Mercury turns up heat for corporate clubbers

MERCURY raised the heat and the height of style and elegance when it opened late last month — and the club has its sights firmly targeted on the corporate market.

If the flames at the door are any indication, the club is set to explode with the potential of reaching a nightclubbing market not previously catered for.

In what management says is a lack of night-time venues in Perth offering comfort, style and quality service to city’s working comm-unity, the Mercury has gone all out in renovations to make the surroundings classy and sophis-ticated, yet maintaining the relaxed atmosphere vital for a club.

Management has revamped the downstairs venue, which boasts impressive flame torches, comfy lounges, stylish bars and, well, the dance floor of course.

The club is open from 6pm on Friday and is the perfect place to start the weekend’s activities.

Mercury is located next to The Sheraton Hotel and is open until 6am on Fridays and Saturdays and until 12am on Sundays.

If you think about all the dinners, let alone the packed lunches your mum has made for you, the perfect gift for mum’s day becomes obvious – buy her some scrumptious eats. Here are few things on offer around Perth to celebrate Mother’s Day.

Take mum out for a day of relaxing festivities at Ravenswood Sanc-tuary.

Beginning with breakfast, the menu includes scrambled eggs, bacon and tomatoes with a special sweet Danish pastry. Lunch is just as traditional, but your mum won’t be cooking for hours, with a carved roast served by the chefs at Redcliffe Barn. Either menu is $15 for adults or $7.50 for children, making this Mother’s Day a relatively inexpensive day out. Entertainment is planned and begins at 12.30pm. Bookings are essential and need to be made through Redcliffe Barn by May 9. And while you’re there, catch a glimpse of the Bellawood Parrots, a $1 million sanctuary home to WA’s largest collection of Australian native parrots.

Are you busy this Mother’s Day and would love to do something the following weekend?

Treat mum to lunch on May 20, plus learn tricks of the trade from Star Bistro’s head chef, Bruce Chapman.

The classy Claremont restaurant is offering “A Touch of Class” cooking class luncheon to be held the weekend following Mother’s Day. It’s an innovative idea which allows you to give mum a “gift voucher” in her card on Mother’s Day.

Watch and learn as Bruce Chapman creates a three-course masterpiece, which you get to taste once the ‘genius’ has completed the cooking.

And don’t worry about mum’s memory, a video camera will capture everything, making sure the recipe can be made by you or your mother again and again.

Star Bistro manager Paul Diete says the classes are always popular and they will sell out, so you’d better be quick to get this ideal gift for mum.

However, if you do fancy treating your mum on the day, Star Bistro is hosting a Mother’s Day breakfast and lunch with a menu that will prove to your mum she’s been a shining star in your life, because it’ll just be scrumptious.

Also available to tempt mum’s taste buds are the Star Bistro’s gift boxes.

An elegant box from a stylish restaurant that can be given to mum to make her feel just that little bit more special come Sunday week.

The Star Bistro is offering Mother’s Day gift boxes, which allows you the flexibility to pick and choose the ingredients so mum can get exactly what she is after.

Choose between the handmade valrhona chocolate truffles, a selection of homemade preserves, biscuits, and nougat and, in Star Bistro style, a star mud cake for mum to indulge in. For less than $50, this box is truly gold. Make sure you give the Bistro at least one-day’s notice so they can make you the freshest products available.

The business lunch has been made easy by the Duxton with their “Thirty Dollar Duxton Lunch” that gives you the complete package- complimentary parking, charge-back facilities, and the option of a private dining room.

The Duxton has made it all the more easy to enjoy their great modern Mediterranean cuisine and a glass of wine from their extensive wine list. Two selected courses and espresso for $30 – you can’t go wrong.
