Guys, to say we're freaking out about this news would probably be the understatement of the century. Say sayonara to making the trek to Noosa for epic burgers, venturing southside for punchy Japanese eats, and scrambling around Sunnybank on the hunt for Brisbane's best yum cha because, holy smokes(!) one of Australia's biggest shopping centres, Westfield Chermside is about to launch their new precinct which will house new, classic, and all round delicious restaurants and bars. All on the Northside. Plus, this opening means that they're officially the biggest Westfield in Australia (the last round of openings, in April, featured Brisbane's first Sephora)!
Westfield, we salute you.
The best part? It's an absolute oasis: greenery, palm trees, water features, and over 20 eateries including Brisbane's first Betty's Burgers, Hermosa, Motto Motto, Zeus Street Greek, and a whole lot more delicious first-to-Brisbane venues, and classic favourites (for the full list click here!). Take a whole weekend to explore this one guys, you're going to need a while to check it all out!
To celebrate the mega-exciting opening, our friends at Westfield Chermside are throwing quite the party. Concert On The Green will see Young Franco performing live under The Urchin on Thursday 22nd June. Young Franco's set will be accompanied by an hour and a half long lighting show with freebies for guests (until they run out, so get in quick!) including mouth-watering popcorn. Plus, the beautiful green spaces will be kitted out with bespoke cushions featuring designs by artist Fintan Magee (that you get to take home—score!).
As if that wasn't enough fun, to celebrate the opening of the delicious new foodie precinct, there will be four epic days of events, entertainment, and offers. We're talking a pop-up Chandon bar, live entertainment in centre all weekend, complimentary treat carts, an Ironlak School of Art, and boomerang painting workshops! Clear your diaries people, this is a big one.
But, guys, it's more than just events—there is also going to be a whole heap of offers, too! Get your hands on the limited edition 'Strawberries & Chermside' Gelato from Gelatissimo, free to the first 200 customers on Thursday. On Saturday, Archer Specialty Coffee are giving away free coffee's all day and Zeus Street Greek are treating customers to free pitas between 12pm - 3pm!
We told you it was a big one, guys!
