We hope you’re ready to kick putt Auckland, because new kid on the nightlife block,Holey Moley, is about to shake things up, golfing style.

Ideal for Christmas parties, evenings with mates and date night, Holey Moley brings together a mini golf course and bar to turn traditional putt-putt into a multi-sensory labyrinth for grown-ups. Full of twists, turns and a few surprises, it’ll keep you on your toes throughout the craziest round of golf you’ve ever played.

Opening its doors at the Viaduct this October, the bar will be the first of Australia’s Funlab concepts to open on our shores. Michael Schrieber, CEO of Funlab, says; “We’re launching Holey Moley to inject some real fun back into a night out, getting people together for a few rounds of old-school entertainment, with a drink in hand.

“We’ve been wanting to make the jump over to New Zealand for a while now, but knew if we were going to, we couldn’t do things by half. I’m confident that swing- savvy Kiwis will not be disappointed; we’ve got some surprises up our sleeve and I honestly think it’s going to be one of our best locations to date,” adds Michael.

The venue sprawls two storeys and boasts 27 themed golf holes. Live DJs will perform while two bars will serve the best craft beers and mouth-watering cocktails. In-between rounds and hydration breaks, a full-service kitchen boasts a menu of burgers, loaded fries and bar snacks, fit to refuel the hungriest of clubbers.

Holey Moley will tee off for the public on 11 October at 204 Quay Street (previously The Nightingale) and will be open seven days until late. Reservations are now being taken and it’s set to be busy, so book early to avoid disappointment.
