RED carpet? Check. Friendly concierge? Check. Not having to worry about where to park your car? Check.

A new exclusive valet parking service is set to bring next-level luxury to a night out at The Juniors Kingsford.

Like other businesses along the light rail route, The Juniors has been suffering a loss in patronage which General Manager of Customer Services Paul Muir put down to a lack of parking, as light rail construction has swallowed up parking spots along Anzac Pde.

Mr Muir said the partnership with First Class Valet would be available on Friday and Saturday nights, and during other special events.

“When we trialled valet parking, the members all thought it was great to be able to pull up at the front of the club and not have to worry about where they have to park,” he said.

“Plus, we don’t want people to miss the start of a show just because they’ve had to drive around for a spot.”

The service will use the club’s underground car park, but with their “stack and rack” technique, First Class Valet can create at least 40 extra car spaces.

“You just have to pull up to where the red carpet is just like the rich and famous,” Mr Muir said.

First Class Valet’s managing director Robert Horton said it was “about time” venues in Australia used a five star concierge service.

“There’s a such a lack of space in the city and we're all so very busy in Sydney, the last thing you want to worry about is parking your car,” he said.

“Customers remember how the night started and they definitely remember how it ended – you don’t want to have to walk a kilometre and a half in your Sunday best.”
