After some initial construction delays, NightQuarter is now set to open in early 2020. The delays have given owners Michelle Christoe and Ian Van der Woude more time to develop exciting new initiatives for the entertainment destination.
Located adjacent to Stockland Birtinya, NightQuarter will feature new installations, new food concepts and new precincts, including Wonder and the Enchanted Garden.
Wonder is an immersive social environment inspired by vintage fairgrounds and will feature a collection of vintage amusements with dodgems, carnival games, arcades and interactive installations, as well as nostalgic fairy ﬂoss, caramel apples and dagwood dogs.
The precinct is perfect for family fun, with adults-only sessions after 8pm.
The Enchanted Garden will be a lush and leafy space with interwoven festoon and fairy lights, a cocktail bar and a curated selection of food stallholders with a kaleidoscope of ﬂavours.
The popular Hawker Street will be returning with local Sunshine Coast stallholders creating dishes from around the world, a buzzing atmosphere of street food stallholders, hawkers and a brand-new live music stage.
NightQuarter will have ﬁve stages, including NightQuarter Live.
“We want to continue to connect people and create moments of joy,” Ms Christoe says.
“NightQuarter will be a place for the incubation of talent and creativity.
“Creating a culturally inclusive environment and community is at the heart of the development of the space.
“We are working closely with a number of local organisation, artists and community leaders.
“The NightQuarter space is created from recycled materials, from shipping containers to reclaimed timbers to artworks created from salvaged plastics,” she adds. “The new site will feature a series of artworks created in collaboration with artist Tracie Eaton using reclaimed bubble wrap, cans and plastics.
“Stallholders will use compostable packaging and containers and customers are encouraged to bring their own containers. We will be working with
local charity organisation Wishlist and Envirobank to recycle bottles and cans.”
The venue will open with an exclusive opening weekend with limited numbers. Early access registration is open now at nightquarter.com.au.
