Our first underground Christmas Party

Our team at The Missing Link took all our favourite Melbourne clients to the city's best subterranean bar, Beneath Driver Lane. The bar is set in an old bank vault, with a sophisticated cocktail menu and a Whisky list that reads like a book - it promised to be a great night. We all felt a world away from the bustling city above, partying in brick arched booths, the walls full with cool black and white photos, and the flickering light from candles, low-hanging lamps and comfortable seating. It was the perfect setting for our annual end of year party and the crowd did not disappoint!

When the night was young

The night kicked off with two lucky clients Benjamin Phyper from Work Health Group and Sud Setia from CHED Service, winning the opportunity to head to the famed Whisky Vault. The leaders of our Cyber Security division Aaron Bailey and Sam Marshall, were very happy to keep them company. There they tasted some of the planets best single malt Scotch Whisky. Including the incredible, special release 35-year-old Caol Ila… for an hour they drank and felt like Hollywood super stars.

To new beginnings...

Our CEO, Alex Gambotto, gave a great speech which had the bustling crowd in raucous laughter. From a business point of view, he shared the exciting news that we are opening a new division, Robotic Process Automation. Productivity for our clients will go through the roof, as Alex said 20% of the average person’s work could be automated in the near future’, ultimately automation will result in ‘fewer errors in data entry, analysis and more productivity.’

His speech set the positive mood and from that point on the night really got going, the food rolled out, with the crispy fried chicken and Wagu filled Rubens being the big hits. We ate our fill and that seemed to pack everybody full of more energy than a Red Bull ever could. The party moved up a gear, even for those who were traditionally not Whisky drinkers. The highly professional bartenders dressed in incredibly sharp-looking black chef coats started mixing up a storm… the most popular of the night were the Whisky Sours. While the wow factor came from those channeling a little James Bond, with Martini’s made in a delicate glass chilled with swirling liquid nitrogen.

The photos below are proof all had an amazing night. Thank you again to all our amazing Melbourne based clients, we hope you have a great end to the year and enjoy the well earned time off with family and friends over the festive season.
