Last night we unlocked the doors,
to the King Street's newest boutique bar for the very first time. The culmination of almost a month of hard work and planning climaxing in a party for the record books with a pretty exclusive guest list to boot.
The VIP Launch of Door 49, in collaboration with WA designer label Ae'lkemi brought back some old school glamour to Perth's number one luxury fashion destination.
Just the first in a series of fashionable collaborations the bar has in the works, Ae'lkemi designer Alvin Fernandez worked with events team, The Studio, to create 100 numbered key rings for guests to keep allowing them the Door 49 VIP treatment every time they return.

With bubbles, beers and specially designed Door 49 Tanqueray gin cocktails on the house, great tunes from one of Perth's hottest DJs (really, she's a babe) - Natalie Daws, and some great company too of course, I'm sure there were some sore heads in beds all around Perth this morning.
