkward time frames if there are multiple events on the same day. Just be sure to give your guests plenty of notice so they can get the day off work.

3. Affordable Wedding Photographer

If there’s one way to accidentally demolish your good intentions for a ‘wedding on a budget’ it’s this sneaky cost. But don’t despair, in this day and age there a great range of options to make sure your picture perfect wedding is beautifully documented without having to resort to skimping on other important areas of your big day. Consider contacting your local university to see if there’s a student photographer looking to expand their portfolio or lock in a strict 2-3 hour timeframe that covers your ceremony and reception venue arrival. Want to add a fun, modern twist to your big day? Hire a service like ‘Instathat’ for your candid social media snaps and create a fun keepsake for your guests to take home.

That way your guests are free to mingle with each other, relieving you of the grizzly task of trying to figure out place settings, table numbers and where on earth you’re going to put your crazy Aunt Shirley.

Save your pennies on costly graphic design and printing and opt for online services like Paperless Post. It’s a cute modern way to send out your invitations and an even easier way to keep track of your RSVPs.

Summer themed parties

Summer themed parties

There comes a point in summer where every local wonders if there are things to do in Brisbane beyond running through sprinklers and staring out windows, silently willing storm clouds to appear.

And no, the answer is not ‘move to Tasmania.’ Don’t be that guy.

As one of the most diverse party venues Brisbane can showcase, The Fox Hotel makes the most of hot summer days with parties, cold drinks, and an escape from the thousand-degree temperature of that little place known as ‘outside.’


The Fox Hotel’s summer themed parties

  1. Hawaiian tiki party

Say ‘aloha’ to a long-awaited cocktail jug on Dandy’s Rooftop and start the afternoon on island time. Embarrassing hula moves aren’t compulsory, but they do make some great (cringe-worthy) Snapchats.


  1. Beach party

Chuck on your boardies for a day at South Bank beach and some wind-down beers at the Long Bar. We recommend donning your finest thongs and switching those summer ice blocks for more effective (and more enjoyable) cocktails.


  1. BBQ chargrill on Dandy’s

Want a weekend sesh hotter than a steering wheel in December? Gather the gang on Dandy’s for an afternoon of cocktails, dance moves, and charcoal grilled share platters. Hey, if you’ve been measuring your mango intake by the carton, a platter of lamb cutlets, sausages, Israeli spiced chicken and pepper crusted beef fillet will probably be a welcome reprieve.


  1. Mexican fiesta

Let’s be honest – nothing makes you forget the working year quite as completely as tequila. Don your at-home sombrero (if you don’t have one, you need to make some changes) and head to The Fox Hotel for summertime tacos and margaritas.

With tacos filled with pork cheek, beer cooked brisket, and popcorn prawns, you’ll have your summer sesh all wrapped up.

Best ways to end the work year

Best ways to end the work year

Brisbane functions

You can stop glaring at your snooze button, drawing frowny faces on your paperwork, and seriously contemplating lashing Gary in accounts to his chair with tinsel to stop him stealing lunches from the fridge. Let’s face it, Gary’s eaten a year’s worth of sandwiches, a bit of well-utilised Christmas cheer won’t stop him.

The good news, though, is that the work year is very nearly over, leaving you two glorious weeks free of paperwork, commuting, and computer screen headaches. As one of the top corporate function venues Brisbane has to offer, those end-of-year celebrations can go in plenty of directions at The Fox Hotel.

Oh, and we’ll make sure there’s a drink in your hand if Gary attempts some social chatter.


Ways to end the work year at The Fox Hotel:

  1. Secret Santa

You’ve gotta love an office tradition that makes you realise you’ve worked with people all year and still know next to nothing about them. Cross your fingers, sit back with a mojito on Dandy’s Rooftop, and pray that Karen was actually the one you were talking with about Game of Thrones last June.

Grab some snapshots of the team with a few festive photo props and order some cocktails to celebrate that your next awkward attempt at Secret Santa is now 365 days away.


  1. A much-needed meal

It’s always nice being able to eat without worrying that other office workers can hear you chewing over their typing. Make up for a year of eating toast in the car and sandwiches at your desk with a proper team meal at Fish Lane Bistro.


  1. Night-long drinks

Trust us, it takes a pretty stiff drink to recover from clearing out a year’s worth of emails. Set up a table with the team in the Long Bar and throw back a few whiskeys. And by a few, we don’t mean enough to have you blubbering about missing out on the lead role in your high school musical. You might not have to see your boss for two weeks, but if you burst into tears over a lost career in theatre, it’s safe to say he’ll probably remember.

Ready to kick your Brisbane Christmas party into gear before the work break? Contact our staff at The Fox Hotel to book an event!

NYE at The Fox Hotel

NYE at The Fox Hotel



2017 is drawing closer – it’s time to lock in those NYE plans! If your biggest resolution is to not spend the night on the couch with a packet of sparklers, we’ve got your back.

Check out how to welcome in the new year at The Fox Hotel.


  1. The big event

Grab New Year’s Eve by the chopsticks at The Fox Hotel. With two events hotter than a mouthful of wasabi, you’ll be able to drink, dance, and eat ‘til you’re ready for a professional sumo career (worth it).

  • Celebrate with Sega, sushi & sumo: $99

Throwback to the days where your biggest responsibility was beating the next level map on Sonic the Hedgehog. While you probably won’t wake up with all three lives the next morning, you’ll find plenty of power-ups throughout the night. And by power-ups, we mean feast-worthy levels of sushi and drinks for 5 hours.

