Hilton Hotel Zeta Bar 'Extreme Cabaret' Tantalises, by Eva Rinaldi - 23rd September 2011



Sydney’s Zeta Bar at the world famous Hilton Hotel continued to wow with the extreme cabaret, now a regular on the menu of Friday nights in 'Sin City'. 

If prohibition things and tease are your thing, or vice if you prefer, you have most assuredly come to the right place.

My Human Statue Bodyart was over the moon to once again deliver a red hot and smoking cabaret presentation, this time with a strong burlesque and 'Moulin Rouge' look and feel.

Cabaret lovers were rapt to hear that the rumours continue to get stronger regarding the 'Extreme Cabaret' theme will continuing at Hilton Sydney much longer than the originally forecast 12 weeks. Word is that the new Hilton Hotel at the Gold Coast, as well as New Zealand and even as far as the United Statues and Amsterdam, are keen as a mustard coloured stripper to incorporate extreme cabaret into their big entertainment nights.

Tonight it was Human Statue model Anastasiya Bakss, back by huge demand, made up in a 30's style burlesque like corset, with a dash of black and red bodypaint on some of her extremities, and boy did it epitomise tease, burlesque and titillation. Our doll turned out to be the life of the party, not to our surprise.

The extreme cabaret performances have pumped Hilton's Zeta Bar big time, and we know it's been wonderful for business. Downstairs at the Marble Bar has also appeared to have benefited by extra patrons, most of which enjoy a good drink (and tease).

Zeta Bar biz brainchild Grant Collins says of the nights "a late-1800s circus freak show crossed with 1920s-'30s sophistication".

Some of the most popular drinks at the moment include Absinthe (look for the sexy green bottle) and all things liquid nitrogen.

The filthy fun and flirty Friday nights at Sydney Hilton continue to be a key watercooler conversation piece in offices (and God knows where else) in and around Sydney's CBD for weeks.

So, you're up to be tantalised in an appropriate cool and sexy fashion? Then snatch the opportunity to do 'Sin City' Sydney like it should be done. You can bet you're spanking partner that Sydney Hilton will be pumping big time again next Friday, and its got lots to do about 'extreme cabaret'. Join us and see what all the fuss is about boys and girls. Turn up, or be spanked. Sweet dreams.

Hilton Hotel Sydney Zeta Bar ‘extreme cabaret’ themes red hot, by Eva Rinaldi - 16th September 2011


Sydney’s Zeta Bar at the world famous Hilton Hotel continued to push the extreme cabaret, now a staple of Friday nights in 'Sin City'. 

If prohibition and tease are your thing, or vice if you prefer, you have come to the right place, or at least one of them, and you won't find a dirty old man, peeping tom or brown paper bag anywhere in sight from what we can muster.

My Human Statue Bodyart was thrilled to once again deliver a red hot and smoking cabaret presentation.

Cabaret lovers will be delighted to hear that the rumours continue to getting stronger that the 'Extreme Cabaret' theme will continue at Hilton Sydney much longer than the originally forecast 12 weeks. Word is that Hilton Hotels at the Gold Coast, New Zealand and even as far as the United Statues and Amsterdam are keen to incorporate extreme cabaret into their big entertainment nights.

Tonight it was Human Statue model Anastasiya Bakss made up in a bodypainting based black and red number that epitomised tease, burlesque and titillation.

The extreme cabaret performances have pumped blood into the Hilton's Zeta bar, and we know it's been wonderful for business. Downstairs at the Marble Bar has also appeared to have benefited by extra foot traffic and drinkies.

Zeta Bar biz king Grant Collins says of the nights "a late-1800s circus freak show crossed with 1920s-'30s sophistication".

Specsavers continues NSW business expansion via bodypaint, by Eva Rinaldi - 16th September 2011



The ultra popular Australian eyewar retailer Specsavers has continued to show significant vision and daring in its latest campaign incorporating human statues into its marketing and media mix.

No, we're not talking about Alex Perry being the public face and voice of the company either, but rather a more measured media and marketing mix incorporating bodypaint and themed costumes.

It's marketing vision includes standing out from the pack, and they have again ramped up their campaign incorporating sales 101, superior customer service, quality products, and creativity... thanks to the eye catching human statues.

