Reach new foodie heights with UPSTAIRS at Toombul

It’s local dining, elevated – literally.

Mum’s mantra of ‘don’t play with your food’ need not apply to UPSTAIRS at Toombul, the northside’s newest foodie playground!

Upon opening on, Thursday, November 14, UPSTAIRS is set to celebrate with a two-week-long explosion of free glittery fairy floss, frozen rosé, watermelon and bubblegum slushies, alcoholic peach and lychee bellini pops, and dodgem cars courtesy of the highly anticipated Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq arcade/restaurant (which you can read more about here)!

It’s when the opening media circus is over that the real fun begins! There will never be a dull moment in the shopping centre precinct, with promises of live music and entertainment, art activations, dreamy pop-ups, a neon playground and even a popcorn ball pit in the works for December.

Alongside being the ultimate dining destination for the kids at heart, UPSTAIRS at Toombul also houses plenty of sophisticated options to choose from, including Italian from Il Gancio, mouth-watering cocktails from Dapple + Waver, café delights from Espresso Max, funky burgers from Hello Harry, and gourmet Asian bites from Little Red Dumpling, Niku Ramen and Sushi HYO.

Is your heart saying TRY EVERYTHING, but your wallet’s saying no? Good thing that UPSTAIRS is kicking off festivities with plenty of retailer specials precinct-wide!

While their Instagram will give you all the important deets, rumour has it that from November 14 to 17, Espresso Max will be handing out free coffee from 10am-11am, Sushi HYO will be dishing some plates for just $3, and Hello Harry will be running a competition which will reward one lucky winner with free burgers for a year.

Wind down from all the festivities with a wine in hand thanks to Il Gancio’s special offer starting December! Every Friday from 5pm, these guys will be shucking up delicious oysters for just $1 each every time you purchase a prosecco.

Not that we’re waiting one more prosecco – catch us running into UPSTAIRS at Toombul as soon as it opens on November 14!
