Man, we’re suckers for big news. And this, our friends, is huuuuge!

The Gold Coast is literally weeks away from welcoming an upmarket, cruelty-free, vegan marketplace—the first of its kind in Australia no less!—and we’re seriously bursting with anticipation. 

Those in the know already have a massive crush on SEQ fashion boutique Lovechild Place. Given the overwhelming success of Lovechild’s shop and their bi-monthly markets in 2017, it appears the concept and energy was too strong to overlook. And today, we get to share all the details of their trailblazing new venture. You ready? 

To be known as LCMP (AKA, Lovechild Market Place), this 1,000-square metre, two-level venue, with a prominent position on the north bound lane of the Gold Coast Highway between Miami and Nobby Beach, is certain to become a vibrant new hangout for every Gold Coaster and Brissy day-tripper.

Downstairs, leading plant-based businesses will be open seven days for breakfast, lunch and, soon to follow, dinner and drinks. Picture wooden decked seating at the front under an area named THE PATIO. A feature breeze block wall and greenery-filled garden area to be dubbed the BREEZE GARDEN (for those who choose to dine from more casual eateries such as Flour of Life Bakery). And, what we’re seriously frothing over, plans for a grand wooden deck to span the 200-square metre rear area, with a soon-to-be licensed bar and alfresco dining zone, and more good vibes than you’ll possibly know what to do with. Um, excited much?! 

Casual, high end-style restaurants to form @lcmp_miami’s THE DINES include Flour Of Life BakeryFlora By Greenhouse, famed Sydney restaurant Gigi’s PizzeriaI Like Ramen, BVK (Burgers vs Kebabs) and more!=

In addition to the fancy fast food dining options downstairs, stage two will see Abbey moving and expanding her uber popular Lovechild Place clothing and wares into the second level retail space; to be joined by a cruelty-free nail and beauty bar, with more businesses yet to be announced. 

With so many hands and hearts dedicated to bringing LCMP to life, you know they’re going to create something magnetic that the entire community will embrace with open arms. We for one will be first in line when the doors are thrown open!
