Named La La La’s, the venue is set to offer punters a slice of life from the big smoke, with cold drinks, gourmet food and big tunes expected to flow freely at the newly minted local. The venue’s capacity of 150 also opens up Wollongong’s potential for touring opportunities while gigging up the East Coast, particularly those braving the trip with limited resources or financial backing.
In a press statement released today, manager Nathan Stratton, who was formerly associated with UOW’s revered Uni Bar, described La La La’s, saying that “It’ll have a pinball, pool and relaxed pub feel. We’re also focused on making sure it’s got just a hint of them small bar vibes. We’re calling it a small pub and we’re pretty keen to build that kind of community around it!”
To celebrate the opening of the venue, Yours & Owls and La La La’s will be hosting a launch party on Thursday November 14 headlined by local four-piece TOTTY, with other events such as a female DJ workshop, a residency from The Pinheads and Music Farmer’s 15th Birthday with Shining Bird locked in for upcoming months.
