Start rubbing your hands in glee, inner north westerners. You’re about to get your very own food truck park, just in time for summer.
The space, which includes a high-ceiling indoor bar, has been transformed from a vacant car lot into a cheery pastel-painted space, with picnic tables, timber stools and brick booths perfect for balmy afternoon hangouts. There’ll be live music every weekend, video projections on the walls and $10 Espresso Martinis on tap at the bar. Plus, the entire venue is pooch-friendly, so feel free to bring your four-legged friend along too.
Now, the food. The Ascot Lot will rotate food truck line-ups weekly, and you’ll be able to get all the information you’ll need from their facebook page. Opening weekend is scheduled for October 26, 27 and 28 and they’ve got Poke Time, Just Like Nonna's, the Art of Fried Chicken, Two Fat Indians, Nuoc Mama’s, Sliders on Tyres, and Dip’d Gourmet Donuts all locked in.
Opening hours for the food truck park are Friday 5-10pm, Saturday noon-10pm and Sunday noon-9pm, but their onsite coffee shop is open seven days a week serving Decali coffee and freshly made jaffles.
Initially slated to just run through summer, the Ascot Lot team have confirmed to Time Out that they will be open for one year at a minimum. You beauty!
