Veuve Clicquot Winter Party at Emerson

When Veuve Clicquot held their winter party at Emerson, it had the most eye-boggling decorations. A Veuve chairlift? Skis? Snowboards? Puffer jackets? If they had set up shop, the crowd would have left in a sea of yellow. As it was, they had to be content with merely sipping from the yellow goblets, and hope they would win the skis/ snowboards up for grabs.

Seamstress VIP Membership Launch Night

Seamstress has always been an uber-hip destination: a somewhat hidden hot spot that's housed in a century-old former textile factory (as well as a one-time Buddhist monastery). Now that it's launched its new season menu and cocktail list, it also held a VIP membership night, by inviting some top seamstresses - that would be fashion industry personalities - to attend.

Hotel Brighton Revamp

When an invitation comes from Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Nick Riewoldt, Nathan Brown and Matthew Richardson, you just have to take it. Such was the case for the introduction of the new-look Hotel Brighton, which is now an expansive, cool, nook-filled gastropub, after a massive refurbishment. Its owners - which include the aforementioned four - were all there for lift-off. Check it out as the new destination hot spot.
