The Hawthorn revival has made a giant leap with the launch of Untz Untz, a new multifaceted venue from local music entrepreneur and club veteran Nick Foley that boasts a shiny 24-hour liquor license and more than a handful of ambitious plans. Gutting the former, long-standing Cheers and replacing it with a concept venue that’s going to be rolling out in stages this year. The first stage is a 280 capacity Band room with a side room that holds around 60 people, the sight of what will become regular 24-hour parties that are guaranteed to galvanize the local party scene.
Stage Two of the development will be unlocking a part of the venue to be known as “Holy Moly”, a pub which has been designed by Michael Delaney, followed by “Boozy Soozy” from local pizza master Henry Chan, featuring cocktails on tap. Designed and marketed as a “multifaceted entertainment venue with a live music core”, Untz Untz will certainly be one of the central features of the new Hawthorn precinct which will be fully fleshed out come September of this year.
Live music will take priority over everything else here, with sound pumped out by a fully kitted NEXO sound system over a world-first engineered Infinity dance floor installation that’s a bit of a throwback to vintage disco.
“We are excited to be breathing life back into an iconic Hawthorn venue and ensuring that there is something here for everyone. We want people to come here for a late lunch and catch up, sit up at the pub, watch some live and local talent, have a boogie in the club until morning… the list goes on!” says Foley.
Trade nights will be featured throughout the week, starting with “Cheers Tuesdays”, going onto “Animal House” on Thursdays, “Beta Bar” on Fridays, and “Adultery” on Saturdays (strictly +21yo). Their 24-hour party, “Sensory”, will debut on the Queens birthday weekend and take place every long weekend after.
>Untz Untz is located at 660A Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn, Melbourne. More information can be found on their Facebook page HERE.
