Why you can’t miss the American Express Lounge at VAEFNO 2019

Featuring complimentary Champagne, beats and an NYC block party vibe, a visit to the Amex Lounge is a must at VAEFNO 2019

Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting the Amex Lounge Melbourne for the fifth Vogue American Express Fashion’s Night Out – one of my favourite shopping events of the year.

VAEFNO is a one of a kind event that sends savvy shoppers giddy with excitement. For a single night each year, the Melbourne and Sydney CBDs are transformed into a shopping wonderland – complete with exclusive offers, fashion shows, music performances and more.

Melbourne’s event took place on Thursday 29 August. If you’re based in Sydney, you’ll get a chance to shop up a storm on Thursday 5th September.

And, based on my visit to the Melbourne event, it’s fair to say that eligible Amex cardholders in Sydney won’t want to miss a visit to the American Express Lounge during VAEFNO 2019.

This year, Amex are pulling out all the stops with a stunning NYC block party themed lounge, complete with dramatic floral displays and cool beats. Plus, you can kick off the evening with a complimentary glass of Mumm Champagne (more on that below).

Upon my visit to the Melbourne Lounge, I found a cool space decked out with areas to sit, perch and mingle. It provided the perfect vibe for kicking back and relaxing between those all-important shopping expeditions.

I was also particularly excited to discover American Express has partnered with GH Mumm to offer visitors a complimentary glass of Mumm NV Champagne!

The NYC block party theme carried through to the food offering, with bagels on offer. Have a sweet tooth? The good people at Amex had even set up an enticing ‘pick and mix’ lolly station in support of their Refer a Friend program.

  1. Hi Adele, if I have previously held an AMEX card within the last 18 months (not a DJ Amex), will I qualify for the bonus points here? Thanks.

    1. Hi Wan, so long as you’ve not held an American Express card issued by David Jones in the past 18 months, you are not precluded from accessing the bonus points under this offer. Hope that helps 🙂
