In what’s set to be the biggest news of the week, the Gold Coast’s award-winning street food night market, NightQuarter is launching on the Sunshine Coast and we can barely contain our excitement.
Opening on the Gold Coast in 2015, NightQuarter gained thousands of loyal followers for its enticing mix of incredible food and interactive installations, as well as pulling some of the best big name live music acts. But, in early 2019, the thriving marketplace sadly closed its doors due to a rent dispute with the landlord.
In an unexpected turn of events, Gold Coast’s loss will become the Sunshine Coast’s gain, when NightQuarter sets up its permanent Eat Street-style market in upcycled shipping containers later this year.
This eclectic sprawling night market will be located in Birtinya and we’ve no doubt it’s going to be the best place to mosey and taste your way around every Friday and Saturday night from 4pm to 10pm.
Along with the delectable food, what really set this market apart on the Gold Coast, was its support of live music. Hosting the likes of The Cat Empire, UB40, Amy Shark, The Living End and so many more, it’s safe to say we can expect some impressive talent to hit our Sunshine Coast shores and the NightQuarter stage in 2020.
Bursting with energy, colour and plenty of ridiculously good smells, NightQuarter will create a much-needed urban playground in the heart of our coastal region. And we can hand-on-heart say, this is something you’re definitely going to want to check out.
So spread the word, and get ready to open your wallet, loosen your belt, and enjoy a multi-sensory feast like nothing the Coast has seen.
Whilst there’s no exact launch date yet, we’ll be dishing up that info as soon as it’s locked in. For now, you can stay up to date with all things NightQuarter here.
When: Opening late 2019 (Friday and Saturday from 4pm to 10pm thereafter)
