18th Birthday Party Celebrations Brisbane

Well, this is it. You had a routine going – you were stuck in your ways. You were happy being twenty-something and waking up without a hangover.

But now the tables have turned, and those friends you labelled #old on their 30th birthdays have grown a smug, all-knowing grin. It’s finally your turn to take the hit – but if you’re going down, you may as well search out the best function rooms Brisbane has to offer.

And when it comes to birthday party ideas, Brisbane venue The Fox Hotel has a few ideas to offer.


Here are three ways to celebrate the death of your twenties:

  1. The Eligible Bachelor

Some habits die hard, and your routine from years long gone seems set to stay the same forever. Partying hard, staying up late – it’s enough to make your friends want to take a nap just watching.

Hit Dandy’s Rooftop with as much gusto as you did at 21 and spend the night divvying your time between the dance floor, cocktail jugs, and wood-fired pizza.

For anyone who told you that 30 looks like tweed jackets, full-time jobs, and wedding rings, you can tell them once and for all: it looks like a hefty jug of Pimm’s Cup Punch and more arancini balls than you care to admit.


  1. The Settling Down

Do party-hard friends whinge behind your back about how ‘together’ your life is in comparison? Whether you’re married, had kids, or working a cool AF job, you’ve adapted to a more ‘chilled out’ routine long before the thirty train hit.

Leave the hangovers to your twenties and enjoy a chilled night of casual dinner and drinks at Fish Lane Bistro and the Long Bar.


  1. The ‘I’m never turning 30’

If the word ‘thirty’ is whispered in hushed tones, and secretive texts are distributed in lieu of party invites, you may consider hosting an intimate function at The Fox.

Keep your new age bracket on the down-low in smaller function spaces like The Collectors Room and The Boudoir. With just a few close friends to enjoy the evening with (and a hefty bar tab to accompany), who’s to say you’re not still 29?


4. The 30 Years Young

If you embrace getting older, seeing it as an excuse to celebrate your achievements on this planet, an extravagant cocktail soirée is the perfect way to do it. Celebrate three decades over a range of delicious canapés and free-flowing beverages in Fish Lane Creative Studios. This stunning space is perfect for a cocktail event with a difference. You’re never too old for a big night out so get ready to let your hair down.  


5. The Cruisy Long Lunch

Some people just seem to cruise through life. If you like a laid-back affair then a cruisy long lunch is a great way to say see you later to your 20s. The Acadia room is the perfect 30th birthday party venue for a relaxed lunch with bespoke furnishings and access to a private bar. Settle in for an afternoon of drinks and tasty bites as you catch up with friends and family.  


6. The Early Bird

You’re stepping into your thirties now, which probably means sleeping in until the pm is a thing of the past. If you love the mornings kick-start your 30th celebrations with an indulgent brunch spread. Sip bellinis and fill your belly with hotcakes, scones, eggs, bacon and fruit – or whatever your heart desires. The Verandah Room is the perfect space for your birthday brunch with its wooden floors and refreshing tropical decor.
