Bringing a bit of ‘Chelsea’ to Brisbane



A new on trend, alfresco venue ‘Chelsea Lane’ has just opened at Mercure Brisbane.
Expected to be popular with millennials looking for a hip outdoor venue, over $200k
has been spent on the laneway to bring a touch of ‘Made in Chelsea’ to Brisbane.

The venue has been ingeniously created between the ibis and Mercure Brisbane, in the
thoroughfare that was once used as a bus or taxi drop-off and pick-up point.

General Manager of Mercure Brisbane, Grant Parnell said: “We’re delighted to open
this new chic addition to our function spaces to complement our existing ballroom
and provide a larger more energised, ambient and youthful space.

“The alfresco styled venue is prominent to passers-by, creating appeal with living
greenery and bamboo planting to ensure a relaxed environment for event-goers to spread out.
Under the direction of InDesign International, one-off custom made retro pieces and
industrial styling including metal and wood high top and low benches add personality.

Rusted light board letters illuminate the wall with a honeycomb trellis finished off
with bamboo planting and palm planting.

The spacious new lane will accommodate up to 120 people and is expected to be popular for
standing cocktail functions, launch parties and local exhibitions.

To celebrate, the hotel is hosting an opening special, be one of the first to book an event
in Chelsea Lane during 2016 and receive a 10% rebate on all food and beverage spend.*

With health, wellbeing and sustainability increasingly top of mind when booking a function,
Chelsea Lane will offer healthy menus and wellness options, in line with Mercure’s new Mindful
Meetings concept.

Mindful Meetings are also carbon neutral as part of AccorHotels Planet 21 program
and the group’s commitment to sustainable development to protect our planet,
people and environment.
