Our Partystar listing had immediate effect, generating specific leads who were already essentially sold on a booking. We saw a return on investment within the first week of our listing going live. Highly recommend.
Cam, Nevermind Bar (Melbourne)
I have been using Partystar for the past 6 years. Year on year they provide me with a steady stream of clients. Just getting one customer from Partystar pays back the investment (and some) I make with them. I reckon the ROI just with the Partystar website is 1500%! Then I get return customers that keep on coming back year after year. I would highly recommend their website
Adam Bonola, Fireflies Wine Bar (Melbourne)
Partystar connects the customers to the business with ease. Clear event details sent directly to the business meaning we can get back in touch with the customer with efficiency.
Cat Ellis, Dan O'Connell Hotel (Melbourne)
Party star has been a great marking tool for us at the Sporting Globe.

Partystar has been the best source of The Arkaba Hotel gaining private functions over the last two years. The company will photograph the venue for free and have been very helpful with any questions I have had. I recommend the service to all businesses who need to increase their function sales.

The team at Partystar are a pleasure to deal with and have been very helpful with our venue listing. Partystar have been able to advertise our venue for functions to audiences that we would not have been able to reach with our other online listings. We now have had several successful functions as a result. Would recommend Partystar to any new business looking for new customers for their business.
James Kadamani, Basco Bar (Melbourne)
Tony le Pony has just completed it’s first year with Partystar and has happily re-signed for it’s second. Over this period due to the partnership of Partystar and "Word of Mouth" we have noticed a remarkable increase in our functions. Partystar offers a tremendousl starting point for people looking to hold a function and from a management perspective it’s wonderful already having a lot of potential customers questions already answered and customers keen when they make initial contact. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Partystar and would rate them 4/5 for service.
Denise Atkinson, Tony le Pony (Melbourne)
Lezzet’s ongoing annual listing with PartyStar is totally results driven. Enquiries continue to increase annually with a high percentage resulting in bookings and successful, profitable events. The PartyStar website is well executed, with tangible information and offers, that translate into solid bookings. A happy partnership is one where input level is low, and results are high.
Kemal Barut, Lezzet (Melbourne)
We at the Union Hotel in Ascot Vale have been using the services of Partystar for a while now. Our Hotel had quite a few enquiries through their website and we were able to convert a lot of functions since we started the partnership. We recommend Partystar to other businesses that just like us are looking to increase their functions income. We would rate Partystar as an overall 4 stars out of 5.
Thiago da Silva, Marketing Manager, Union Hotel - Cook Beaumont Hotel (Melbourne)
The Madison Hotel has utilised Partystar for the past three years.

To Whom It May Concern.
The Commune Café in East Melbourne have used the services of Partystar for a period of over two years.
We were originally recommended by another happy client of theirs , The Eltham Gateway and Function Centre..
During this time we have had the opportunity of quoting on average 2-3 genuine function leads per week.
Being in the city presents significant competition ,however our success rate is such that we have again signed on for another 12 months.
Our return on investment in Partystar initially gives us the opportunity to quote and be in the race to secure new business.
Whether we succeed is really if we are a good fit with the clients needs re décor ,product offer and pricing.
Partystar deliver and we rate their professionalism and opportunities that they present 4.5 stars out of 5.
Tony Imbesi, Director, The Commune (Melbourne)
Partystar have been a terrific source of enquiries for our function centre since we began advertising with them, their website is easy to use and their customer service has been excellent. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending their services for other venues, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them.
Andrew Gommers, Marketing & Sponsorship Manager, Northern Blues Football Club (Melbourne)
Since having my venue listed on Partstar, my events and functions at the venue have doubled in volume. Partstar has been absolutely fantastic. The service and bookings they have delivered has been great for my business. Would highly recommend Partystar to any other venue at there.

We at the Birmingham Hotel in Fitzroy have been using the services of Partystar for about a year now and we are very happy with the results.

I’ve been using Partystar as a referring source for our GPO functions for the past 4 years. We consistently receive leads and the cost we pay for our listings are easily made up up by the many functions we convert.

