Love Bait for the corporate crowd

30 Oct 2009

After checking 50 inner city venues for the best location for a corporate cocktail event, Docklands residents Justine Oh and Vivienne Nguyen and several friends finally settled on … Docklands!

The five friends are hosting a ticketed event called Love Bait on Saturday, November 14 for an over 25-year-old “corporate” crowd.

Justine explained that they physically inspected a short-list of 20 venues before settling on Waterfront Venues’ BCM for the event.

“There was a perception that Docklands was too far away, but when you compare what we have here, it’s the ideal spot,” Justine said.

“It’s actually close to everything, parking is cheaper, it’s classy and it’s also somewhere different for a lot of people.”

Justine said she and her husband moved into the Nolan two years ago and she had previously lived at the Boyd. Vivienne lives at the Arkley and works at NAB in Victoria Harbour.

Justine said: “Docklands is very much our neighborhood, we even had our wedding reception on one of the cruise boats!”

“I have seen it grow since the early days and so I am extremely excited to bring this event to the neighborhood,” she said.

The group of friends got together six months ago and started planning Love Bait.

Vicky Poon said they were motivated by being dissatisfied with the clubbing scene of noisy venues and having to queue for entry and drinks.

“We wanted a space where we could sit and talk and one where most people hadn’t been before,” Vicky said.

The friends are expecting 500 people to attend the function and, by mid-October, had already sold 100 tickets through social media, word of mouth and corporate networks.

Tickets are $25 pre-paid or $30 at the door. The event starts at 9pm.

The Love Bait deal is:

  • First drink is on the house;
  • Complimentary canapes before 10.30pm;
  • The night begins with exclusive live jazz/RnB band entertainment followed by special burlesque performances to kick- start the dance floor with DJ music; and
  • Each ticket entry is also entitled to 25 per cent off Kobe Jones restaurant in November.
