Love it or hate it, Kings Cross is no longer the buzzy Saturday night precinct it once was (vale) but even though the four-year-old lockout laws have closed venues and dampened spirits, people do still venture to the Coca-Cola sign looking for a good time.
In divisive news, the indoor mini golf club Holey Moley have today announced they’ll be opening a flagship venue under that iconic Coke sign on May 10, 2018.
It’ll be a two-storey venue with 27 putt-putt holes, three bars and a restaurant serving burgers, loaded fries and supersized, super-sugary cocktails.
Remember the bar the Piano Room? One of the nine-hole courses is housed in the former Piano Room venue and they’re “keeping the bar’s longstanding features” – as if anyone was sober enough to recall what those were.
It’ll also be themed – a roaring ’20s vibe – as in the famously decadent era of excessive booze, late-night dancing, sly grog and razor gangs in that very area of Darlinghurst and Potts Point. The owners of Funlab say the 1920s theme is to encourage “free-spirited abandon” and to “let loose and just have fun”.
The venue will be open daily, staying open until midnight on weekdays and till 2am on Saturday. A round of nine holes will cost $16.50pp. Find out more about Holey Moley Darlinghurst.
