Q's grand opening
took place last Friday night with a spectacular party featuring performances all over the building from some of New Zealand's brightest and best, all directed by Mike Mizrahi
and Marie Adams

and the Jubilation Choir, before guests danced to bands and DJs until the small hours. Keep an eye on our website for photos of this incredible celebration.
