You Just Can’t Stay Away From The Bay

As we enter April and start to look forward to Easter eggs and ANZAC day holidays, it’d be easy to assume venues would throw together a couple of parties for the month to mark each occasion and be done with it. If you’re a regular patron to Mornington’s Bay Hotel, though, you can expect a huge special event each and EVERY week in April on top of their regular roster, set to have all your coming weekends virtually sewn up!

It all begins on Thursday April 10 with Plugged In Thursday’s 1st Birthday! Over the last 12 months, local musicians and great food and drink specials and, of course, the odd bit of Beer Bingo have helped establish ‘Plugged In’ as both a premier supporter of fine up and coming local talent, and one of the most unique and fun ways to spend a Thursday night. Now it’s your chance to come along and celebrate their birthday with some of the people who made the night what it is today.

The following Thursday is Good Friday eve, with a massive night planned for both levels from 9pm. Upstairs, The Bay welcomes back the AZMAC boys, supported by some of the Peninsulas hottest DJs and local talent. Downstairs will be dedicated to live music with Ben Jansz, Joshua Andrew, Kate McLachlan and Dawkins taking the stage from 8:30pm. You’ve got two days to recover before the following (Easter) Sunday sees Funticket Entertainment present the best of Fribays… on a Sunday! Headlining the night will be Apocalypto, with Cheap Thrills and guests upstairs in the club alongside Damang & Craig M who’ll be mixing it up downstairs with some amazing RnB. Get in early to avoid the lines, with doors open from 9pm.

In another massive late week party, Thursday April 24 will of course be ANZAC Day Eve, with both levels open once again to help welcome the public holiday. Upstairs, you can catch Zac Waters & Chorne, with live acoustic music downstairs throughout the night set to include Aimee Chambers, James Ducca, Andrea McMillan and Sarah Rzek Band.

So whilst you could grab the diary and jot down some dates, it’s probably more worthwhile making plans to frequent The Bay throughout April, full stop, as they have live music, great food and drink specials, premier and local DJs and public holidays all sorted! Plus, if your lucky enough to share a birthday with the Easter bunny, you can sort out a guestlist giving you a $30 drink card, FREE entry for you and a friend and priority entry in the VIP line for all your other friends to make sure you’re all in early and first to the dancefloor.