Last week Specsavers launched their Perth store, but today it was time for NSW via the Winston Hills store, following the lead from the Wetherill Park store this past Wednesday.

Specsavers is currently enjoying an Australia wide campaign which has been running like a freight train from NSW to SA, across to WA, and has now come back full circle to NSW via Western Sydney outlets in the heart of "Boganville".

It's been confirmed that countless retail masterminds from across the nation are watching the Specsavers - Human Statue Bodyart campaign closely, with rumblings dozens of other retailers are going to give the statues and bodypainting a go, in order to not be overshadowed by the dynamic and somewhat daring marketing tactics.

Impressive marketing and media tactics shown by Specsavers, or not? The watercooler chat states beancounters will know for certain in a matter of weeks, and early indicators demonstrate the eyewear retailer has shown great vision with the campaign, and that the rewards have far exceeded the risk.

A number of major retail giants such as Westfield's will soon be testing the waters with statues and bodypaint, and some heavyweights in the hotel - casino - resort sector will also be soon following suit, having caught wind of the campaign, with some also seeing human statues in action at a certain Sydney hotel...something about "Hilton" and extreme cabaret.

The retail industry is remaining divided as to if the statues were too "extreme" or not, but daring to be different may be one of the few ways to bring to life campaigns in the struggling retail sector.

Hilton Hotel Zeta Bar ‘extreme cabaret’ students excel, by Greg Tingle - 9th September 2011


Hilton Sydney’s Zeta Bar continued to bring guests back to the extreme cabaret, now a famous fixture of Friday nights in 'Sin City'.

It was on for young and old tonight as celebrated Australian - Italian creative artist Eva Rinaldi and her team delivered an extremely impressive cabaret presentation.

Tonight's artistic creation was more complex to create than usual so Ms Rinaldi took the opportunity to offer school students Kayleb Cantali and her son, Joseph Rinaldi, some valuable work experience.

Ms Rinaldi said "We absolutely love working with our friends at the Hilton Hotel and the Zeta Bar. Tonight was very special for us because I was able to also include my son Joseph and my nephew Cayleb in our creative arts team. It's work experience time for them and what a fun activity for their high school curriculum. Work experience was never quite this fun in my day. I did the most complicated parts of the painting and design, but I am very proud of the students contribution. The performance and end result was just amazing and oozed extreme cabaret."

Cabaret connoisseurs will be over the moon to hear that the the rumours are getting stronger that the 'Extreme Cabaret' theme will continue at Hilton much longer than the originally forecast 12 weeks. A spy also whispered that Hilton Hotels in New Zealand and even as far as the United Statues are keen to incorporate extreme cabaret into their big entertainment nights.

Tonight it was Human Statue model Anastasiya Bakss made up in a bodypainting based black and red number featuring all manner of risque words like "sexy", "tease", "burlesque" and you get the idea. She read like a book (of the teasing variety). Insiders were overheard comparing it to a famous photo of model Bar Refaeli, who graced the cover of Esquire Magazine a few years back.

The extreme cabaret performances have really added new life into the Hilton's Zeta bar, and we understand it's been great for business as well as far the larger Sydney social scene.

The unlikely joining of extreme cabaret, live music, education and photography really hit the "X" spot tonight and nightlife lovers can't wait for next flirty Friday night to do it all over again at the Zeta.

Special thanks as always to Grant, Manual, Dave and Karina at the Hilton for keeping things running so great for us. Oh, we heard some some guests got tempted to do an overnighter at the Hilton and add themselves to the Hilton Hotel Honours Club. Trust me, its highly recommended.

Up to be tantalised in an acceptable, cool and risque fashion? Snatch the opportunity to do 'Sin City' Sydney like it should be done. It's quite an education, and they do say that there should be fun in learning. Join us in the classroom next week guys and dolls.

Mulberry celebrates Vogue's Fashion Night Out in Sydney, by Eva Rinaldi - 8th September 2011


The countryside came to town at Westfield Sydney... it was the Mulberry Autumn Winter 2011 collection, with foxes feathers, woodlands and all manner of wonderful creatures inspiring their newest offerings.

It was a night of fashion, fun, traditional and eclectic English touches, with mojitos, face-painting, cupcakes, prizes and of course, celebs.

If you didn't know, Mulberry is part of Club 21 - an international leader in lifestyle luxury.