  • Fireworks package: $179

Flaunt your VIP status with an all-access pass to The Fox Hotel. With a 5 hour premium food and drinks package and exclusive access to the top viewing spot for Brisbane fireworks – Dandy’s Rooftop – 2017 couldn’t enjoy a warmer welcome.


  1. Pre-fireworks dinner and drinks 

Make your last meal for 2016 a good one (if only ‘cause we all know the first one for 2017 will be a questionable kebab). If nothing has you seeing fireworks more than a frosty beer, stop in at the Long Bar before the fireworks.

The Fox Hotel: now bringing you NYE events in Brisbane where South Bank ibises won’t steal your dinner … and your soul.


  1. Cocktail party

Looking to get dressy and revel in the fact that you won’t have to see the office weirdo ‘til next year? Take in some canapés, cocktails, and dance moves that get dodgier every hour. With a host of function spaces and menus available, you’ll have enough cocktails to recover from Christmas, the work year, and that traumatic talent show from your first year of high school.

Cocktail Party Venue

It’s been years of essays, years of tutorial presentations, and years of people sitting right next to you in an empty lecture theatre. All that hard work has most likely fried your brain, and when you’re trying to come up with graduation party ideas all you’re getting is the image of a monkey riding a unicycle. Don’t worry, The Fox Hotel is here to help. With three different sections – Fish Lane Bistro, The Long Bar, and Dandy’s Rooftop – and plenty of function venues, it’s the perfect place to say goodbye to uni and hello to party season.


  1. You’ll never have to feel guilty about skipping a lecture again (but still do it every week)

The only thing you have to feel guilty about now is skipping drinks at the Fox Hotel. The Long Bar will help you accept that those lectures are long gone and replace those half-hearted notes with a glass of rosé. Chuck out that colour coded timetable because the only colours you need to know are red and white. Toss the highlighters and toss back a beer instead.


  1. Uni sign-on is just a distance nightmare

No longer will you have to wake up in cold sweats when sign on time is upon you. Now, the only thing you have to worry about is what kind of graduation shindig you want to have. Maybe a night filled with cocktails and tunes on Dandy’s Rooftop? Or an afternoon of beers and burgers at the Long Bar? Perhaps a nice meal and a whole lot of booze at Fish Lane Bistro?


  1. Cocktails while others are kicking off summer semester

You’ve survived years of essays, speeches, lecturers with voices that could put you to sleep in seconds, and it’s time to treat yourself to a cocktail (or five) at Dandy’s Rooftop. Grab a glass filled with vodka, pavan, crème de peche, cranberry juice and strawberries with the Strawberry Fields Forever or juggle a jug of Lychee Dreams – a delicious mixture of vodka, soho liqueur, sweet apple and pineapple, and a dash of sour lemon.


  1. Group assignments now only involve rounds of drinks

Group together your friends for a little or large goodbye – what’s a farewell party without a few rounds of beers? The Fox Hotel is one of the most versatile party venues in Brisbane with eight function areas holding anywhere from 16 to 200 people. Just make sure to leave the slackers that did no work off the guest list.


  1. Swap eating out of library vending machine for actual food

No longer will you be surviving on half melted chocolate bars and overpriced packets of chips that are 90% air. Grab some friends and treat yo’ self to a burgerlicious bash at the Long Bar, a pizza party at Dandy’s Rooftop, or a fine food festivity at Fish Lane Bistro.

Bucks Party Ideas Brisbane

New Year’s is upon us and we know what that means – drinking, fireworks, fun, and, most importantly, trying to avoid the mistakes you make last New Year’s Eve. If this sounds like you, The Fox Hotel is going to be your new best friend with our New Year’s Eve fixes.

Missed the fireworks because you were too busy drinking

It seems to happen every year. You tell yourself that you’ll have a drink or two on South Bank then wonder down to the river to witness the fireworks show. Six drinks and many minutes later, you hear the first ‘boom’, and scramble outside but all you can see is a little flicker over the trees. It’s a sadder scene than when Scar threw Mufasa off the cliff. Make this year different and head to Dandy’s Rooftop at The Fox Hotel. With the best views of the Brisbane fireworks show on South Bank, you’ll catch every colourful explosion. And what’s more – you don’t even have to put your drink down.

Fell asleep far before midnight

There’s something about New Year’s Eve night that makes everyone tired. On any other given day, you could easily keep your eyes open until midnight, but once it hits December 31st, the fun police seem to pull down your eyelids and knock you out before the party really starts. The Fox Hotel will put a firm stop to that. Come in and kill two tired birds with one stone with a delicious espresso martini packed with caffeine to keep you going and smooth liqueurs to keep things fun.

New Year’s Eve Party was a disaster

Someone spilt red wine on the carpet, a couple is fighting in the laundry, a grumpy neighbour made a noise complaint, and there’s not enough food. No matter how hard you try the NYE house party can get a bit out of control. And who wants to spend the first day of the New Year fishing beer cans out of the pool? Nobody. How does 5 hours of food and drink, live entertainment, games, and no cleaning sound? The Fox Hotel will be supplying this New Year’s Eve miracle. We’ve got two of the best NYE events in Brisbane with our two all-inclusive packages that will make sure the year goes out with a stress-free bang.

Make an early resolution to have a stress free New Year’s Eve!
