Harbour Town, one of Australia’s largest outlet shopping centres, has announced its flagship food offerings joining the new multi-million dollar dining precinct on track to open in December.

The new precinct will include an open-air plaza with a selection of food offerings located in front of Reading Cinemas. New names moving in range from the famous Asian hawker style market, 8 Street, to Crafty’s, a sports bar set to change the experiential hospitality landscape on the Gold Coast. With two existing locations in Queensland, 8 Street owner David Wu says the Asian street market will cover 600 square metres and will have 14 unique Asian street food stalls. He is looking forward to offering the Northern Gold Coast an exceptional food offering of Asian cuisine.

Looking to redefine sports bars into all day, family friendly venues, Crafty’s will offer DJs, food trucks, games of skill, fresh food, bottomless cold press mimosas from 9am to 3pm, and 12 taps with rotating craft beers. Crafty’s Managing Director, David Galvin says Crafty’s is all about balance and will be an enjoyable place to catch up with friends over a morning coffee or to watch a sports game over cocktails and craft beer. “Crafty’s has something for everyone, we will have a kids’ under 12 menu with low sugar sodas and tasty spiders, and an activities space during holidays so mum and dad can relax over lunch,” David shares.

This $25 million project will be the biggest addition to Harbour Town since the North West Mall was unveiled in May 2016. Further announcements to come in the next few weeks include the official name of the dining precinct and additional retailers. These will expand upon the already enticing range of international foods and flavours at Harbour Town, offering customers a new place to meet, eat, and socialise with friends and family.
