Holey Moley is opening a new mini golf club in the Cross

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.
