Get ready to party like it’s 1873! The iconic Coogee Bay Hotel is turning 150 years young this year, and they’re kicking off the celebrations with a Big Birthday Bash you won’t want to miss.

Join the festivities on Sunday, March 26th from 12pm in The Garden at Coogee Bay Hotel for an epic party that’s sure to be one for the history books. The event promises a range of exciting activities, including live music and DJs, a special kid’s corner with face painting and balloon animals, delicious food and drink specials, and a massive birthday cake to cap it all off.

This milestone celebration marks the start of a year-long extravaganza, divided into three distinct phases, that will showcase the hotel’s rich history, current vibrant spirit, and ambitious future plans. The first phase, ‘The Legacy,’ will run from February to April, followed by ‘Forever Young’ from May to August, and ‘Many Happy Returns’ from September to November.

In addition to the festivities, Coogee Bay Hotel has commissioned a specially-designed mural by local artist Charlie Nivison from Silly Pear, which will take centre stage, immersing patrons in a mesmerising journey through time. This unique artwork will revisit the iconic heritage of the venue, celebrate its presence, and provide a sneak peek into the exciting future plans of this beloved institution.

Entry to the Big Birthday Bash is free, and with $5 off all pints, tap cocktails, and base spirits, $10 off all wine bottles, free soft drinks, and $2 Red Bull, there’s no reason not to join in the fun.

Coogee Bay Hotel’s Managing Director Chris Cheung said, “We are beyond thrilled to be celebrating 150 years of creating memories at Coogee Bay Hotel, starting off with our Big Birthday Bash at The Bay. We invite the community to come reflect on decades past with our new historic museum, live music and debuting of spectacular artwork mural to kick off a milestone year for our venue.”

Don’t miss out on this once-in-a-century-and-a-half celebration. Bring your friends and family to Coogee Bay Hotel’s Big Birthday Bash and be part of history in the making.