The big picture in the industry selling product, and gift bag giveaways are all the rage, but don't expect "discounts" as such. Celebs and the right media buzz push the machine along, and positive reviews are highly sought after. A positive point of difference, such as Mulberry's foxes and friends, helps their campaign stay in the spotlight. Bodyart was used most effectively, and we hear that many of their competitors will give the paint a go at their next big fashion event.

Vogue Australia editor-in-chief Kirstie Clements was delighted about the way the whole event came together.

Vogue's Fashion Night Out is officially supported by the City of Sydney, and saw 600 retailers host in-store shopping events and special offers, including extended trading hours, designer meet and greets, cocktails and live performances.

The free event was open to all members of the public and included stores throughout Pitt Street Mall, Castlereagh St, Elizabeth St, Martin Place, David Jones, Myer and Westfield Sydney.

Big names at the event included Grant Pearce, men’s fashion director Condé Nast Hong Kong, VFNO ambassador Jessica Gomes, Lord Mayor Clover Moore and Westfield group managing director Australia and New Zealand, Robert Jordan.

Vogue Australia even debuted an iPhone application, 'Vogue VIP at VFNO', designed to deliver tips and premium offers on shopping and fashion.

Tonight Mulberry was one of the big stand outs and offered up fab fashion, eclectic English touches, and friends and guests sipped on berry mojitos, doubled with toadstool cupcakes.

Yes fashion insiders, it was the place to be seen and expect many of the night's wares to be the hottest fashions items this season.





Protect our foxes equal to man and womens best friend. R.I.P Buffy

Sydney Hilton Hotel Zeta Bar titillates with ‘extreme cabaret’ fairies- 26th August 2011


Hilton Sydney’s Zeta Bar continued to bring guests back to the sexy mystique of the nineteenth century underworld, or Underbelly if you will. It was yet another flirty Friday night, and the good news is that its on for young and old through to the end of September, with some talk suggesting the legendary nights may continue longer, so warmly embraced have been the carnival creatures and friends.

Management, guests and all and sundry have been having a ball of a time and the bar has enjoyed  huge business, as the 'Extra Cabaret' themed gets pushed to the limit such is the titillating and tantalising nature of the experience at Zeta’s ‘Extreme Cabaret’, now into its 6th sexy sly - devilish week.

The famous Zeta Bar was once again transformed into a theatrical era gone by. It's Moulin Rouge meets Burlesque, plus a dash of Underbelly, with live sensual themes to tantalise and titillate the guys and dolls. Don't forget the addictive cocktails and be sure to give the 'Green Fairy' absinth a go go. The theme may encourage adult style fantasy fun and games, and you're all over 18, so just go with the flow.

Zeta’s very own in-house ‘ringmaster’ of cocktails was back, and international expert bar consultant, Grant Collins, continues to deliver marvelous events via Extreme Cabaret at Zeta.

“To mirror the unique and vibrant event concept, I have developed a menu of cocktails with the same theatre and ‘shock factor’ as the dramatic décor and extraordinary acts,” Collins said. “Be prepared to expect the unexpected at Extreme Cabaret! I have no doubt that the acts, atmosphere and cocktails will amaze everyone who experiences them and keep them coming back for more.”

Be there every mystical and flirty Friday night, live entertainment will bring you to a lurid fantasy world, including extra extreme burlesque performers, juggling little people, fire acts, complete with shock-humour, freaky stuff and Ringmaster, and maybe even one or two unspeakables, but you will just have to get your body to turn up and find out for yourself you naughty boys and girls.

Tonight it was Human Statue models Anastasiya Bakss (rainbow fairy - feathered styled multi coloured number) and Julia Pabryzgaeva (risque absinth green fairy), and believe me, there was more skin than feathers darlings.

We hear that some Network Nine 'Underbelly Razor' stars were back in attendance tonight, but we've been asked not to name names.  You'll see a few of them back on Channel Nine this Sunday night as 'Underbelly Razor' enters its third week.

Special thanks again to Grant, Manual, Dave and Karina at the Hilton for keeping things running so great for us. Some guests may be tempted to do an overnighter at the Hilton and add themselves to the Hilton Hotel Honours Club like we did.

If your up to be titillated and tantalised in an acceptable, risque fashion, this is your opportunity to snatch the evening, and do 'Sin City' Sydney like it should be done.
