90s House Party for Shop The City

Party like it's 1999 with 90s fashion, beauty, music + movies, plus over 100 shopping offers!
It was the decade we lived on Push-Pops, got down to our Walkman, traded Pogs and dreamed of one day owning Cher’s closet from Clueless.

While we’re totally buggin’ about that closet not being invented yet, we’re loving the fact the 90s are majorly back in fashion. We literally haven’t stopped wearing scrunchies, neon, mum jeans and chunky sneakers… and we’re not afraid to wear them all at once.

So, we’re going to celebrate this iconic era with a 90s house party that would put one of Stifler’s parties in American Pie to shaaame. No invite required either - just don your 90s best, get to Melbourne Central on Wednesday 1 May for over 100 exclusive Shop The City offers from 10am-9pm, and be ready to party like it’s 1999!

Stay tuned for the offers and full event program reveal on 29 April.

We’ll be sending it all the way back with:

The B. Lucky & Sons Party Bar
We all know the wildest house parties start in the kitchen, so meet us there from 5pm to kick the night off! All you have to do is turn up: we’ll be serving up free Woo Woo cocktails in party cups; Grill’d, Nando’s and Pazzi Pizza will be stopping by to deliver free party snacks; and a 90s DJ will be spinning all the best throwback tracks! But remember: You’ve gotta be 18+ to roll with the homies!

5PM – 9PM, or while drinks last

The Powder Room by MAC Cosmetics
Ever dreamed of being Cindy Crawford or Naomi Campbell for a day? Well, the team at MAC will be making all of your 90s supermodel wishes come true, with free 90s-inspired makeup applications at the Powder Room. We’ll bring the nude glossy lips and eyeliner — you bring the fierce poses.

90s Street Style Photography x The Wall of Records
For some of us, the 90s were all about band tees, flannel and ripped stockings. For others, it was scrunchies, mum jeans and chunky sneakers. Luckily, both styles are *totally* back in fashion. Be inspired by your ultimate style icon and dress in your best 90s look for a street style Polaroid and a chance to feature on our socials. Our photographer will be waiting for you by the epic Wall of 90s Records.

While you’re there, grab a white tee and pick a 90s Levi’s logo print design. 90s you would be oh so proud.

The Claw

Dominate 'the claw' one last time (are you getting Toy Story vibes yet?), and you might just win a 90s-themed prize or gift card too! Just like the old school arcade, the more you spend, the more tries you get.

Asian Beer Café 90s Dress Up Party