Christian Pinto, The Leichardt Hotel (Sydney)
We here at Black Bear Lodge have been using Partystar for about a year now and get regular functions from it. For a venue that doesn't do heaps of functions, it is great for us as we access a section of the public that would never normally think of our bar to have their party. To be honest, we wouldn't have ever thought to pay for a service like this but after our free trial, there was no way we were going to let go of this great service. Definitely recommend.
Dominic Miller, Black Bear Lodge (Brisbane)
We at the Metropolitan Hotel would just like to thank the team at Partystar for the services and listing they provide. The photographer they sent managed to capture our function space beautifully and it is shown on the site exactly how we would like our customers to see it! We have worked with partystar for years and received many function leads through the website, which in turn we have converted to a sales!
Jessica McNab, Functions, The Metropolitan Hotel (Melbourne)
partystar has been a great tool for us for getting new clietelle into our venue. This site has boosted our weekend evening trade, Thanks partystar.
Hayley Frew, Outerspace Espresso (Brisbane)
I have to give to them. Partystar works. We get a lot of enquiries through the site and enough of them convert into confirmed bookings to make it worthwhile.
Tim Carroll, Black Bear Lodge (Brisbane)
Party star have been fantastic in helping us book functions in our quietest times as well as our busiest. I would definitely recommend them to other businesses.
James Duncan, Royal Derby Hotel (Melbourne)
I first came across the party star website and found it a great tool for advertising our events and special function happening at our venue, we managed to generate a lot of interest from people that we wouldn't normally capture. After the success of this we were given the opportunity to advertise our event spaces on the website. Julie was amazing at making the process really easy and stress free, she sent a photographer to shoot our spaces which looked incredible. We have generated a number of bookings for mainly social events such as 21st birthdays, engagements and weddings.We have recently just purchased an additional 6 months on the site and are happy to be working with such a great website. I would highly recommend using this great tool for your events and function enquires.
Lee Cleal, Group sales & Events Manager, Woolshed Pub (Melbourne)
As an easy-to-use website, Partystar has proven to be a great success towards increasing our functions trade. The entire process is very simple for both the client and the business, and helps to optimise the quick response time to the client.
Jess Williams, Functions Manager, Jubilee Hotel (Brisbane)
We have been using Partystar for the last 3 years to complement our marketing campaign for function bookings. The reason we keep on signing back up to Partystar is that it delivers actual results every year. We track our business very closely and we can always count on events originating from a Partystar enquiry every month. We are a 21 year old business and our marketing budget is very targeted, but I can say that Partystar will be a part of it for the foreseeable future based on the performance we have seen so far.
Trevor Candido, General Manager, Universal Bar (Perth)
The White Bar has been involved with Partystar for a number of years. We have found them to be very professional and easy to deal with. The function enquiries received from Partystar are well qualified, which enables us a good percentage strike rate. We have no hesitation in recommending Partystar to other venues.
Dominic Follacchio, White Bar (Melbourne)
I have had my cafe listed on the Partystar website for 3 years now and I have successfully hosted many functions courtesy of the great response from my listing. I would highly recommend the Partystar website to list and book functions in Melbourne along with the professionalism and support of the Partystar team.
Ian Beer, Owner, Acoustic Cafe (Melbourne)
We have used Partystar since opening in 2010 to assist us to reach and showcase our venue to a greater online audience.

As a business, we are thrilled to be listed with Partystar. Feel confident when using Partystar. Professionally run, with a user friendly website. Just a few clicks and you will find the perfect venue for your special event. As a testament to their great service, we have many happy customers. Thanks Partystar.
Suzi, Caffe La Via (Melbourne)
Partystar and their services has been a huge asset to our business. They have provided exposure and access to a range of new clients who have not been to the venue before. The inquiries come through in real time and the administrative support and feedback provided by their team is great. As a niche and specialty venue we have been successful in building our client base and of the bookings that come through to us via the site, we have a 90% booking conversion rate. Of those functions we have since obtained regular return business and word of mouth advertising and bookings. Easy to use, effective to communicate with the staff and regular support and service is provided. I could not recommend the site more. We will be a continued supported and very happy customer.
Chrissy Symeonakis, Goldfish (Sydney)
I would like to thank you and your business so much for completely transforming our business. We have operated for two and a half years now and jumped on board with Partystar in July 2012. We had been recieving at least 2 functions a month through your website immediately and are currently up to 3 to 4 a month now. As a result we have put on more staff, no longer open to the general public and are making a profit for the first time. Thanks again! Keep up the fantastic work!
Tania De Bortoli, Casablanca Lounge (Melbourne)
At Geddes Lounge we are proud to be partnered with Partystar, the range of venue enquiries from Corporate to Weddings that come from the site are a great help in connecting with potential clients. Many a successful event at our venue has started from a Partystar enquiry.
