Friday evening I was invited to attend the media/VIP special opening of the new NightQuarter located at Helensvale (next to Helensvale Westfield Shopping Town), prior to the official launch Saturday night.
Gold Coast’s newest cultural and entertainment precinct, featuring night markets, street food, micro-restaurants, emerging fashion and live music.
Admittedly I got there right as they were still working on the finishing touches to the space, so didn’t get to experience the bazaar style atmosphere. However, after walking around as the sun went down, kicking my feet i the dirt, checking out the mix of vendors including speciality food purveyors, designers and craftspeople, it was easy to imagine myself immersed in this creative playground.
Living on the Gold Coast, the battle between the north and southern gold Coast has been forever prevalent with the north end repeatedly missing out, so as a Labrador resident, to have this project be so close to home is UBER exciting!
With eight unique areas and six bar concepts, NightQuarter will be open every Friday and Saturday night from 4-10pm.
Catering for live music and performances there is a 2000 capacity venue called The Paddock, a great platform for emerging Gold Coast artists and host for touring artists.
As I said, I didn’t get a chance to stick around for all the fun later that night, but I can guarantee you this is my new go-to place on the weekend!
