Cartier Masthead Final Weeks

Your chance to get wild with HerCanberra

Beatrice Smith

Come and celebrate at Canberra’s wildest launch event with HerCanberra. 

We’ve already given you a sneak peek of luxury cocktail lounge Swan & Kingthe sister to The Canberra Rex’s buzzing rooftop bar The Howling Moon.

Now, we’re giving you the chance to come and celebrate their combined launch at an exclusive party – Tame The Wild.

Celebrations will take place on Friday 27 July from 7 pm and you, dear HerCanberra reader, are invited.

Swan & King

Downstairs at Swan & King, you’ll enjoy speciality cocktails and a champagne fountain. The royal treatment will also include plenty of photo opportunities and a beautifully decorated environment so you can party like a queen.

Then, ascend the glass staircase to The Howling Moon where you’ll find a grazing table, special Tame The Wild menu and DJ Ashley Feraude enticing you to a moonlit dancefloor.

Want more? The first 50 guests in the door at 7 pm will receive a complimentary cocktail book with all the best recipes from the evening.

We can’t wait to see you there.
