Happy New Year Everyone! 2014 was an amazing year for Ford Digital Agency and our clients and we think 2015 is going to be even bigger and better. December, the party season month was super busy for all of our clients and as we all look forward to the new year – here’s a quick recall of what we got up to at the end of 2014.
Dutch Courage Officer’s Mess had the busiest month featuring in numerous even listings including BMag’s “Ultimate Guide to NYE in Brisbane” along with new client Sway Cocktail Bar & Lounge and Cobbler Speakeasy. They were also named one of Brisbane’s top picks for New Year’s Eve and among Brisbane’s best New Years Eve parties. More notably since opening in June, Dutch Courage was featured in the Urban List who named good ol Dutch as one of Brisbane’s Best Bars of 2014 (from the whole of Australia!). Amongst all of this, Dutch Courage were also featured in the Weekend Edition in a round up of the freshest new summer brews.
Cobbler‘s Led Zeppelin cocktail made the Weekend Edition’s seasonal cocktail list boasting ingredients such as fresh Bowen mangoes, Pisco, Campari, lemon juice and leatherwood honey. Cobbler also made it into West End Magazine’s “4101 Mover’s & Shakers”. Dominic Xavier (pictured below), Cobbler’s award-winning bartender recently returning from competing in the international final in New York City for Bulldog Gin’s Defying Conformity competition after recently winning the Australian final.
Sway Cocktail Bar and Lounge is our third venue to be featured in the Weekend Edition’s seasonal cocktail list. Head down and try their Spritz blend featuring Aperol, Chandon and a twist of peach, garnished with grapefruit, orange and lime. They also featured in numerous listings boasting their Hedkandi NYE White Glitter Ball, including Scenestr’s New Year’s Eve Guide to Brisbane, Gold Coast, and Sunshine Coast.
