Another level of events: Level One Craft Beer & Coffee Bar

“Level One Events caters to traditionalist couples through to the wild ones who want anything but!” says Wedding Planner Kate Grater. Level One Craft Beer & Coffee Bar launched Level One Events in 2020 so couples can have it all.



The boho beach style is rich décor, dark green foliage, bar leaners, plush sofas and comfy relaxing nooks for guests to converse.

Kate says while weddings are changing with the times, traditional affairs hold the same grace and style as ever.

“Embracing the new wave in the ‘I do’ department leads way for niche pop-up, micro, elopement, and bespoke wedding services.”

Level One Events hosts and creates beautiful events, unique to each couple.

“Every couple envisions the look and feel of their day. We match their requests with our services, based on taste, style and budget. There’s no ‘one size fits all’ wedding package, because no love is the same.

“We’ve heard complaints of confusing price structures, too many options and overwhelming correspondence between involved parties. Our straight forward wedding planning is a no-fuss approach, so you can focus on what’s important.”

Level One provides all or part of the venue, catering, décor and planning, all year round.

“We’re here to assist in making magic happen, not breaking the bank – to really enjoy the planning process, right through to ‘I do’.”

Creative Culinary Co-working

Tired of sitting in your air-conditioned office on these beautiful, sunny summer days? Then, it’s time to head to New Brighton and try social co-working, where you can enjoy both the ocean breeze and a panoramic sea view.



For the past three years, collaborative manager Rebecca Tavete has operated the co-working space, Argo, at 1/215 Marine Parade and new venture, Level One right next door has been operating for the past 18 months.

From traditional work stations to café co-working, the two work seamlessly together, offering a range of memberships to suit most budgets.

The aim, Rebecca says, is to “bring community back to big business”.

“It’s the biggest thing city workers say they miss,” she says. “It’s all about work-life balance. You can get out of the office, come and work by the beach, connect with other co-workers and return with a revived energy. We have panoramic views and are literally across the road from the ocean.”

From $40+GST per month, digital nomads can café co-work all day long and enjoy perks, like free tai chi classes.

At the same site, Level One, is now available to host open mic nights, makers’ markets, weddings and special birthdays.

“It’s all one, really,” Rebecca says. “We’ve created a synergy between the two spaces and the momentum is building.”
