Albion’s iconic watering hole is bringing patrons back to where it all began with a 1890s-themed ball amongst a week of entertainment.
The Breakfast Creek Hotel, one of Brisbane’s most iconic hotels, celebrates its 125th year in business this Saturday 10 May, and is set to hold an extravagant 1890s themed ball on their front lawn to celebrate.
The hotel will transform into its former 19th century self when its black-tie anniversary ball takes place, complete with an 1890s best dressed competition.
Hotel manager Sam Gullo says the hotel is looking forward to celebrating such a milestone with anyone who is up for a good night with good company.
“As well as the great food and drink, we are going to have a blast from the past with one of Australia’s most iconic 80s bands playing their first gig back in Australia for almost 20 years – Rusty and the Ayers Rockettes. The very same band gave Keith Urban his career-break,” says Gullo.
“This will be a party fit for the touring royals; the only difference is everyone is invited.”
Built in the French Renaissance style in 1889, the Brekky Creek Hotel has attracted fame for its ‘beer off the wood’, its claim to the world’s biggest rum bar and its quality steaks, which have had over a century to reach perfection.
The 125th Anniversary Ball kicks off a week of birthday celebrations, running from 10 May to 17 May.
Also included in the event calendar is the Brekky Creek Hotel annual Mother’s Day Family Fun Day, Cabbie’s Sausage Sizzle and the 1970s lunch day where patrons can dine at 1970s prices.
Tickets to the Anniversary Ball are priced at $125, and are all-inclusive of drinks, a selection of food including the Brekky Creek world-famous beer, and the night’s entertainment.
All proceeds will be directed to support the Breast Cancer Fundraiser Appeal for the P.A Research Foundation.
