Holey sh*t, you guys. Melbourne’s favourite mini-golf-club-come-cocktail-bar, Holey Moley, has had a major facelift.
If you haven’t spent a night with a cocktail in one hand and a golf club in the other, now is definitely the time to get on it. Holey Moley is officially reopening this Tuesday 12 June (AKA today) with nine brand spankin' new holes.
If you’re not familiar with Holey Moley, shame on you (jks, you're all right). Holey Moley was launched in Melbs by Funlab—the masterminds behind Strike Bowling Bars and Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq—in March last year. In that short period of time, putt-happy Melbourninans have played over 30,000 rounds of mini golf, cocktail in hand, with approximately 5,000 people teeing off every week. That’s a lot of balls.
It's because of this popularity that Funlab has revamped the existing space, and we’ll cheers to that.
Funlab CEO Michael Schreiber believes that Holey Moley has cemented itself as an Australian entertainment icon because of its capacity to celebrate “pop-culture and nostalgia, with a dash of friendly competition and delicious cocktails thrown in to measure”.
As if the original recreation of the Simpsons’ own lounge room wasn’t enough to tickle your fancy, you will now get to putt your way through these newbies: The ‘These Pretzels Are Making Me Thirstee’ hole (a pretzel-shaped hole with a twist); the ‘Zappy Go Larry’ hole (yep, everyone’s favourite Operation board game has been resurrected for Holey Moley putters); the ‘Ferris Wheelers’ hole and the ‘Feelin’ Ducky Punk?’ hole. There's even a miniature AFL ground and an honest-to-god DeLorean from Back To The Future (they called it 'Great Putt!'...nice).
And it gets better. The ground level bar area will also be taken to a whole new level, with a refurbished design and a new range of cocktails set to quench the thirst of every putter.
Yep, we’re thinking this one sounds pretty good. See you there, fam.
